Being a student or employee in a health care environment carries many responsibilities, including professional dress and behavior. In recognition of the fact that we are in contact with patients, healthcare professionals and other health science center personnel on a daily basis, it is necessary that students and staff maintain a neat, clean personal appearance at all times. The following guidelines apply to all students and employees in the School of Allied Health Professions. Please note that these are minimum standards and individual programs and departments may have more specific requirements.
Gentlemen should wear:
Ladies should wear:
Collared shirts, knit tops or blouses
Scrub suits may be worn if prescribed by individual departments.
If a lab jacket is required for direct patient care, it should be clean and free of stains.
Blue jeans, shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, tube tops, midriff tops, flip flops, and caps are not acceptable dress at any time. Some exceptions apply to specific laboratory situations where sport dress is required. However, students should not leave the floor in this dress. Personal grooming (including hair, make-up, nails and jewelry) should be consistent with professional presentation.
