Class of 2023 gathers for annual White Coat Ceremony

The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy Pharm.D. Class of 2023.

Incoming first year student pharmacists gathered in the LBJ Auditorium on August 24 for the annual College of Pharmacy White Coat Ceremony. P1s were cloaked by faculty and pharmacist family members.

The keynote address came from alumnus Dr. Rannon Ching (Pharm.D., ’14). The Pharmacist In Charge at Tarrytown Pharmacy spoke to the incoming Pharm.D. students. Dean M. Lynn Crismon also presented Dr. Ching with this year’s Distinguished Young Alumnus Award, since he was unable to attend the Alumni Reception and Awards Ceremony.

After the Class of 2023 was cloaked by faculty and pharmacist family members, they recited the Oath of the Pharmacist and participated in a rousing rendition of “The Eyes of Texas.”

Congratulations to the entire Class of 2023 on the start of their professional journey to becoming premier pharmacists and health care providers.
