WhiteCoatOathMaster’s and doctoral students in the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) reaffirmed their commitment to their work and their promise to uphold the highest professional standards during the second annual Graduate Student Oath Ceremony on Thursday, Aug. 24.

During the event, held at The Stella Hotel in Bryan, students received their white laboratory coat and an engraved magnetic CVM name tag before reciting the graduate student oath as a group.

Developed last year, the oath incorporates the Aggie core values of Excellence, Integrity, Leadership, Loyalty, Respect, and Selfless Service with values of professionalism through ethical behavior and scholarship in biomedical research.

Current Master of Science thesis and PhD students who were unable to participate last year also joined in the festivities, which included a reception and dinner.

The embroidered laboratory coat symbolizes students’ official entry into training as a laboratory scientist, and the name tag fosters recognition of their unique identity and contributions to the CVM research enterprise.
