Hah, I'm an Indian, so it's not something they'd have considered - or, indeed, have any control over . It comes down to how we as a culture name our children - so that decides your first name. As Sikhs, most of us share the same middle name - Singh - and my surname... well, nothing any of us could do about that :p:

So, I guess, in the end, it couldn't be helped. Besides, I do my best to live up to my name :p:.

This might sound like a stupid question, but what on earth are we supposed to wear in hospitals and placements? Obviously it's just jeans and tee-shirts for lectures and practicals, but do we have to dress more formally for patient contact?

Your medical school hasn't specified a dress code?

Smart trousers, shirt and tie although some hospitals now ban ties due to infection risk. Do not wear a suit until you are at least a reg!

Some consultants will let you know pretty damn quick if you are wearing inappropriate clothing....!

No. Apart from anything else, they're covered in many hospitals' Infection Control policies - not because they are vectors but because management ***** think that punters associate them with being dirty (or sterile).



EDIT: I win!

No. I've worked at a lot of places which won't let your wear scrubs outside of theatres/maternity/ITU/A&E - again an infection control measure.

so hospital consider it better to wear your own clothes, how exactly does that help with infection control? also at the hospital i volunteer on, the nurses and doctors have to wear NHS uniforms and i have to also.

so what exactly are you sposed to wear in teaching hospitals?

If it were practicable to change contaminated scrubs as you enter and leave important clinical areas then maybe scrubs would be ubiquitous, but at the moment that's not a reality.
A shirt and smart trousers suffice for most clinical areas (I never wear a tie, except for in OSCEs).
I personally would not want to wear a uniform - it's a psychological thing about the loss of professional autonomy (I can't think of other high-powered professions that have uniforms per-say, only traditional clothing).

There's already a thread for UCL medics which might be more appropriate.
My qualifications aren't really relevant - I applied 6 years ago and things were different then. The average offer has changed and the BMAT was introduced after I started. As for work experience, it's enough to know that I evidently what I had done was suitable and that I reflected on it adequately.
