As human beings, we are hard-wired for connection. Some of the toughest experiences we face as female physicians in medicine are feelings of isolation, stress, anxiety, and guilt. We feel like we are the only ones going through this experience, and we feel alone.
At Pink Coat, MD we know this is a shared human experience. We know that the power of community, camaraderie and friendship is limitless, when we come together with other women physicians who understand our experience.
Doctors who have participated in peer support programs have appreciated the feeling of being heard in the context of not being judged, and of receiving practical and helpful information from their respected colleagues.
