The White Coat Ceremony creates a psychological contract for professionalism and empathy in the practice of medicine from the very start of medical training.  This is symbolized by investing each student with a clinical White Coat, the mantle of the profession.  Please join us as a special guest for this very important ceremony.

The ceremony will be held at St. Francis Xavier College Church (University Frost Campus Map, Building #51) and free parking is available across the street at the Laclede St. Garage on the corner of Laclede and Grand Blvd. 
Drop-off for handicapped individuals is possible at the front of the Church on the corner of Grand Blvd. and Lindell. Transportation carts are also available to shuttle individuals from the parking garage to the church and back.
Families are asked to arrive at the church after 11:45 am.  Thank you! 

For your convenience, the University North Campus map is included as a downloadable pdf file on this website  or at www.slu.edu/campusmap.  

Entering students should get to Xavier Grand Ballroom in the basement of the church by 11:30 am. Individual photos for the class composite/ID badge and a group photo will be taken in your white coat before the ceremony begins.
