You don't need to practice alone. How can we help you?
We created Pink Coat, MD as two very caring, compassionate female friends who first met at Brown University nearly 20 years ago. Despite our separate paths in medicine — Tammie becoming a pediatric hematologist/oncologist, Luisa an adult endocrinologist — we shared the same struggles faced by women physicians in clinical practice and we wanted to change this status quo.
”To promote the personal and professional success and well-being of every woman doctor.OUR PURPOSE
Our mission is to engage and energize female doctors to best care for themselves and others through radical collaborations and an empowering community that elevates one to lead with grace and courage.
We’ve partnered with leading experts in a variety of fields such as business, law, social sciences, technology, mindfulness, to create a high-quality, curated program of evidence-based resources, including professional coaching, mindfulness self-compassion, peer support, parenting, family and relationship support, to help female doctors do their best work and live their best lives!
Our vision is to improve families, communities and organizations around the world by increasing the number of strong, joyful, self-compassionate female doctors practicing medicine, serving as leaders and revolutionizing medical culture.

Luisa Duran, MD
Dr. Luisa Duran grew up in the San Francisco, Bay Area where she practices as a board-certified endocrinologist. She strongly believes helping women doctors thrive in clinical practice creates a healthier, more equal, more joyful world! She understands the added challenges unique to women doctors given her decade of clinical experience in various high-pressure healthcare environments across the United States. Speaking nationally about “real-world” clinical practice, she realized many women doctors share these challenges. After learning of her friend's crisis because of severe physician burnout AND her young daughter wants to “become a doctor,” Luisa was propelled to collaborate with industry experts to provide solutions. A graduate from Brown University where she earned her bachelor’s and medical degree, she developed expertise in diabetes at the Joslin Diabetes Center with Harvard Medical School. She completed her internal medicine residency training at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, affiliate of Stanford University, and her fellowship in endocrinology, nutrition, and metabolism at the University of Washington in Seattle. She is grateful for her incredibly supportive husband, family, friends and her three young children who inspire her everyday to make the world a better place!
Luisa is the co-author of the bestselling How to Thrive as a Woman Physician together with Tammie.
