* ''Series/{{House}}'': Dr. House usually averts this; not so much his colleagues. In the early seasons a RunningGag is that House refuses to wear scrubs or the standard white lab coat.

** 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.

The Uprising comic also puts her in a white labcoat while testing Genji and Tracer's abilities.
