I finished my undergraduate degree from a public school having no required school uniforms. That was University of the Philippines Mindanao. Even attending classes with only pairs of slippers on, were allowed in school. And as far as I could remember, only in chemistry laboratories we were required to wear closed shoes for our own protection.
So when I entered medical school, wearing of required dresses are yet new to me since I wasn’t used to it. And even taking care of those plain white dresses are truly a strange thing to do for me. Believe it or not, I now have three sets of medical school uniforms since the first year I entered the school. Just imagine every year I have a new set of uniforms. That’s pretty a waste of clothing materials since my old uniforms were just dumped in my locker.
This year, I have no plans to add new sets of uniforms but the school required us to have one for our hospital duties.

l am thinking of availing for discount medical uniforms’ coupons or any vouchers. But I doubt if we were allowed to use one in school since, as far as I’ve known and as what were shared to us, only the school will provide us the uniforms, we were not allowed to purchase medical uniforms from other shops and stores.
I just hope that those new sets of medical uniforms will just be cheap and affordable for us.
