Im not a medical student but I did go on a ward round once and was told off by the consultant for wearing a t shirt and jeans with trainers, so Id say avoid the black trainers and wear dress shoes

ecolier might know?

I think trainers aren't uncommon for people to wear with scrubs in hospitals but, I might be wrong. Do you have a tutor who organises the placements whom you could ask about dress code for placements?

If you can't easily see they are trainers it'd probably be fine. Especially if its a ward type environment with lots of moving around, rather than sitting in a clinic. You'd probably be in a minority if you did it though.

I think there's a bit of regional variation too, with London being more formal. So I hear.

Well yeah - you wore jeans and a t-shirt to a professional environment - of course he said something. Don't think the problem was your lack of dress shoes there!

Personally I wouldn't mind - especially if you will be wearing scrubs but as said it depends on the department / hospital.

:lol: of course you would, I would tell you off too!

Unless you are there as a visitor, why would you be wearing casual clothes on a work experience (I assume this is what it was)? You are expected to dress professional as a medical student.

I wouldn’t on day one but then gage based on how nice your firm is/what they wear - you do hear about consultants raging over trainers. It’s much harder to go ‘too formal’ than too casual so if in doubt dress up?

On placement today the reg had some lovely red converse and matching spotty socks
