    extremely stupid ques

    Advertisements



    hi guys,
    sory, i feel exteremely ignorant and dumb for asking this but i m just curious. and i've heard there is no such thing as a stupid question. so here goes... would u think having a tiny nose ring would have any effect on how they perceive you in your interview? i wound't think so since that wouldn't effect how well you study or how your patient care is. then again who knows...is ross a coservative school? hahah again, sory just wondering and paranoid. as stupid as this topic is, i would really appreciate a response from someone thanks

    extremely stupid ques extremely stupid ques

    Ummmmm..... i have 2 tatoos, the times I've been interviewed, i have'nt showed them....

    I guess ALL medical Schools, carib or not.. are old fashioned to a certain degree... life is full of stereotypes... and you having a ring has no indication of how good/bad you'll treat someone.. but.. better safe than sorry.. unless it comes from a religious tradition or you have a very GOOD explanation on why you're wearing it.. I would not show up with it to an interview...... just play it safe untill you get accepted, then be yourself!

    conservative

    medicien is a conservative business. to be honest, take it out...and lose it. you will have no use for it in the future.

    I don't think loosing the ring is right

    Everybody is different. I as a patient would love to see a doc have a nose ring, makes me feel a bit more comfortable. Maybe becuase i'm younger?

    the ring

    you would never see this doc,as nobody woudl ever hire him! like I said, medicien is VERY conservative,a nd the bosses, they are not currently young, like you may be.

    i wear a nose ring

    as do several females in our 5th semester class. it is very small and hardly noticeable. no one has said anything to me about it being unprofessional, nor have they asked me to remove it. i have worn it during my entire education at ross, and i was even a T.A. for two semesters while in dominica.

    just use your discretion....

    class is one thing....

    but when you are in a hospital it is different...very different. I ahve seen people sent home over jewelry, hair color, hair style, as well as clothing. when you think of how you should look, remember that conservative is the style,a nd not just a little...but VERY conservative.

    I agree with Jim. Body art and body jewelry often are not regarded as acceptable in the health care setting. There is also the problem of the confused or belligerent patient how decides to use it as a weapon against you. It serves as a distraction, and in many cases the patient or family member will be fixated on it rather than listening to what you are trying to say. The other problem is, it may make you look younger that what you are, and unfortunately, the public regards young as DUMB. They want mature experienced professionals.

    dress code

    Speaking of looking credible,
    A time ago, a tie was considered "professional", because everybody was in a jacket and tie, even to goto the movies. Corporations went business casual in the 90s. I hope some day medicine can go that way too.
