Students at the PA White Coat Ceremony

EVMS recently welcomed more than 80 members of the Physician Assistant, MPA program Class of 2025.

On Friday, Jan. 13, class members participated in a White Coat Ceremony, pictured above.  

During the ceremony, Dr. Alfred Abuhamad, President, Provost and Dean of the School of Medicine, praised the students for answering a call to service.  

“You are a critical component of the solution to the healthcare workforce shortage,” he said during the event. “You chose a school that is rooted in the community and dedicated to the idea that everyone deserves compassionate care from highly skilled providers.”
