Take both class B's and a set of BDU's. The uniform varies from place to place. At Madigan you could wear whichever one you wanted, but some places have more formal guidelines on work uniforms. For weekend rounds, you can usually wear civvies, but ask just to be sure.
You can get a white coat at the hospital. Yes, they really do give you a long one. I felt like a total imposter wearing it as a med student!
At the Navy hospitals, half the time the Corpsmen are wearing long coats, so as a med student your less of an imposter, at least. If anyone cares, for the Navy the uniform is Khaki, BDUs are not authorized. Summer whites/Dress blues are always OK, no one wears the Officer winter working blue
