AUGUSTINE MK CHOI: Science is transforming the practice of medicine and when you begin treating patients, you'll be able to help them in ways previous generations never could. It'll be a challenge for sure but you'll have the support and the guidance of our amazing faculty. We're eager to see you succeed and become the best doctors you can be.
Today's ceremony marks the first step in your training and in what we hope will be a lifetime of learning about medicine and about science. Congratulations again to all of you and best of luck as you embark on this new adventure. Thank you very much.
[? JAMES WEINBRIG: My ?] name's [? James ?] [? Weinbrig. ?] I'm from Rochester, New York. I graduated from Cornell University in Ithaca in 2015. The white coat ceremony is an important day for us. I'd like to get involved in some kind of longitudinal care where I'm seeing a diverse group of patients over months or years and build a really good relationship with that body of patients.
MARIAM: My name is Mariam. I'm from Columbia, South Carolina and I went to Columbia for my undergrad degree. We've all worked tremendously hard to be here and it's a landmark moment for all of us. So it really means a lot.
[? ARIANA RABINOWICH: I'm ?] [? Ariana ?] [? Rabinowich. ?] I'm from New York City and I went to NYU for undergrad. I'm an MD PhD candidate so science is also really important to me and the ability to integrate the two of those in order to help people is something that I'm really excited to be able to do.
[? NEVILLE DUSAGE: My ?] name is [? Neville ?] [? Dusage. ?] I am from Towaco, New Jersey and I went to the University of Pennsylvania for undergrad. So I think Weill Cornell is a great place to combine research and clinical care because we have Sloan Kettering Rockefeller right around the corner, where a whole bunch of different research resources are available to everyone.
[? DANIEL POSTEN: I am ?] [? Daniel ?] [? Posten. ?] I am from Sioux City, Iowa and I went to school at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. I want to be on that forefront of the progression of medical science that will lead to hopefully better treatment options in the future, better patient outcomes, better quality of life, and less suffering and disease.
[? NOMA ADAKU: My name ?] [? is Noma Adaku. ?] I'm originally from Bronx in New York and I went to Yale University for undergrad. Currently, my interests are in oncology, both research-wise and clinical-wise. So We'll see how that goes but I think I've enjoyed my experiences in the field so far.
[? BARBARA LENESAHAGEN: My name ?] [? is Barbara ?] [? Lenesahagen. ?] I attended UCLA as an undergrad and I was born in Guatemala. It's really nice to just be with all the family and friends to see the white coats being put on. It's very humbling and very prestigious and very exciting. I love being part of this family.
