Campbellsville University's School of Chiropractic will conduct its first White Coat Ceremony at the Conover Education Center, 974 University Drive, Harrodsburg, at 2pmET Friday, March 18, 2022.

The White Coat ceremony will mark the official entry of students into the School of Chiropractic. The first cohort of students will be on track to graduate in 2025. The chiropractic center is the first in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the only one within a 300-mile radius.

The state-of-the-art, 45,000-square foot facility opened to students in January.

"The ceremony signifies the start of a student's journey to become a Doctor of Chiropractic," Dr. Trevor Foshang, dean of chiropractic education, said. "Chiropractic and medical schools across the United States commemorate students' entry into the health care professions by presenting them with their first white coat -- a short version of the long coat typically worn after graduation."

After receiving their white coat, students will then recite an oath of commitment.

"The Clinical White Coat Ceremony is a proud tradition throughout healthcare," Dr. Dennis Short, assistant vice president for chiropractic and dean of chiropractic operations, said. "It represents the student's metamorphosis into a doctor.
