Physician Assistant Class of 2019 White Coat Ceremony
The white coat is a powerful symbol of both professional competence and human compassion. Florida State University College of Medicine School of Physician Assistant Practice marks this symbolic beginning of a PA student with the annual White Coat Ceremony. Members of the first year class will be presented with the traditional white coat in the presence of family, faculty and staff.
The ceremonial presentation of white coats to PA students is a popular practice throughout the country. The ceremony and oath of commitment to patient care, compassion and professionalism remind the incoming students of the dedication necessary to complete their PA education as well as underscore the responsibilities inherent in the practice of medicine.
