2016 Jan 11
Thirty-seven students from University of the Sciences' physician assistant studies program joined the ranks of professionals following the second annual PA White Coat Ceremony on Friday, Dec. 18, 2015.
The ceremony for the class of 2017 commemorated the formal presentation of a white coat for physician assistant students as they begin working clinically with patients in hospitals and outpatient settings. At the ceremony, the students recited the oath of a physician assistant, a gesture to reinforce their commitment to working with patients compassionately and to enhancing their health and well-being.
The students continue on the path to a master of science in physician assistant studies.
