Clinical Laboratory Sciences White Coat Ceremony

The Clinical Laboratory Sciences White Coat Ceremony will be October 1, 2024 at 6 p.m. in D'Angelo Center, Room 416A.

White Coat Ceremony

The White Coat Ceremony is a symbolic rite of passage for students of the healing arts. For the clinical laboratory sciences student, it signifies a professional relationship with other colleagues who provide health care services.

This ceremony reaffirms the medical community’s support of the educational process that prepares future health providers for practice. On this day, students pledge their commitment to the clinical laboratory sciences profession and the health of the patients they serve. Contributing to the care and healing of others is a privilege and a responsibility. The white coat worn by each clinical laboratory sciences student is more than a familiar lab coat; it is a cloak of caring, compassion, and service.
