Medical Family Day is an opportunity for families of first-year medical students to celebrate medical education at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Families are also able to learn more about the experiences and daily life of their medical students through panel discussions and presentations.

Medical Family Day includes the annual White Coat Ceremony, which started at the School of Medicine in 1997. The White Coat Ceremony involves the presentation of traditional white coats, long the symbol of physicians and scientists, to first-year medical students. The coats are put on the students by School of Medicine faculty, to welcome their new colleagues to the profession of medicine. After being "coated," students recited an oath acknowledging their acceptance of the obligations of the medical profession.
