In order to remain compliant with brand guidelines below find protocol for clinical and non-clinical Faculty White-Coat Guidelines.

 

Long School of Medicine
Clinical Faculty White-Coat Guidelines

 

On the right side of the white coat is embroidered the UT Health San Antonio shield logo, utilizing two shades of orange thread with the words UT Health San Antonio in black thread. 

 

On the left side of the coat, the text is centered above the pocket. Do not use a title before the name, such as "Dr." Following the name, place credentials such as MD, PhD or both, when appropriate.  On the second line, centered, should appear the department name. Do not include the word "department" in the department name.  For instance the Department of Surgery would just be Surgery.  This is an example of the embroidery that should appear on the left side of your coat:
Mary A. Jones, MD
Ophthalmology

 

When ordering, please provide Sunshine Medical Uniforms with the following information:
Faculty Name

  • First name
  • Middle initial (use a period following the initial)
  • Last name, (followed by a comma)
  • Credentials (do not use periods within the credentials)

Examples: John W. Smith, MD or Mary A. Jones, MD, PhD

 

Department OR Division Name
Do not use "department of" in the department name.
Do not use "division of" in the division name.
Only one department or division name is embroidered below the faculty member’s name.

 

Placement of faculty member’s name/department:

  • Left chest, above pocket. If space permits, center embroidery within space directly above pocket, allowing a 1/4" margin on each side.
  • Font: Arial block font is used.
  • Font Size: Faculty names should be 1/2” high and department name should be 3/8” high.
  • Case:  Use upper and lower case for the text.
  • Thread color:  Black to match words in logo.

Long School of Medicine
Non-Clinical Faculty White-Coat Guidelines

 

On the right side of the white coat is embroidered the School of Medicine "Academic" logo; the academic logo is comprised of the institutional logo with the added words "School of Medicine" placed at the bottom.

 

 On the left side of the coat, the text is centered above the pocket. Do not use a title, such as "Dr." before the name. Following the name, place credentials such, as PhD or DrPH.  On the second line, centered, should appear the department name. Do not include the word "department" in the department name.  For instance the Department of Cell Systems & Anatomy would just be Cell Systems & Anatomy.  This is an example of the embroidery that should appear on the left side of your coat:

 

Mary A. Jones, PhD
Cell Systems & Anatomy

 

When ordering, please provide Sunshine Medical Uniforms with the following information:
Faculty Name

  • First name
  • Middle initial (use a period following the initial)
  • Last name, (followed by a comma)
  • Credentials (do not use periods within the credentials)

When placing an order for a coat to be embroidered, please specify the version of the logo; Sunshine handles logo protocols for all our schools and the other clinical practices and there are multiple versions of our logo that are utilized. For all non-clinical Long School of Medicine faculty members, please select from the following options, listed in order of what is most preferred:

  • 5. the UT Health San Antonio Long School of Medicine logo;
  • 6. the UT Health San Antonio straightforward institutional logo; or
  • 7. the UT Health San Antonio Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine logo.

The reason that the UT Health San Antonio Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine logo is the least preferred version is the length of the wording of the school name. The number of letters in "Joe R. & Teresa Lozano" added to the number of letters already in the name, Long School of Medicine,  requires a decrease in the point size of the letters and results in greatly diminished readability.  Simply put, the letters need to become much smaller to fit all of them into the prescribed space within the logo and therefore the name of the school becomes much more difficult to read.
