WHITE COAT CEREMONY
The Dr. Gordon J. Vanscoy White Coat Ceremony
The Dr. Gordon J. Vanscoy White Coat Ceremony marks the entry to professional life for University of Pittsburgh first-year pharmacy students. Each student will receive a white coat as a symbol of professionalism, integrity, and purity of motive.
By accepting the coat, each student commits to a profession of giving—giving back to society through service as a medication expert, giving back to the community as an accessible and respected health provider, giving back to the school that provided the tools for success, and most importantly, giving back to the family that made it all possible through love, sacrifice, and pride.
The ceremony is also dedicated to all parents who experience the pride of seeing their son or daughter accept the white coat and assume the responsibilities of a life of caring, healing, and compassion.
The ceremony took place January 31, 2014 at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh.
VERY PROUD OF YOU BRANDI!
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
