Invest in Our Future Physical Therapists
This spring, the USF School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences will officially honor the Class of 2025 by presenting each student with their very first white coat, welcoming them to the physical therapy profession and affirming their oath of professionalism. Today, we urge you to invest in these students' dreams by making a gift to sponsor their first white coat.
The Commitment to the Profession Ceremony has become a critical and meaningful annual tradition. It shows our students that from the very beginning of their Moving Lives Forward journey, a grateful community has invested in their success and they are not alone as they enter a life dedicated to healing and improving others.
Through the generosity of donors like you, our incoming physical therapy students are gifted with their first white coats. By making your commitment before March 23, you will help us ensure that every member of the Class of 2025 benefits from this selfless act of philanthropy.
“I chose to enter the physical therapy profession because of my passion for movement and the power it has to help improve patients’ quality of life," shares Whitney Herd, Class of 2025 Vice President. "The support of our generous donors has helped me and my classmates grow as professionals and encourages us to continue to strive for excellence to be the best providers we can for our future patients."
If you have any questions about the Commitment to the Profession Ceremony, please contact Beth Ahmedic at 813-362-5338 or .
USF Faculty and Staff: You can give online through this HerdFunder site, or complete this payroll deduction form (fund #250454, DPT White Coat) and email it to .
White coat sponsors who make their gift on or before March 23 will be recognized in the Commitment to the Profession Ceremony program.
