No there isn't but you shouldn't bring the profession into disrepute.

like can doctors get piercings and dress like a goth maybe??
Yes, both are fine.

A word that the GMC likes to use to basically say "you are bringing the reputation of the doctoring professional down".

Definition of disrepute: the state of being held in low esteem by the public.

oh sorry! it wasnt my intention to bring down the profession.
the thing is that im in year 11 and i plan to study medicine in uni however im in a very difficult situation like im in a quite controlled environment if you know what i mean... and um, im not really allowed to wear the clothes that i like. I really love goth and punk outfits but my parents disapprove of it because they believe a doctor should dress or be that 'way'

No no, I don't mean you now! I just meant a doctor can't do things out of work that will bring the reputation of the profession down, usually something illegal e.g. walking around town naked (as an extreme example) :rofl:

There are definitely doctors who have piercings and doctors who are goths.

No, doctors can dress how they like outside of work. Should avoid getting any visible tattoos though.

Yes. Doctors do have greater scrutiny for the things they do outside of work though.

Curious if doctors can be outwardly political in public especially if they have a large following or recognised by some in the clinical setting?

Interestingly, yes they can. Many BMA doctors are known Labour supporters and have been revealed as such by newspapers before (especially during the junior doctor strikes).

Remember, the current Irish Taoiseach was a junior doctor (trained in Ireland obviously!) who eventually specialised and qualified as a GP, and now (or at least, for now!) he's the head of state. Pretty sure there are similar (not as senior) British politicians who trained as doctors.
