Would You Trust A Doctor Dressed Like This?

A new study from the Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery came out recently and let’s just say… it wasn’t received well. The study aimed to identify “clearly unprofessional content” shared on social media by young vascular surgeons, such as HIPAA violations and criminal activity. Unfortunately, the study’s 3 male investigators also looked for “potentially unprofessional content” which included doctors posting photos holding alcoholic beverages and “provocative posing in bikinis/swimwear”. I was outraged by the gender bias in this study holding female doctors to a double standard, essentially saying if you’re a doctor or a woman in medicine you don’t get to enjoy legal activities such as having a glass of wine or taking a photo at the beach. I wasn’t alone, as the medical community on twitter came together with the hashtag #medbikini to denounce this study, and just the other day it was actually retracted by the journal. While that’s definitely a win, we need to continue to empower our medical professionals to live normal lives without fear of being authentic on social media, as it’s better for our mental health and truly helps us connect better with our patients.

  • What really gets me about this study, too, is the inherent double standard of it all. Besides the fact that you have three grown men stalking women's social media accounts, telling them what they should and shouldn't be wearing (which is highly inappropriate!) you have the double standard of it being perfectly acceptable for male doctors to wear only swim trunks, but it not being okay for female doctors to wear bikinis! Talk about being controlling over women's bodies! It's the people who did this study that have the issues, not the female doctors exercising their right to wear whatever they want!

  • I just wanted to say all of this is true. Sometimes indirect communication is also the only way to get people to listen, too. People need to have knowledge of other options. Also, the humanity and flawed part shows. I've always noticed it through this channel, and I also agree that treating doctors as perfect saints, or that they should be that way, is the wrong thing to do. However, when people are vulnerable, they are also more likely to be perfectionistic about people's behaviors. That means medical vulnerabilities leave them open. While I do see the risk and problems that you can easily encounter with this channel (some very valid as well), unfortunately some of that risk needs to be taken and is absolutely necessary in order to help others to take part in responsibility in their own health. Spreading free knowledge is what makes humans grow better as individuals. Just be careful about the media. It can really get to your head. Don't let popularity and excessive acceptance from the masses make you lose touch with them. I'm sure it won't be too bad because you're a doctor who seems to actually care. But there can be the occasional big bumps in life.

  • As a patient, I want a diagnosis. And then I want to g.t.f.o. If my doctor wants to sit butt naked in a nudist colony snorting coke off of a hookers derriere before drinking a beer funnel, and then post it on social media, I. Dont. Care. As long as they can diagnose what is wrong with me, their personal life is none of my business.

  • Seeing a doctor or nurse wear something other than scrubs in a hospital setting I would question their decision making, as there is no telling what fluids may get on them throughout the day, however, what doctors or nurses wear outside of work is not any of my business, and I would want whatever care I can get, as soon as I can get it if I was injured.

  • A doctor has a very stressful and busy lives, and yes they should be professional while working and at work, but doctors have bodies and lives outside of the hospital, they should be allowed to wear what they want outside of the hospital and out of there professional lives. Let them wear a swim suit.

  • As a veteran, there were certain things we could not post. But it was pretty understandable why not to post those things. There was never a study, that would be ridiculous. If we broke the rule, we were told not to and told to take it down immediately. No harm (for the most part) no foul.

  • So what, do those people think that at the end of a Dr's day they should be hung up in the closet and taken out the next morning? Oh no, don't act like a human being that happens to be highly educated. No you have to be what a small number of narrow minded individuals believe you need to be in order to be a doctor. Despite what they think doctors cannot and should not be replaced with robots. Which is pretty much what those small minded individuals are trying to convince us of. Oh no don't go out and have a glass of wine with your dinner, don't go swimming at the beach (but if you must you need to be completely covered from head to toe!), oh and don't participate in conversations that others may not like. I'm going to end my already long comment now because I'm struggling not to type how I really feel. Which spoiler alert would contain ALOT of swears and insults.

  • I don't understand this people. What they would wear on the beach? A formal suit? Clothes have they time and space and while you would NOT be correct being a doctor and using a swimsuit during operation (because of hygiene issues. Blood can get everywhere) you are ALSO NOT correct to expect doctors using scrubs on the beach (Just think of the tan lines). And for the feminist that will probably say they can wear anything anywhere, just imagine being being attended by a male doctor in a speedo, which is basically swimming briefs with even less coverage when some bikinis. Uniformes like white coats exist for the reason to identify and, in this case, make patients trust easier on professionals wearing them.

And it's totally ridiculous to ban a person in pretty much any profession from talking about politics on their own accounts because guess what? Politics have everything to do with our every day lives and jobs, that's interwoven into the fabric of our society and we all play a part, these issues aren't something that exist in a separate bubble that we can pretend have nothing to do with us. I've seen people in a vast array of professions have their social media accounts checked up on and questioned because they talked about things like social justice on twitter/facebook. Nobody has any right to try to control what people do outside of work on their own time. Human beings have every right to opinions about issues that involve all of us, whether we want to acknowledge it or not. People SHOULD be speaking out if something is wrong or unjust.
