FMU PA’s gather for White Coat ceremony

FMU PA’s gather for White Coat ceremony

The inaugural class of Francis Marion University’s Physician Assistant program gathered at Chapman Auditorium Friday evening for a White Coat ceremony.

The ceremony is a tradition for PA students as they near the end of the didactic portion of their education. Following more than a year of non-stop classroom work, they receive white coats as they prepare to head into the field for their clinical rotations. FMU’s 32-person class is set to graduate next winter.

 The program, which launched in the fall of 2016, is now accepting applications for its second class in August 2018. The application period is open through March 1, 2018.
