We know your struggle.
As physicians, we strive to be wonderful healers but we are especially vulnerable to anxiety, stress overload, unhealthy self-criticism, self-judgments, and compassion fatigue because of our competitive training and emotionally exhausting work environments.
Having compassion for others starts with self care and having compassion for ourselves.
Kristin Neff, PhD, a pioneering researcher on self-compassion, has shown that self-compassion includes self-kindness, a sense of common humanity (we are not alone in our imperfections), and mindfulness. Both mindfulness and self-compassion involve an attitude of curiosity and non-judgment toward our unique experiences.
Research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, lower levels of anxiety and depression, healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and more rewarding relationships. Self-compassion is a skill that can be learned and cultivated by anyone through Mindful Self-Compassion training.
This course was co-developed by Kristin Neff, PhD, and Christopher Germer, PhD, a leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy. Since 2010, Mindful Self-Compassion has been taught to over 50,000 people world-wide.

See what our physician members are saying:
“I joined Pink Coat, MD to support the founders whom I respect for so many reasons, and I did not realize that I would expland my personal support system so vastly by joining. The other women in medicine I got to meet during the sessions are now a circle of professional and personal inspirations and support. And the meditation and compassionate care strategies I learned have helped me support myself better – to be at peace, to feel less pain, to love more. I look forward to more sessions to expand my skills in leadership as well. I would want all my colleagues in medicine to have access to what Pink Coat, MD is offering!”
– Bonnie W. Lau, MD, PhD
“My participation in Pink Coat, MD has opened up my eyes to gender inequality and implicit bias in medicine that I have long felt and suspected but have not explicitly discussed before. Pink Coat, MD has inspired me to help change that double standard, and it has empowered me to start seeking small achievable changes within my own organization. The support of having an organization like Pink Coat, MD, behind me, and a network of women physicians beside me, has made me comfortable to start speaking up and confident to start pursuing leadership roles myself. I’m so grateful for the resources and inspiration from Pink Coat, MD.”
– Jennifer Barkeley, MD
“It’s hard to know where to start to describe how much I have learned from and grown through my involvement with Pink Coat, MD. I learned throughout my training that you had to have support in many forms, but once I became an attending I found I still needed that support. There are new challenges and changes that take place after you make the transition, and Pink Coat, MD really gives you the tools at any stage of training to deal with our very difficult but rewarding field. Having a community of similarly experienced women of all life stages in medicine really provides the support that I feel so many would benefit from. I’m grateful and plan to keep learning and growing with this awesome group.”
– Sarah Walker, MD
“Pink Coat, MD has been a ray of light in a very dark year. Pink Coat gave me a path and energy to achieve so many goals!”
– Special Annual Intentions Event Participant
“It’s comforting to know I am not alone as a female physician.”
