About Thu Tran, MD
Dr. Thu Tran was born in South Vietnam. At just fourteen years of age, her family was among the last Vietnamese who left Saigon from the roof of the American Embassy, several hours before South Vietnam was taken over by the communists.
Fluent in Vietnamese, Dr. Tran went to Ohio State University as an undergrad and majored in French Literature and Microbiology. She spent a year in the MBA program at Ohio State before deciding she truly wanted to become a physician. She entered OSU Medical school and upon graduation, completed her OBGYN residency at Greater Baltimore Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland. She has been with Capital Women’s Care since 1991 and has repeatedly been in the Washingtonian’s “Top Docs” and in the Washington Consumer’s Checkbook. She was selected to be the 2015 recipient of the Outstanding Physician Award by Montgomery County Medical Society in Maryland.
Dr. Tran is also very active in her community, devoting at least one day per week volunteering at Mobile Med. An avid runner, she loves to exercise. She has completed three marathons, a triathlon, and in recent years has also done several long-distance cycling races (completing her first 100-mile ride for charity in 2012). She also has been in weight training for two decades. She loves to read, especially nonfiction books and poetry. She is a big fan of NPR and loves to cook.
Dr. Tran is married with one son and strongly believes that life is a journey of such limited time that we all should cherish each moment and try to experience as many things, and play as many roles, as we can.
