The White Coat 🥼
Since the late 1800s physicians have been wearing white coats. But how did the trend start? And why a white coat? Why not a white jumpsuit, or white overalls?
The trend started as a symbol of cleanliness. If you’ve ever seen any archaic pictures of doctors in the 1800s you’ll see them operating in their street clothes, sleeves soaked in bodily fluids. This was not a good look for profession that would eventually celebrate cleanliness.
Thankfully, the white coat came to the rescue and is now a staple in the wardrobe of any physician. This one by @medelita_gram is my favorite.

Here’s a few fun facts about me for anyone who is new.
1️⃣I am from Damascus, Syria but I was born & raised in California. However I spent 10+ years living in Chicago.
2️⃣My husband @usimgesq & I have been married for almost 10yrs! We met through our mutual friends through our local mosque 🕌 in Chicago.
3️⃣ We have 3 kids— 👦🏻👦🏼👧🏻
2 boys & a girl, aged 7, 6 and my girl just turned 3 this weekend!
4️⃣ I love any & all forms of art. 🎨 I even went on to minor in art history in college.
5️⃣I graduated high school at the age of 16 by skipping the 4th grade & finishing high school in 3 yrs.
6️⃣I went to undergrad at University California in Santa Barbara & majored in biology.
7️⃣I paid for all my own schooling. Fortunately, I was able to keep my GPA high enough & was granted a full on paid regents scholarship for my entire college education.
8️⃣During my time in college I solidified my decision to pursue medicine after volunteering w an organization called Adventures in Caring. I would dress up as ‘Raggedy Ann’ 🎈 visiting terminally ill patients, trying to offer them a bit of joy during an otherwise dark time. In many ways it was this experience that really fueled my desire to pursue medicine.
9️⃣I went to med school in Chicago at Rush University, (where I also would end up doing my residency). When I first started med school I was set on becoming a pediatrician. 👶🏻 However, when I rotated in ophthalmology 👁 I was enamored with everything about it. That artistically inclined, detail-oriented side of me was given a completely new channel of expression.
1️⃣0️⃣During med school I was active on student council & I founded the Ophthalmology interest group 👁
1️⃣1️⃣I currently work as a comprehensive ophthalmologist at a large HMO in Southern California. 👩⚕️ The most common surgeries I perform are cataract, pterygium & eyelid surgery. I also treat a variety of disease, mostly retinal/glaucoma w injections 💉& lasers. I absolutely love my job!
1️⃣2️⃣Lastly, because it just wouldn’t be a complete list about me without the mention of my intense love of all things chocolate. 🍫
Anything else you’d like to know? Ask away.
Ps. I ❤️ you for reading up to here
It me. 🙋🏻♂️🤷🏼♂️
