White Coat Ceremony for the Class of 2017

Students in the Wake Forest PA Program’s Class of 2017 received their white coats during a ceremony held on June 29th in Wait Chapel on the university’s Reynolda Campus. Led by PA Studies vice chair L. Gail Curtis, PA-C, MPAS, the 88 students recited the PA Honor Oath, by which they commit themselves to maintaining the highest standards of honor and professional conduct during their training and afterward. The students then received their white coats from members of the PA Class of 2016. Family members and friends joined the PA program faculty and staff to celebrate this important rite of passage, which included a welcome from program director Zachary Hartsell, MPAS, PA-C; a keynote address from medical director K. Patrick Ober, MD; and concluding remarks from director of preclinical education Erich Grant, MMS, PA-C. A reception on Hearn Plaza outside Wait Chapel immediately followed the ceremony.
