White Coat Ceremony 2021 Sponsors Support Next Generation

Published on 13 September 2021

The annual St. Louis College of Pharmacy White Coat Ceremony at University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis is a beloved campus tradition for students, staff and faculty. It also serves as an opportunity for alumni, donors, families and friends of the University to support the next generation of student pharmacists through white coat sponsorship.

The ceremony marks students’ transition into the professional program. Having completed coursework to equip them with knowledge in the arts, humanities and sciences, each student receives their white coat and recites the Oath of a Pharmacist to reflect on the responsibility that comes with their new role as a student pharmacist.

Through white coat sponsorship, donors help cover the costs of the white coat and include a personal note sharing words of encouragement to help welcome the new student pharmacists into the profession.

Thank you to the following 2021 white coat sponsors!
