This is a guide that may be used by student leadership of SAVMA veterinary colleges to initiate a conversation on conducting a White Coat and/or Graduation Ceremony online for veterinary students scheduled to receive their White Coats or Graduate during the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and health of students, families, faculty, and staff are paramount during this incredibly difficult and precarious time. However, we feel that it is important to take time to recognize the time, dedication, and emotional strength it took for students to reach these points in their veterinary careers. We hope that providing an easy toolkit that explains how this can be done effectively will encourage administrations to host a virtual event to honor students.
