Medical Education

CONTEXT: White coat ceremonies (WCCs) are widely prevalent as a celebration of matriculation in medical schools. Critics have questioned whether these ceremonies can successfully combine the themes of professionalism and humanism, as well as whether the white coat is an appropriate symbol. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to add a process of empirical assessment to the discussion of these criticisms by analysing the content and messages communicated during these ceremonies.

Hospital Progress

All persons who serve the Lord through their work in a health care facility should be considered healers and need to be made aware of the special charisms in healing. Among the means of accomplishing this are pastoral department input into new staff orientation, periodic workshops recalling the Church's commitment to healing, special days of recollection, Masses, Bible services, scriptural sharings, and prayer groups. Especially meaningful may be a ceremoney in which individuals are anointed with oil to dedicate them to the charisms of their particular tasks.

Homeopathy: The Journal of the Faculty of Homeopathy

In 2010 the 200th anniversary of the Organon is celebrated by the homeopathic community. Samuel Hahnemann's Organon of Rational Therapeutics, published in 1810, however, marks neither the beginning of homeopathy nor the endpoint of its development. On the one hand, its contents are based on terms and concepts developed and published by Hahnemann during the preceding two decades. On the other hand, the five revised editions of the Organon that followed in the next three decades contain major changes of theory and conceptions.
