Various classmates studied with me, including those with tattoos, dreadlocks, piercings. It is expected that older teachers did not really approve of this appearance, sometimes making remarks and barbs towards students. Some could also read a whole lecture "tyzhevrach". As if I became a doctor = I stopped being a living person. However, I did not hear about problems in tests and exams related exclusively to appearance.

But it seems to me everywhere among that generation. The patient and the neighbor of the same age will say the same. That is, without relativity to a medical school.

As a teacher, the way a student expresses himself does not bother me at all. His dress code must correspond to the accepted order at the department: a dressing gown, a hat, a change of shoes. I'm more worried about what's in his head, not on his skin.

After all, this student will eventually work with patients (possibly) and build a career. Will his professionalism be enough for older patients to forgive him "Rock Star" on the phalanges?

Differently. Of course, in medical universities with a "history" such as the IM Sechenov Moscow State Medical University, old teachers, of whom there are many in some departments, consider this unacceptable. As well as piercings, for example. However, as far as practice, there are enough tattooed doctors.
