Abstract:

Objective: To identify pharmacy students’ views of professional dress. Methods: During a lecture period focusing on professionalism, first professional year pharmacy students (N=157) observed a fashion show in which second professional year students posed as models dressed in what would be considered “appropriate” and “inappropriate” attire for pharmacists. Students wrote structured reflection papers regarding their thoughts on the appropriateness of each model’s dress/attire. In order to have students think about patients’ perceptions, they also addressed how they believed their parents and grandparents would perceive the appearance of the fashion show participants. Students also were instructed to choose the model that they would trust the most as their pharmacist and explain why. A retrospective analysis of the reflection paper responses will be performed to identify patterns in students’ perceptions of professional dress, including 1) an assessment of students’ perceptions of what was consider appropriate and inappropriate attire, 2) differences in perceptions based on gender, and 3) the most professional model. Results: Evaluation of the students’ reflection papers will determine students’ views of professional and unprofessional dress. Using this information, faculty will be able to provide feedback to students regarding appropriate and inappropriate dress on clinical rotations and in the workplace. Implications: Instilling professional values in pharmacy students during the pharmacy curriculum is a goal of pharmacy faculty. Exposure to specific characteristics of a professional through implementation of a pharmacy fashion show could be an effective method of promoting one aspect of professional socialization to pharmacy students.
