White Coat Ceremony

On August 27, the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences hosted its 21st Annual White Coat Ceremony. This year, the College welcomed 74 Physician Assistant students and 80 P1 Pharmacy students in the first year of their professional programs and into their respective professional communities.

Speakers for the White Coat Ceremony included Lori Vasquez, a 2003 graduate of Butler’s PA Studies Program and Greg Fox, Pharmacy Department Merchandiser for the Central Division of Kroger. They welcomed the students into their respective professional journeys. Kroger was the sponsor of the White Coat Ceremony.

The White Coat Ceremony carries the symbolism of past accomplishments, entry into the professional program, and support from the faculty and families. Since 2000, over 3,000 Butler Pharmacy and PA students have received their first white coats through donations from parents, alumni, faculty, staff, professional partners, and friends of the college.

Congratulations to the PA Class of 2023 and the Pharmacy Class of 2025!
