P.C. Pharmacy Students Presented White Coats

The Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy held its annual White Coat Ceremony for its incoming students Friday. The white coats are symbolic of the professionalism that is expected of students not only during pharmacy school, but also throughout their eventual practice of pharmacy. The ceremony reaffirms the pharmacy community’s support of the educational commitment as the students pledge to serve their profession and patients

During the ceremony, Susan Eagerton, the 2016-2017 Preceptor of the Year, addressed the class. She said “Putting on that white coat for the first time is really exciting. You may even feel just a little bit smarter.”  She also instructed the new Pharmacy students to “Treat every experience as a job interview,” noting “There is still something to learn in every experience. Take initiative—do more than is expected of you.”
