More than 300 ATSU students confirmed their professional commitment at the annual white coat and pinning ceremony at the Mesa Arts Center’s Ikeda Theater on July 19 in Mesa, Ariz.
The Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health’s class of 2014, the School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona’s class of 2014, and the Arizona School of Health Sciences physician assistant (PA) program’s class of 2012 were presented white coats in three separate ceremonies. The PA class of 2011 participated in a pinning ceremony, representing the completion of a didactic year of study and entry into the clinical phase of the program.
Clyde Evans, Ph.D., CE Consulting, ATSU Board of Trustees, presented the keynote address “On Entering Hogwarts: Why You’re Never the Same After Your White Coat” for all three ceremonies.
