White Coat Ceremony

Donning the white coat is a symbol of the pharmacy student joining the profession. Each year, students coming into The Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences undergraduate programs attend the White Coat Ceremony, take the Pledge of Professionalism and the Code of Ethics, and are welcomed into the profession by industry representatives, family and friends.


Please note that the White Coat & Awards Ceremony for the Class of 2024 has been postponed from September 2020 until January 2021.

The Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences will evaluate the state of the event closer to its new date based on the University of Alberta's and Alberta Health Services's health and safety rules and recommendations at the time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
