Saturday, Katie was officially welcomed into the world of medicine. First year med students, or M1's as they are called, were given their official white coats and took the Hypocratic Oath.
The photo on the top right is of Katie and her roommate Eileen.
She is part of a class of 300 m1's this year. The federal government has mandated that all med schools up their enrolled to prepare for a shortage of doctors in the future. All those baby boomers "coming of age".
You can follow her life as a med student on her blog. The link is on this page.
