MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- This was the traditional white coat ceremony for incoming students at the Medical College of Wisconsin. 

It's a key step on the path to becoming a doctor -- and 220 students are part of the incoming class this time.

This new class is 60 percent female and 50 percent of the students are from Wisconsin. 

Today's speakers at the ceremony included a very enthusiastic President-elect of the Wisconsin Medical Society.

"I know you could have picked any profession, lawyer, engineer, billionaire startup executive.  But you chose medicine, one of the greatest professions in this world, so thank you," said Dr. Lee, President-elect of the Wisconsin Medical Society.

Dr. Lee says that each of the white coats has a note in the pocket with words of encouragement from another member of the medical profession.
