Ceremonies & Events
NEOMED celebrates the many milestones in our students education while preparing to become a future health care professional. Some of these include:
White Coat Ceremony
White Coat ceremonies celebrate an important milestone in the lives of first-year medicine and pharmacy students, who begin a new chapter in their journey of lifelong learning. White coats are symbolic of the professionalism that is expected of students during medicine and pharmacy school, and as physicians and pharmacists.
This ceremony reaffirms the community’s support of the educational process that prepares future health care professionals for practice. On this day, students pledge their commitment to their professions and to the health of the patients they will serve.
In March, the College of Medicine celebrates with fourth-year medicine students and students across the country as they learn where they will go to receive specialty training in their chosen field.
In April, the College of Pharmacy students receive their match information as part of the nationwide residency match program sponsored and supervised by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
Commencement is an exciting time for graduates from the Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy and Graduate Studies. Graduation from NEOMED represents a major accomplishment in your life and the lives of your families.
