One of the most memorable moments during my vet school journey was receiving my white coat. It signified being one step closer to achieving my lifelong goal of becoming a veterinarian. I always loved seeing the 4th year vet students taking the hospital by storm in their white coats. It was such an awesome feeling finally being able to wear my own white coat on my first day of clinics. But you know another thing that’s fun about white coats? You can personalize them with your own flare. I had been saving lapel pins I collected from conferences or found on Etsy prior to starting clinics to add some flare to my outfit and change them up each day. I want to share my absolute favorite company that has a plethora of inspirational, fun, and medically related lapel pins that are perfect for any medical professional. Here are some of my favorites:
“Instagram Paw Print”— The perfect pin for all you Instagram and animal lovers (SO MOST OF YOU)
“Rod of Asclepius + Rx No Bad Days”— can’t tell by the picture but we are stocked about these two pins that serve as a constant reminder that there are No bad days and a unique take on the Rod of Asclepius that unifies all healthcare fields #OneHealth
“Hip Hip Hooray”— The orthopedic lapel pins are extremely PUNNY. I have all of them and everyone loves them!
