Pharmacy White Coat Campaign

The College of Pharmacy White Coat Ceremony at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is a rite of passage marking students’ transition into the second year of the PharmD program.

The ceremony symbolizes the responsibility, professionalism and commitment that is expected of pharmacy professionals. This event is a milestone in a pharmacy student’s career, and receiving their first white coat is a special memory that is shared with faculty, alumni, peers and family.

In celebration of this significant event, we invite you to consider making a gift to support our rising second-year students.

A gift of $45 will support one student’s white coat. While making your gift, please leave a note of advice or encouragement to a student. It will be shared with a student for the ceremony.

Thank you in advance from the excited, grateful Pharmacy student who will be proudly wearing his or her white coat.

For more information about the College of Pharmacy or for assistance with making your gift, please contact the UT Health Science Center Office of Advancement at (901) 448-5516 or by email to
