Help a medical student to kick start their career with these classic and comfortable cargo pants. Replicating typical scrub pants, this design is slightly more comfortable and features subtle stylish touches. The Cherokees keep to a high-rise fit that secure to the waist with a reinforced drawstring and they have a zip fly for convenience. They also have four nifty pockets for all those doctor gadgets that come with the trade.
What’s great about these pants is that they are available in a large assortment of colors. This means that you will find the right color to match the uniform of the hospital that the grad student gets accepted to. Now they don’t have to wear the plain old generic scrubs but can, instead, be treated to these soft medical pants that have been designed to flatter.

Personalized graduation gifts for med students are often hard to come by – but here we have the perfect solution that won’t break the bank. This cute coffee mug comes standard with a stethoscope print. The stethoscope has been laid out to form the shape of a heart (which makes this an endearing gift). The stand-out feature, however, is that it can be customized to include a name – which is then added below the image.
This Stethoscope Coffee Ceramic Mug is made from quality materials and has been designed so that it is dishwasher and microwave safe (which is great for those busy doctors who are always on the run and have no time clean and end up re-warming their coffee at least a couple of times a day). And if it’s not used for tea or coffee, it would make a great desktop pencil holder too!
