PHILADELPHIA — Samantha Frear, of Factoryville, a doctor of pharmacy student in Philadelphia College of Pharmacy at University of the Sciences, received a white coat at a ceremony Saturday, Sept. 17.

The white coat ceremony is an annual rite of passage for students in their first professional year (third year) of USciences’ six-year pharmacy program, and symbolizes their dedication to the profession of pharmacy and to the care of others.

Frear continues on the path to receiving a doctor of pharmacy degree in May 2020. Donning their white coats, the more than 130 student pharmacists recited the Oath of a Pharmacist, a gesture to reinforce their commitment to working with patients compassionately and to enhancing their health and well-being.
