White Coat Ceremony
Class of 2024
The white coat is the symbol of clinical service and care. At other schools, students only participate in didactic education in the first years of their training. Their white coat ceremony then occurs during their transition to the clinical phase of their education. At UC Davis, you will have the opportunity to work with patients and gain clinical skills in your first year. Therefore, you will take the School of Veterinary Medicine student oath, receive your white coat, and be welcomed into the veterinary profession by Dean Lairmore in this ceremony that begins your professional education.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 14, 2020
The White Coat Ceremony will be held virtually through the School's Facebook page on Friday, August 14, 2020 through a live stream event. Please note that the event will not appear on the Facebook page until 2:55 p.m. The ceremony will begin at 3:00 p.m.
Students are encouraged to dress in business casual attire during the virtual ceremony.
