UW School of Pharmacy White Coat Ceremony Symbolizes Passage into Professional Practice

UW School of Pharmacy White Coat Ceremony.The University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy’s annual White Coat Ceremony took place March 29 in the UW College of Arts and Sciences auditorium.

The White Coat Ceremony symbolizes passage into the initial stages of the profession of pharmacy practice and represents a contract for excellence in providing compassionate patient care. The event also highlights the importance of scientific scholarship, and emphasizes the highest principles of moral and ethical conduct.

School of Pharmacy Dean Kem Krueger spoke to the students about the symbolic importance of their coats and the excitement of starting their first experiential rotations this summer. He also praised the Class of 2024 for “beginning the professional pharmacy program during extraordinary times and demonstrating perseverance during online learning.”

Members of the Class of 2024 will finish their introductory pharmacy practice experiences (IPPE) this summer, completing introductory hospital and community rotations throughout Wyoming and Colorado.

IPPEs are an opportunity for students to apply information learned from their didactic coursework into the real world of pharmacy practice, Krueger says. Rotations also offer the chance to engage in and improve upon communication skills with patients and other health care professionals.

Four students interacting while using Zoom.UW College of Health Sciences Educators and Students Share Multi-Disciplined Virtual IPE Experience

Interprofessional Education (IPE) is defined as when two or more students from different disciplines learn together as part of their professional development. Such collaborative efforts help to ensure that students pursuing careers in the health sciences will know and understand how to interact with a multi-disciplined team of health care professionals.

Educators from the Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing, UW School of Pharmacy, Division of Social Work and the Wyoming-WWAMI Medical Education program in the University of Wyoming College of Health Sciences came together on March 26, 2021, to provide a total of 73 students, a mix from across each of their disciplines, a first-time ‘virtual’ interprofessional education experience.

Using Zoom technology, students were able to interact with each other and their faculty members remotely to discuss the topic of treatment options for patients dealing with issues related to opioid use disorder and recovery.

Faculty members included Kym Codallos, Assistant Lecturer with the Division of Social Work; Antoinette Brown, Coordinator of Experiential Education and Lauren Rachel Biehle-Gory, Clinical Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice, both with the UW School of Pharmacy; Esther Gilman-Kehrer, Clinical Assistant Professor with the School of Nursing, and Yvette Haeberle, MD, Clinical Curriculum Director with the Wyoming-WWAMI Medical Education program.

“This is the 5th annual College of Health Sciences interprofessional opioid-use event, but the first one held over Zoom,” said Dr. Yvette Haeberle.
