White Coat Ceremony

The St. Louis College of Pharmacy White Coat Ceremony will mark the class of 2024's transition into the professional program. Having completed coursework to equip them with knowledge in the arts, humanities and sciences, each student will receive a white coat and reflect on the profound responsibility that comes with their new role as a member of the profession.

Join us as we celebrate the Pharm.D. class of 2024.

Rachel Marchi, Class of 2020

"The White Coat Ceremony symbolizes the beginning of my professional studies as I take the next step toward pursuing my passion."

- Amy Wong, Class of 2019

“It was a great feeling to be welcomed by a practicing pharmacist who was once in my place. The note showed me that I was entering a community of support and understanding.”
