White Coat Ceremony

UPDATE (08/23/2018): Due to forecasted rain on Friday, Aug. 24, the 2018 White Coat Ceremony will be moved indoors. The locations below have been updated to reflect this change.

The St. Louis College of Pharmacy White Coat Ceremony will mark the class of 2022'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 2022.
