GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - The University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences has graduated its newest class of doctors.

61 graduates received their Doctor of Medicine degree this afternoon.

They have all completed four years of medical education to earn that M.D. degree, two of those years were spent with practicing physicians in clinics and hospitals across the state.

The program is recognized as the national leader in producing family physicians.

Graduates say they're excited to see years of hard work paying off.

"Really kind of hard to believe, pretty surreal. It's exciting but scary at the same time because having M.D. behind your name, there's a lot of responsibilities with that. But I'm excited for the most part," graduate James Miles said.

This was the 37th class to earn the Doctor of Medicine degree from the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
