Creighton Students Hold Professionalism Ceremony
The Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions will hold a “Professionalism Ceremony” at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 8, at St. John’s Church on the Creighton campus.
The ceremony will welcome 110 new pharmacy students, 31 occupational therapy student, and 57 physical therapy students to campus.
The ceremony signifies to students the importance of professionalism in all they do and emphasizes their responsibility to their chosen professions as they progress through their academic programs.
“I believe, as a health care professional, there is no greater reward than the satisfaction of helping another by providing the absolute best care possible,” said Dean Chris Bradberry, Pharm.D.
The 2006 class hails from 44 states. Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, California, Hawaii, Illinois and Colorado provide the most students.
Women outnumber men with female students accounting for about 58 percent of the new on-campus pharmacy students, 64 percent of the occupational therapy students, and 97 percent of the physical therapy students.
An additional 55 students are enrolled in Creighton’s distance-based pharmacy program; they participated in a professionalism ceremony on Aug. 2.
