The White Coat Ceremony

Dear Class of 2020,

The White Coat Ceremony will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 1:00 pm.  The White Coat Ceremony provides students a symbolic transition from the didactic to the clinical phase of veterinary education.  The white coat is a symbol of medical professionalism and the ceremony signifies the beginning of your clinical apprenticeship to sustain and restore the health of animals and people.

Friends and family are invited to attend this important tradition in the College of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University.
