A few articles in the news about doctors & dressing:

Forget Scrubs. Washington Post. Realize what you wear makes an impression. And wash those white coats (a lot!)

 

When Young Doctors Strut too much of their Stuff.  I like this opinion piece and agree to limit short skirts and plunging necklines to out of office time. But don't agree that women have to have the 'nerd factor' to be taken seriously. Has anyone ever said that to a man, ever? Women doctors are smart and gorgeous and dressing professionally but well is an easy way to communicate this to their patients. Only dress like a nerd if you WANT to dress like a nerd!

 

How to Dress Professionally as a Young Female Doctor.  I always wear heels, and in my experience I am garnered far more respect when I walk in with heels than in flats. For me, this has to do more with my height than the shoes but if the extra couple of inches help me feel more confident, and my patients feel better about the tough discussion we may need to have,  then I will keep strutting them. But more than anything - be comfortable in what you wear!

 

Scrubs, Suit or Jeans. BMJ Careers. Love this! At my hospital we have color coded name tags to identify role in medicine (doctor, nurse etc) which allows patients to see who we are and also doctors to express themselves. Love this quote from the piece:

Doctors’ choice of dress is a way of expressing what they do and their desire to make patients feel better, says Salter. “It’s also about sharing the fear of illness, as we all do—and that we as doctors know what to do. What we wear must also reflect being different, showing the subtle nuances of each specialism, while at the same time, being like everyone else.
