Pharmacy Students Presented with White Coats

The Fairleigh Dickinson University School of Pharmacy held its inaugural White Coat Ceremony on Friday, August 24, 2012. The ceremony marks the beginning of the students' studies in pharmacy.

Pictured above is a group of new pharmacy students receiving their white coats. Below, the students take the Oath of a Pharmacist.

Just the second school of pharmacy in New Jersey and the first to open in the state in over 120 years, it employs an innovative learning model in which students not only earn a doctorate in pharmacy, but also have the opportunity to earn a master's in an additional field in order to better prepare for emerging jobs in the field of healthcare.

The class is comprised of approximate 85 students from four countries (U.S., Russia, India, and Nigeria), and from 14 states, plus the District of Columbia. For more information on the School of Pharmacy, visit
