Members of the NSU Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Allopathic Medicine recite the modern Hippocratic Oath.

On Saturday, July 28, 2018, NSU made history as it welcomed approximately 300 incoming medical students in the nation’s first combined White Coat Ceremony celebrating Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) and Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) candidates together.

The Florida-based university is now one of only three in the U.S. with two medical colleges.  The White Coat Ceremony also served as the official welcome for the charter class of 53 M.D. students, who are enrolled in the new Nova Southeastern University Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Allopathic Medicine (NSU MD).

These milestones received significant media attention. Highlights are linked below.
