Best Lab Coat Length for Medical Students

Posted by Shay Bex on

The white coat significance was created on tradition. 

The white coat stands for 'professionalism and integrity'. While 97% of medical schools have a white coat ceremony, there are no set rules in the healthcare system regarding white coat length. Typically, medical students wear white coats at hip length or an “examination” coat. 

After completion of medical school when they become an intern, they wear a longer coat reaching toward their knees. Seniority plays a key factor on who gets to wear the longer coats so it's easier to distinguish medical students from residents. A great lab coat for female medical students is the 29” Meta Pro Consultation Tri-Blend Labcoat (Meta style 824). It has two deep loading pockets and a three button closure
