Coating Ceremony: Class of 2016

The Professional Coating Ceremony marks the end of our sophomore students’ didactic classroom training and the beginning of their hospital clerkship rotations. It is a time our students embrace with great anticipation as they begin their clinical training with clinicians, clients, and patients.

A great deal of personal accomplishment and pride is associated with our students reaching this phase of their professional education. In order to recognize their achievements, the college presents a “white clinic lab coat” to each sophomore student embroidered with his or her name and class year. The presentation of the coats symbolizes the college’s affirmation that these students are qualified to begin the clinical phase of their education.
