I agree with Richard. I have been practicing gynecology and gyn surgery for 30 years. I no longer dress in professional street wear in the office. I wear scrubs every day and wash them as soon as I get home. This is another way the COVID pandemic has changed in our profession.

A good rule of thumb is always about dressing to impress. Generally, Physicians wear professional attire underneath a lab coat, however depending on the organization different requirements may exist. Generally, hospitals or larger medical practices will have a detailed dress code outlining specifics for both men and women, while smaller offices or private practices may vary from a strict, professional dress code expectation. For men, usually a button down with dress slacks, sometimes requiring a tie as well. For women, conservative blouses with dress slacks or skirts, or a professional dress may accepted under the lab coat. For either, it may simply be scrubs under the coat. Considering that humans make a first impression in under three seconds, and that impression will affect trust factors, it's important that MDs look to follow existing guidelines for their practice; and even when dressing down for something like a casual Friday, maintaining a professional appearance is key.

I guess it depends on if it is an office or hospital environment. Being clean and neat is always a plus. Scrubs are preferred in the world we are in today.

The days of the professionally dressed physician are over in the era of COVID. We all change into scrubs as soon as we get the the hospital and change out of them at the end of the day.
