Clinical Faculty White Coat Guidelines

UT Medicine Logo In support of the University's branding effort and to initiate a consistent, professional image, the School of Medicine (SOM) requires that all new clinical faculty white coats display the five-color hexagon UT Medicine logo. Future white coats will be embroidered with the new logo on the right and will include the faculty name and department on the left. The Office of the Medical Dean has created this website which includes specific guidelines and links on obtaining plain white coats, direct embroidery specifications, embroidery sources, etc. We recommend that all faculty obtain at least one new coat as soon as possible for use in any promotional opportunities.

A plain white coat should be obtained through any white coat vendor and the coat style will be the faculty's personal choice. If ordering coats from Linen Services, the "ID Label only (no patch)" box should be checked, so that no patch is sewn on the coat. Clinical faculty coats should be directly embroidered instead of using the patch. Linen Services will have new coats collared for inventory. The plain white coat(s) should be directly embroidered by one of the approved vendors in the list referenced below. Negotiations regarding bulk pricing and pickup/delivery can be discussed with the vendor. Pre-worn plain white coats must be laundered before sending to the embroidery vendor. As old coats are retired, please return them to Linen Services for proper disposal.

Thank you for support of the new brand representing our School and for helping build and unify our marketing efforts internally and externally. Please contact either Dr. Jan Wilson ( or 7-4433) or Bridget Hendrix ( or 7-4437) with any questions or concerns. Thank you!
