WCVM alumni have a lifelong relationship with their alma mater, and throughout each student’s education, the college provides experiences and opportunities that forge the connection.

One of the first experiences occurs when the first-year class participates in the traditional White Coat Ceremony — the students’ official welcome to the veterinary profession and to the college.

During the ceremony, a representative from the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association presents a personalized white lab coat to each student. As well, every member of the first-year class receives a stethoscope from the provincial veterinary medical association in the student’s home province. 

The WCVM White Coat Ceremony for the Class of 2027 will take place in Saskatoon on Monday, Sept. 25, 2023. Please check back for more details.
