Sixty-Six Students Receive Their ‘White Coats’ At Gala Event
Families of 66 Touro College Doctor of Pharmacy students recently joined with faculty and guests, as the students were called up individually to receive their “white coat.” This ceremony is the traditional beginning of their entrance into a four-year program, split evenly between classroom and field work. Representatives of the program’s supporters, such as CVS Caremark, Duane Reade, Rite Aid, and Walgreens helped the students don their coats. The ceremony took place at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Manhattan.
In his address Dr. Bernard Lander, Touro’s founder and president, said the School of Pharmacy would reflect the values of Touro College.Dean Dr. Stuart Feldman remarked, “This will be the first school of pharmacy to open in New York City in over 68 years. The neighborhoods are sorely in need of more registered pharmacists. Our innovative program will be housed in modern, state-of-the-art facilities. The curriculum will prepare graduates to practice, and provide patient care in a variety of settings.”
Assistant Dean Dr. Lois A. Garland-Patterson introduced the attending dignitaries, and led the students in reciting the Pledge of Professionalism.
