Dress Code

<< Back to Other Policies — MD Program

While Washington University School of Medicine does not have a written dress code, it is expected that all students will dress in attire that is appropriate for a professional.

Appropriate attire in the clinical setting is especially important, not only because the student will be part of the team representing the medical profession to patients, but also because the student will be representing the School of Medicine.

Appropriate attire for male students on the clinical services includes man-tailored shirt and tie, trousers or slacks and closed toe shoes. Appropriate attire for female students includes a dress, a blouse, tailored shirt or sweater, slacks or skirt, and closed-toe shoes. Both men and women should wear a short white jacket with the appropriate identification card clearly visible.
