White Coat Cleaning

White Coats Not So White?

Upon employment, your program will provide you with three white lab coats for use during the duration of training.  A worn-out or damaged coat may be exchanged at no cost to the house officer on a one-for-one basis, as needed.

Your program is responsible for the facilitation of laundering the white coats and you should not be paying out-of-pocket for this expense.  Each program should have a mechanism in place for the timely exchange of coats.  To help facilitate this process, the Lab Coat Room located at B2001 in the Taubman Center has daily hours, Monday - Friday, 8 am to 4 pm with breaks scheduled between 10:00 - 10:15 am, 11:30 am - noon, and 1:45 - 2 pm.

As you know, regularly cleaned lab coats aid in controlling the spread of certain germs.
