What should you wear to your next medical school or residency interview?
I get asked this question a lot – should I try to stand out or should I wear a more traditional suit and tie? Ladies ask me if a skirt suit or a pants suit is more appropriate and if stockings are necessary.
I believe a picture is worth a thousand words so check out some of the outfits I suggest for both men and women when going on med school and residency pre interview dinners.
No matter what you choose I would suggest not wearing jeans, open toed shoes, or leggings/work-out clothing. Of course there are exception such as programs that explicitly say to wear jeans. No matter what you choose to wear arrive on time, have a positive attitude, and be yourself. Those traits will take you further than your outfit.
