On Saturday, September 10, 2016, NYU Steinhardt’s Physical Therapy Department held their 3rd Annual Inauguration and White Coat Ceremony, welcoming new professional and post-professional students to NYU PT. The event was held at the beautiful Rosenthal Pavilion, located in the Kimmel Center at 60 Washington Square South.
The event began with a procession of current students followed by newly enrolled students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy for Practicing Physical Therapists, Master of Arts, and Doctor of Physical Therapy programs. The event continued with a welcome by Department Chair and Associate Professor Dr. Mitchell Batavia, a school-wide welcome from Dr. Dominic Brewer, Dean of the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, and a faculty welcome by Clinical Assistant Professor Dr. Kevin Weaver.
Students received their white coats, took their oath, and proudly celebrated with friends, family, faculty, and Department staff during a post-ceremony reception, complete with a toast to their new journey here at NYU Steinhardt.
