White Coat Ceremony
At the White Coat ceremony, students are welcomed to the chiropractic profession by the
Logan University administration and faculty. Students are congratulated on their achievement
of being selected as chiropractic students and are informed of their commitment as doctors in
training to become proficient in the science, art and philosophy of chiropractic as well as the
human aspect of being a doctor, especially the obligation of caring for their patients.
With the vast amount of scientific and technical data the students are about to be immersed in,
it is essential that they do not lose sight of the core objective of becoming a doctor – to do good
for the health of the people they serve. The White Coat ceremony symbolizes the students’
pledge to diligently pursue their chiropractic education and training from that day forward to as
long as they treat patients, to put the interest of their patients before their own, to respect and
value their fellow students as colleagues as well as those who have taught them, and to behave
well and honorably throughout their careers, always striving to be worthy of the privilege of
being a doctor.
