The University of Georgia College of Pharmacy welcomed 138 new Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) students during its annual White Coat Ceremony held Saturday, Aug. 12 at Hodgson Concert Hall in the UGA Performing Arts Center. Sponsored by The Kroger Company, the ceremony was highlighted with members of the Class of 2021 donning white laboratory coats, which they will wear throughout their four-year tenure at the college.
“These 138 men and women will make a mark on our college, their chosen profession and society as a whole,” said Svein Øie, dean of the College of Pharmacy. “They will spend the next four years working diligently to prepare for the provision of patient care in such settings as retail and independent drug stores, hospitals and health care facilities, research laboratories, government organizations and agencies, and more. We are proud they have joined us at our college.”
