White Coat ceremony for second class held Sept. 4 at Renaissance Convention Center

Posted: 09/04/2012
On September 4, 2012, the Class of 2015 celebrated a momentous occasion with family, friends and members of the University and pharmacy communities at the White Coat Ceremony held at the Renaissance Convention Center in Schaumburg.

Mark Loafman, MD of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Department of Family and Community Medicine, was the keynote speaker and focused on interprofessional practice and the need for “high performing teams” in healthcare that include significant roles for pharmacists.

Students were assisted by their faculty advisors in putting on their white coats and a University lapel pin was given by Schaumburg Campus Provost Douglas Knerr.  A welcome was provided by Professional Council member Yash Patel of CVS/Caremark and the Oath of the Pharmacist was led by Kristie Bruneman of Supervalu.
