A Good Fit

Members of the UF College of Medicine’s class of 2020 passed a major milestone on their journey to becoming physicians on Nov. 20 during the Mark S. Gold, M.D. ’75, Distinguished Professor and Alumnus White Coat Ceremony. Each of the 135 members of the class walked across the stage of the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and donned his or her white coat for the first time, amid cheers and applause from family and friends. Patrick Duff, M.D., the associate dean for student affairs, gave the students tips for success from sources as varied as Mother Teresa and Yogi Berra. “Put forth your best effort, even when you’re tired, even when you’re frustrated,” he said. “Be receptive to things new and different.” — Tyler Francischine
