About

Our Purpose

To promote the professional and personal success and well-being of every woman physician.

Our journey

Pink Coat, MD was created by two Ivy-League friends, Dr. Tammie Chang and Dr. Luisa Duran, who first met as Freshmen at Brown University nearly 20 years ago. Both incredibly compassionate souls called to serve others as physicians, they dedicated their lives to becoming the very best physicians only to discover they would suffer silently from physician burnout and consider leaving medicine far too soon. Determined not to give up on their childhood dreams, they discovered a path towards empowerment and wellness through personal growth, leadership development, and most importantly, community. After learning that countless other women physicians are struggling in silence, they created Pink Coat, MD to enable all women physicians to thrive!

Our Vision
