Pharmacy Welcomes Class of 2023 at Annual White Coat Ceremonies

Dallas White Coat CeremonyThe TTUHSC Jerry H. Hodge School of Pharmacy welcomed the 157-member Class of 2023 with white coat ceremonies at the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Abilene and Amarillo campuses. The annual events invite family members and friends to watch as the school’s incoming students receive their traditional white pharmacy jackets, sign the Pharmacist Code of Conduct and recite for the first time the Oath of a Pharmacist.

The DFW ceremony, held Aug. 3, included 54 incoming first-year students. Abilene’s 38-member Class of 2023 attended their ceremony Aug. 4 and Amarillo’s 65 Class of 2023 members attended their ceremony Aug. 11 at the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts. Walgreens sponsored all three ceremonies.

As a universally recognized symbol of health care, the pharmacy white coat encompasses all aspects of pharmacy and the delivery of pharmaceutical care. For incoming students, receiving the white coat is a reminder of the commitment they are making to an honorable and trusted profession.

The Oath of a Pharmacist is based upon the Oath of Maimonides and was adopted by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy in 1983. The Pharmacist Code of Conduct defines the roles and responsibilities of pharmacists and forms the basis for student conduct when they interact with patients and colleagues during their years in the TTUHSC pharmacy program and after they graduate and enter the profession.
