    Interviews are starting soon for an internship at a hospital that I'm hoping to get (88 clinical-experience hours packed into a month). I'm not sure what would be appropriate to wear, though. Very formal? Less formal? Do I dare ask...? Both undergrads and high school students are applying.

    Thanks for any help >.>

    Oh, yeah. I'm female. :p

      I wore a skirt with a nice s/s sweater to mine... nothing like a suit for med school but along the same lines as what I would wear to church on Sunday.

      for a guy I would recommend slacks and a oxford with a tie.

        Suits, suits, suits!! Men or women! You can not go wrong with that. No need to get too "creative", people.

        Interviewing for residency is just like interviewing for any professional job. A guy should never wear a tie without a jacket to a job interview unless he is applying for a position at the local Supermarket store.

          Well... it's not for residency or anything. It's the equivalent of a hospital volunteer position. I mean, if it was an interview for med school or residency it would be no question. That's not what I'm talking about.

            Honestly, you can't go wrong with a suit.

            If you really don't want to do that, wear a slim, knee-length skirt with a professional long sleeve button-down shirt, hose, and low heels or nice flats. So basically a skirt suit without the jacket.

            But really, what does it hurt to just wear the jacket with it? :)

              Well it's hard to say what you should wear without knowing your three sizes... j/k!:D


              But I think for a position like this, a full (female)suit is too much. Maybe not the jacket and just the shirt?
