BBC: Doctors now finishing at US medical schools are seeing their graduation dates moved forward in the calendar and are quickly being drafted into the battle against the coronavirus pandemic before the ink on their diplomas is dry.

With his white coat freshly pressed and his webcam poised, Patrick Lowe was ready for his graduation from medical school.

On Zoom, he recited his class' personalised version of the Hippocratic Oath. And in lieu of receiving his physical diploma from the University of Massachusetts, he shook his wife's hand and gave his six-month old son, Jack, a hug.

"It's been a bit of whirlwind," he told the BBC. "It's all pretty surreal, but also exciting."

The Covid-19 outbreak meant that a traditional graduation ceremony was out of the question, but the University of Massachusetts wanted to ensure that the class of 2020 was able to commemorate their achievement.

As a result, the university conferred 135 medical degrees in an online event streamed online for friends and family to watch.
