Sometimes I wonder what exactly is appropriate medical student/doctor attire. This is mainly because when i'm in clinic/ on the wards in my printed trousers or bright coloured top, everyone around me is either in uniform or quite generic muted clothes. Sometimes I even have the boy questioning whether I plan on wearing that dress/skirt/jumper etc to hospital.
I seem to have no concept on what is "suitable". I don't exactly wear low cut tops or short skirts but I suppose it's not the norm to see a doctor in a leopard print dress or a fluorescent green jumper. I would probably find it easier if we were forced to wear scrubs all the time or a suit but each morning I have to find the balance between comfort, practicality and style.
Anyways, I these printed trousers the other day to hospital. I have about 10 pairs now (mostly from H&M) and since I spend 85% of my waking life in hospital, it would be a shame not to ever wear them there. I just finished a rotation on rheumatology and it was the most chilled experience ever. It has definitely gone up on my list of future specialities. They have about 3/4 patients in hospital at a time compared to the 30 in other more intense specialities...easy living!
