CODE OF CONDUCT

PROFESSIONAL DRESS CODE STANDARDS:

 

It is important to portray a professional image. A clinician with inappropriate dress, grooming or conduct can damage the patient's confidence in the quality of their care, sometimes even resulting in a delay in the restoration of health.

 

Haircuts, hairstyling, and personal grooming need to be neat, conservative and inconspicuous. Grooming and style should be practical and allow one's duties to be performed without embarrassment or inconvenience

 

 

DRESS:

  • Uniform wear is appropriate on campus and in class.

 

  • Clinical /Lab Dress: Aprons for all clinical assignments, any class that is held in a clinical facility and in any class where patients are present.
