I have whined and digressed way too much! The point of all this is...want to see what I have in my “clinical school-wardrobe” now? It’s not really that special, but for me it’s a super step up! I will obviously tweak the looks depending on what the NHS trust dress code is at the time, but in general: nothing below the elbows (so no watches around the wrist), no jeans, and clothes with offensive slogans^_^! It’s probably a good thing that we are required to dress smartly and look somewhat professional (whether or not we have truly learnt the communication skills for it yet!
I love vests! You’ve probably noticed that I’m trying to sneak black jeans into the hospital...well sometimes you can get away with it. I still prefer them to slacks...old habits die hard.
This is more casual, and works when all I have to do is attend seminars and teaching sessions etc. Could work in the ward with the slightly-less nitpicky nurses and doctors.
I should also probably also blog about the shoes I have hunted down for clinical school...but that will be another post, for another month! (I really should get off my lazy bum and blog more too!)
Hopefully the next hospital I am at has the white tunic rule for medical students. I could get away with so much more when you throw a white tunic over everything. Maybe I should keep an eye out for how well people can work it and blog about that! I have spent too much money on clinic-clothes this year, I think I shall join Zen in her shopping ban...
