It’s a Scrub Party
WHAT: The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Medicine Class of 2018 will be presented their first scrubs at the annual Scrub Party.
WHEN: 6:30 p.m. Saturday (Aug. 2)
WHERE: TTUHSC Courtyard, 3601 Fourth St.
EVENT: The TTUHSC Office of Alumni Relations hosts the event, which brings students, families, faculty and administration together to welcome a new class of future colleagues. The tradition provides each student entering medical school with their first set of green scrubs. The color green represents the quest for the green velvet hood the students will receive once they earn the title of Doctor of Medicine.
Priscilla Carter-Snodgrass, M.D., (School of Medicine Class of 1988) and her
husband, Brad Snodgrass, M.D., (School of Medicine Class of 1988) began the
tradition by hosting the annual event at their home and presenting green scrubs
to first-year medical students. The Office of Alumni Relations and the School
of Medicine are proud to continue the tradition.
