The UC College of Pharmacy hosted its annual White Coat
Ceremony Tuesday, Sept. 23. This ceremony was the culmination of a
two-day orientation for incoming pharmacy students.
"As a student begins his or her career in pharmacy, it
is critical that there is a sense of professionalism and dedication to
the care of patients," said Daniel Acosta, PhD, dean of the UC College
of Pharmacy. "The white coat ceremony stresses the importance of
patient care and the role that a pharmacy practitioner plays in the
overall health of the public."
