The Medina College School of Pharmacy held its White Coat Ceremony last August 4, 2012 at Plaza Beatriz Hotel. White Coat Ceremony is a wonderful and meaningful tradition in which the school of pharmacy present to their student pharmacists a white coat, the symbol of clinical service and care. The ceremony started with an invocation led by the first year students followed by a welcome address by the Dean of Pharmacy, Mrs. Carolina Balberan, RPh.
Then a message from the guest speaker, Mrs. Leilani Bugas-Barrera, RPh, Dean of Pharmacy at Lanao School of Science and Technology was heard. She thoroughly explained the significance of White Coat Ceremony in taking on the responsibility of being professional pharmacists in the near future.
In lieu of the guest speaker’s message, Dr. Danilo Daniel, PhD, Vice President for Academic Affairs of Medina College gave an inspirational talk to encourage the students to pursue their dream. He stressed that any person should never give up in following his/her dream.
So for my dear students, always bear in mind what Mrs. Barrera and Dr. Daniel told you to become full-pledged pharmacists. You have to value hard work in order for you to reap its sweet fruit.
Congratulations, students! You are now embarking to a higher level in your pursuant on becoming registered pharmacists!
