PC School of Pharmacy Welcomes the Class of 2017
The white coat is one of the most recognized symbol of the health care profession. Each fall, Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy holds a White Coat Ceremony to induct first year graduate pharmacy students into the profession of pharmacy. On August 24, 2013, 81 students were welcomed into the program as the Class of 2017 and received the first white coats they will wear during their laboratory and experiential education as pharmacy students.
“We are delighted to welcome the Class of 2017 into our program,” said Dr. Cliff Fuhrman, Dean of the Pharmacy School. “We are committed to providing them with a quality education and the opportunities to serve the community and the profession of pharmacy.”
Dr. John Pearson, Manager of Pharmacy Clinical Services at the Greenville Health System, delivered the keynote address at the ceremony to prepare the class for what will lay ahead of them on in the next four years and beyond.
Students then recited the Honor Code Pledge that encourages them to maintain a high standard of honesty and truthfulness for themselves and for the college. Students then recited the Pledge of Professionalism that reinforces a professional identity founded on integrity, ethical behavior, and honor.
A special thanks goes out to Mr. Steve Greene and CVS Caremark for sponsoring the White Coat Ceremony.
