LUBBOCK, Texas -

The 2021 class of physicians from the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center received their white coats.

As one of the most visible symbols of a healthcare provider, Dean Stephen Berk with the TTU School of Medicine said it's a commitment to their future patients.

"Since we start seeing patients very early in the first year, it's really critical to make that commitment right now," Berk said, "that you're going to be a doctor and you're going to take all the responsibilities that are required of a physician."

The ceremony celebrated 180 first year medical students from 68 different universities across the country.
