Class of 2017 White Coat Ceremony

Student Pharmacists Mark Rite of Passage at White Coat Ceremony

Family members and friends of nearly 200 students gathered at Duquesne University on August 28 for the 11th annual White Coat Ceremony, which serves to mark pharmacy students' first year of professional study as pharmacists.

Hosted by the Mylan School of Pharmacy, this year's ceremony featured students entering the third year of the school's six-year Pharm.D. program. The students were presented with white coats that they will wear during their laboratory work and experiential education, and recited a pledge of professionalism.

David J. Wargo, vice president of North American technical service at Mylan Pharmaceuticals, delivered the keynote address at the White Coat Ceremony.

Rite Aid Pharmacy sponsored a reception following the ceremony
