Background and Objectives: The attitudes to the professional dress code as well as the level of adherence to this code are of utmost importance in clinical settings. This study aimed to investigate the students' attitudes and adherence regarding the professional dress code at Kerman University of Medical Sciences, Kerman, Iran.
Methods: This descriptive analytical study was conducted on 368 students of medical sciences at Kerman University of Medical Sciences, Kerman, Iran. The data were collected using two researcher-made questionnaires asking for students' attitudes and adherence regarding the professional dress code. The data analysis was performed in SPSS software (version 18) through descriptive statistics and analytic tests.
Results: According to the results of this study, the mean scores of female and male students' attitudes and adherence regarding professional dress code were obtained at 74.04±13.49 and 74.12±10.77, respectively. Moreover, this result indicates that students have positive attitudes toward professional dress code. In addition, the participants believed that 75% of the other students dress professionally.
Conclusion: Given the positive attitudes of participants regarding professional attire, and the fact that 75% of the other students adhere to this issue, it is necessary to maintain and reinforce the positive attitudes of the students to encourage the professional attire values and impress the views of patients who refer to the health care centers.
