AMSA Follies: What’s With the White Coats?

Random:

  1. The amount of bling/flair/showy shoulder patches/embroidered names and insignia on medical student white coats seem to be inversely correlated with the schools’ ranks. The osteopathic students’ coats are really pimped out. Harvard’s, on the other hand, are some of the dingiest and unremarkable around. Before anyone jumps down my throat, this is an observation, not a judgment.
  2.  

  3. This is a judgment: why do so many students’ white coats (especially the DO schools) feature the embroidered label “student doctor” or “student physician.” I find that sort of thing to be borderline-misleading… it would definitely be considered a moderately unprofessional representation to make at SUMS. Can we all agree to cut it out? Thanks!
