PA Studies students don white coats
Students in the Physician Assistant Studies Class of 2025 slipped on their white coats in a ceremony symbolizing their transition from classroom learning to clinical rotations.
The ceremony, held May 15, featured comments from School of Health Professions Dean David Shelledy, PhD, RRT, FAARC, FASAHP, and Associate Program Director and Associate Chair of the Department of Physician Assistant Studies Steven A. “Tony” Skaggs, PhD, MPS, PA-C.
The white coat represents a duty to patients, Skaggs told the students.
