Basic Head-To-Toe Wardrobe For Female Doctors And Clinicians

Just because you often have to wear a uniform during work, doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish while also professional. Here is a great standard outfit for women working in healthcare, which you can either use by itself or as an outfit template that you inject more of your own personal style into later on.

Underscrub shirt

This is a little different than your average undershirt because it is designed to fit comfortably under scrubs without restricting movement, all while keeping you cool and dry. The performance fabric ensures you’ll stay warm in frigid hospital hallways, and cool when you step out into the sun.

Fitted scrubs

Scrubs are, of course, the foundation to most (not all) work wardrobes for those who work in healthcare. If so, it’s probably well past time to throw out your shabby old scrubs and upgrade to a nicer quality set. If you already have invested in a high-quality set of scrubs, good for you!

Shop fitted scrubs.


Whether you’re digital or analog, you can make your outfit your own with touches of personal style such as a functional and fashionable wristwatch. This is the most sensible accessory, since it does serve a purpose in addition to looking cute!

Walking shoes or clogs

If you’re on your feet all day at work, save yourself from a world of pain and do some research about what kind of shoes you should be wearing to avoid a myriad of foot and back problems. We recommend these clogs from Sanita, which is known for producing super high-quality handmade orthopedic clogs.

Professional lab coat

Finish off your professional outfit with a tailored lab coat. Many brands now offer polished styles designed specifically for a woman’s body, which will ensure that you don’t have a boxy silhouette. Today’s options for women’s lab coats is quite large, with a selection of flattering styles for different body types.

Hospitals Can Boost Physician Morale With A Better Uniform

Physician burnout rates are on the rise, and integrated health systems across the country are trying to find ways to keep their physicians, and therefore their patients, happy. One of the easiest ways a hospital can keep their staff more satisfied with their job is by offering an on-the-job perk such as a new uniform program.

Investing in the professional appearance of your physicians tells them that you have confidence in their skills. A sharp and polished appearance also gives patients more trust in their physicians. This ultimately does translate to more satisfied patients, happier doctors, and better health outcomes.

The two main considerations for a new uniform program for your brand or hospital are appearance and function.


According to, “Employees care about how they look. An attractive uniform can greatly enhance self-esteem, which in turn improves attitude. One extremely important detail is the fit. Baggy or tight garments can make employees feel self-conscious and less confident in interacting with customers. Other important details include color, fabric, and style, which should reflect the company brand.”


This consideration is especially important in a highly demanding role of a physician. Lab coats and scrubs must be able to stand up to wear and tear, and they must satisfy the demands of the job. This includes being made with highly functional performance fabrics, having plenty of pockets for storage, and a design that doesn’t limit movement.

Most Difficult Stains To Remove From Your Clothes (And What To Do About It)

Even if you don’t work in healthcare, stains happen. Whether someone bumps into you while holding a cup of coffee, or you spill your glass of red wine, there are a multitude of ways that life can ruin your clothes.

If you work in healthcare, you’ll probably experience more stains than the rest of us! Here are the most stubborn stains and how to get rid of them.

  1. Blood
    One of the toughest stains to remove is blood – not a good look on an otherwise pristine white lab coat. Rinse the stain immediately under cold water, let it soak in a mix of water and dish soap, and use a stain remover like OxyClean before laundering.
  2. Ink
    If you’ve gone your whole medical career without having a pen explode in your pocket, you are the exception to the rule. Ink stains are unsurprisingly extremely difficult to remove, but most water-based inks should come out in the wash with some stain remover. If you aren’t dealing with performance fabric, some recommend that nail polish remover can help dissolve the stain, but I don’t recommend you do this on any nice clothes that have technologic features imbued in the fabric.
  3. Coffee
    Another unsurprising yet stubborn stain is coffee, the lifeblood of so many working in healthcare. Rinse the stain in cold water as soon as possible – the longer you wait, the more time the stain has to set in. Rub soap on it, but not too hard, and apply stain remover before laundering.
  4. Wine
    It’s a vice of many, and it’s hard to get out of your clothes if you’re a fan of the reds! Experts suggest that to remove a wine stain, soak the garment in a mixture of water, dish soap and white vinegar. Rinse and apply an enzyme-based stain remover before washing.

A good rule of thumb to remember whenever dealing with a stain, is to avoid hot temperatures as this will cause the stain to set into your clothes.


Men’s Scrubs Pants With A Relaxed Fit

Scrubs are pretty comfortable when you think about it, at least compared to the stiff suits and neckties that professionals must wear in so many other industries. Anything with a drawstring or elastic waistband tends to be pretty comfortable, but these scrubs pants for men have been highly rated by almost every single purchaser.

The Modern Fit Men’s Scrubs Pants have a dual elastic/drawstring waistband, ensuring that they are neither too tight or too loose, but just right. They also come with a built-in fly zipper, an ideal feature for anyone under a time crunch.

The material is much softer than what you’ve probably come to expect from your scrubs. The inside of the material feels about as soft as flannel PJ pants, rather than the scratchy thin fabric that you’ll find in cheaper scrubs.

A lot of men seem to have appreciation for the fit, which is where these scrubs pants truly stand out. With the perfect length and cut, the fit actually resemble a pair of chinos or nice pants more than a pair of slouchy sweats.

A New And Improved Fit For Two Popular Women’s Lab Coats

Last week popular designer lab coat company Medelita released the new versions of two of its most popular lab coats for women.

The new versions of the Callia and Miranda B. lab coats include the same features as the old ones, but with an improved fit.

The Callia has been upgraded to fit better as well. With the new fit, this is now a true slim-fit lab coat, meaning it is slightly more fitted than other traditional styles, while still professional and not overly fitted.

This lab coat has very feminine scalloped lapels and patch pockets that can fit a small tablet and anything else you may need to carry. It also features a back waist belt with two buttons, making it stylish and classic.
