Dress Policy

Students are expected to refer to the CSIF from their clinical site for the site-specific dress code. If there is no CSIF, or if the dress code information is not included on the CSIF, students are instructed to refer to Grant Wood's famous painting American Gothic, depicting a conservative Iowa couple (one as the patient and one as the CI), and dress to build a positive professional relationship with them.

If the clinical site has concerns related to the student's appearance, they are expected to inform the student of what would be acceptable; the site may then consider providing more dress code specifics in the CSIF.

Students, CCEs, or CIs with questions, may check with the ACCEs for further clarification.
