KU students made the transition from the student in the medical classroom to the clinician in the medical center.  The transition is commemorated by a traditional event called the white coat ceremony, where the faculty, wearing white coats, drape the student in their own white coat. The students also completed the journey from Physician Assistant student (PAS) to Physician Assistant (PA).  The journey was celebrated at Tree Tops Park in the presence of friends, family, faculty and administration.
