On Campus


Kavisha Patel of Edison, a doctor of physical therapy student at University of the Sciences, Philadelphia, received a white coat at the 12th Annual Physical Therapy White Coat Ceremony on Sept. 10. The White Coat Ceremony is an annual rite of passage for fourth-year students in USciences’ six-year PT program. Patel continues on the path to receiving a doctor of physical therapy degree in May 2019. Donning their white coats, the more than 75 student-physical therapists recited the Oath of a Physical Therapist, a gesture to reinforce their commitment to working with patients compassionately and to enhancing their health and well-being.
