- Students are expected to maintain a proper professional appearance when they are on the medical campus.
- Students should wear their photo identification badge at all times while on the medical campus.
- Please adhere to the following guidelines when attending classes in the lecture halls (applicable to first and second year students and senior students during Internship 101).
– Do not wear running shorts or extremely tight shorts. Longer shorts, Capristyle pants, and blue jeans are perfectly acceptable for the classroom.
– For men, a polo shirt with a collar is preferred. A tee shirt is acceptable provided it is clean and does not contain any offensive language or picture.
– For women, “tube tops,” “halter tops,” deep set necklines, “see-through” blouses, and very short, tight skirts should not be worn to class. Shirts and blouses must extend to the waistband of your slacks or shorts. Bare midriffs are not acceptable. Please be conscious of the “fit” of your clothes when you are in different positions, e.g., standing vs. leaning over.
– Baseball caps and sunglasses should not be worn in the classroom.
– Avoid extremes of hairstyles (e.g., “spiked hair,” multicolored or bizarrecolored), make-up, and piercings. Facial hair must be neatly groomed
– IN SHORT, BE MODEST AND PROFESSIONAL
- In the laboratories, OSHA regulations prohibit open-toed shoes. For purposes of safety, you must wear closed-toe shoes.
- When you participate in any clinical activity and anticipate patient contact, you must dress in a very professional manner. Men should wear a shirt, tie, slacks (not jeans), belt, socks, and hard-soled shoes (i.e., no tennis shoes). Women should wear comparable attire. Your white laboratory coat should be clean, pressed, and in good repair.
- When engaged in patient-care related activities, you should not chew gum.
