White Coat Celebration
The White Coat Ceremony is a wonderful and meaningful tradition in which the UCSF School of Pharmacy welcomes first-year doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) students as colleagues dedicated to patient care. Under normal circumstances, pharmacy alumni present entering students with a white coat, the symbol of clinical service and care. The students also take the Oath of a Pharmacist, a pledge of professionalism.
This year the presentation of white coats will take place remotely, and the event will be marked by an online White Coat Celebration.
The celebration begins on Friday, October 15 at 5:30 p.m. Pacific time.
This video event lets students and guests experience the White Coat Celebration together. All are welcome to join the video-watch celebration online. The video will also be available for later viewing.
