** In the UK, Australia and other countries the white coat has fallen out of vogue for doctors. Scrubs may still be worn depending on the specialty, but the most common dress code is business casual or business suits, depending on seniority and personal preference; paediatricians often dress even less formally so as not to intimidate young patients. Neckties have been banned from hospital wards for hygiene and safety reasons; [[BowtiesAreCool bowties]] are apparently in a bit of a grey area, not that any self-respecting physician wants to deal with all the ''Series/DoctorWho'' jokes.

* In ''VideoGame/Overwatch'', while Mercy doesn't wear a white coat in-game, she does have the red cross on her clothing (being Swiss and all), and in her Combat Medic Ziegler skin, has a small white nurse's hat. The Uprising comic also puts her in a white labcoat while testing Genji and Tracer's abilities.

* On ''Franchise/{{Neopets}}'', the Gelert running the Hospital has a correctly-drawn and worn otolaryngologist's mirror--over one eye with an eyehole. Oh, and the rest of this trope fits.

* ''TabletopGames/Warhammer40K'': SpaceMarine Apothecaries wear white PowerArmor and a [[http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/File:Narthecium_schematic.jpg nasty-looking narthecium]] (to pry open dead Marines' armor and carapace and extract their geneseed. And disembowel enemies while they're at it).

* The ''Film/CarryOn'' series [[ComedyInCasualty skewered the medical profession more than any other]]. In all of them, the nurses, sisters, and matrons wore the uniform of their level and the doctors wore white coats. No mirrors though.

* Doctors in ''SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' wear these. It's probably because there are zero recurring characters, so visual archetypes like this are needed.

* ''LeastICouldDo'': Rayne's brother, Eric, wears a lab coat, not to show his intent to heal, but to attract women with his profession. Lampshaded hilariously when he removes it and hides it while walking past a car accident with an injured victim.
