Health Professions White Coat Campaign

The College of Health Professions White Coat Ceremony at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is a rite of passage where students make a pledge of professionalism, marking one of the biggest days of their academic career.

As Physical Therapy, Medical Laboratory Science, Occupational Therapy, and Master of Cytopathology students prepare for their white coat ceremony, they are responsible for providing the funds to purchase their own white coats, which pulls them away from their studies and adds yet another financial commitment to their growing burden.

We invite you to sponsor a UTHSC College of Health Professions White Coat to support our students.

A gift of $100 will support one student’s white coat and help offset the cost of the ceremony. While making your gift, please leave a note of advice or encouragement, which will be shared with a student at the ceremony.
