White Coat Ceremony
A cherished tradition for future health care professionals, the White Coat Ceremony marks the beginning of a Logan DC student’s chiropractic career. Students will receive their white lab coats at the ceremony. Friends and family are invited to attend. When possible, the ceremony will also be live-streamed online for those who can’t attend in person.
Orientation for Logan’s online-only programs is provided through our online learning management system, Canvas. The orientation program will be made available to admitted students approximately two months before your program begins. Orientation must be completed by the Friday before the start of your program. We recommend you complete it earlier, as your class registration will not be approved until you’ve completed the orientation.
