Of obvious and grave importance: how do folks dress in medical school?
On class days during the first 2 years, most folks are jeans and t-shirt types. We even had some PJ bottom folks in our class. Occasionally (like when everything else is dirty), folks get fancy. Some…
I am smack in the middle of this weird transition from preclinical attire to clinical attire!!
I usually wore jeans or sundresses or whatever the weather mandated to lecture during the year. We had to do “dress” days occasionally when we were seeing patients or for clinical exams, etc. But mostly it was a pretty casual atmosphere.
My ladies and I even had a pajama party once where we all wore our most ridiculous pajama bottoms to lecture. Batman PJs for the win.
But now I’m having to dress business causal which means I actually had to find dress pants that fit!! I’m still trying to find someone who makes dress shirts in itty-bitty sizes (always a challenge).
I’m constantly playing the “is this too short/too revealing/too flashy/too colorful/too uncomfortable/etc” game in the morning now!
When it’s warm I wear shorts and dresses and skirts and generally look cute. When it’s cold and my soul is dead I wear leggings and boots and giant shirts (floral leggings are the best thing ever) and generally look cute. When I’m at home studying I wear pajamas basically all the time because I’m sitting on my bum for 8 hours and generally do not look cute.
For clinic/standardized patients I usually wear dresses and skirts. I too struggle with if things are too short because my torso is legit almost as long as my legs (I am the best model for any abdominal physical or ultrasound exam, I learned). I also have a giant shoulder tattoo piece. The solution? VINTAGE DRESSES. Anything before 1990, pretty much. They are cut longer and the necklines are ‘modest’ enough to cover my tattoo. Plus they look super cute with a white coat and comfy wedges or flats. Shoe inserts are the best thing that ever happened to me. Sometimes a little hemming or removing of the shoulder pads or wearing a slip underneath is necessary, but vintage dresses are where it’s at for clinic wear, ladies. :)
