WRS Member Derrick Siebert, MD, a graduate of Medical College of Wisconsin, received his first white coat in 2004. This year, he’s delighted to pay it forward by sponsoring a white coat and helping to welcome students to the medical profession through the Foundation’s White Coat Campaign.
WRS established the Flaherty Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009 to recognize the career achievements and outstanding contributions to the profession of radiology by physicians practicing in Wisconsin.
Since 2001, students attending medical school in Wisconsin have received their first white coat and a personal note of encouragement from a physician through the Foundation’s White Coat Campaign. With this year’s record-breaking class of more than 435 medical students, more donations than ever are needed to make sure all students are welcomed warmly to the medical profession.
