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 25 years ago. Both first generation Americans and born into immigrant families, Drs. Tammie and Luisa are incredibly compassionate souls who felt called to serve others as physicians from a young age. They dedicated their lives to becoming the very best physicians only to discover they would suffer silently from physician burnout and isolation, and consider leaving medicine far too soon. Determined not to give up on their childhood dreams, they discovered a path toward empowerment and wellness through evidence-based resources like personal growth, leadership development, and most importantly, community. After learning that countless other women physicians were struggling in silence and leaving the medical profession, they created Pink Coat, MD to help women physicians thrive in medicine!

Our Mission

To engage and energize female physicians to best care for themselves and others through professional collaborations and a safe community that help female physicians do their best work and live their best lives!

Our Vision

To improve families, communities, and organizations around the world by increasing the number of strong, joyful, self-compassionate female physicians practicing medicine, serving as leaders and revolutionizing medical culture for the better.

Our values


Act out of compassion


Love who you are and what you do


Stay positive, even during tough times

Elevate others
