The UCSF/SFSU Graduate Program in Physical Therapy is pleased to invite the family and friends of the entering Doctor of Physical Therapy Class of 2021 to the seventh annual White Coat Ceremony! The event will be held on Friday, October 5, at 6pm in Cole Hall, located in the Medical Sciences Building on the UCSF Parnassus campus. This momentous occasion signifies the entrance into the physical therapy profession and transition into clinical studies. During the ceremony, students will be presented with a white coat, the symbol for clinical care and service, and together as a class will recite the American Physical Therapy Association's Oath for Physical Therapists, affirming their commitment to physical therapy and patient care. A reception will immediately follow the ceremony.

Please communicate with your student any special accommodation requests no later than September 7. Disabled seating must be reserved in advanced so we can make the appropriate arrangements for you prior to your arrival.
