Third Annual White Coat Ceremony Held for DPT Class of 2013

The third annual White Coat Ceremony was held on Saturday, September 11, in the sanctuary at Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church on the Emory University campus. The ceremony marks the student's transition from the study of preclinical to clinical health sciences and also initiates them in physical therapy ethics.

Dr. William Eley, Executive Associate Dean for Medical Education and Student Affairs at Emory University School of Medicine, opened the program with Welcoming Remarks. Richard Nyberg, a physical therapist and Instructor in the Division of Physical Therapy, gave the Keynote Address. The White Coats were presented to the Division of Physical Therapy Class of 2013 by Dr. Zoher Kapasi, Associate Professor and Interim Director, and Jeff Hoder, Assistant Professor, Division of Physical Therapy, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine. Dr. David T. Burke, Professor and Chair, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, provided the Closing Remarks for the program.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, Dr. Zoher Kapasi led the students in a recitation of the APTA “Code of Ethics.” A reception followed the ceremony in the atrium of the Math and Science Building for faculty, students and family who attended the event. The officers from the DPT II class assisted during the ceremony and attended the reception to congratulate the DPT I students.
