Annual Physical Therapy White Coat Ceremony September 27, 2019!

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 2022 to the eighth annual White Coat Ceremony! The event will be held on Friday, September 27, 2019 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 August 30, 2019. Seating for guests with mobility issues must be reserved in advance so that we can make the appropriate arrangements.
