About

M. Yvette Williams-Brown, M.D., MMSc, is an associate professor in the Department of Women’s Health and a courtesy associate professor in the Department of Oncology.

Williams-Brown is a board-certified gynecologic oncologist and came to the Dell Medical School from Baylor College of Medicine. There, she served as physician co-champion for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund’s Woman to Woman Program, a unique support program for gynecologic cancer patients. Since joining Dell Med, Yvette has collaborated on several multidisciplinary projects throughout The University of Texas at Austin and was part of a team that reached the 2016 Texas Health Catalyst Program finals.

Having followed an academic career, teaching is very important to her. She currently serves as the gynecologic oncology residency rotation director in the Department of Women’s Health. Both at BCM and now at Dell Med, she has been active in teaching and mentoring medical students, residents and fellows. Williams-Brown has special expertise in gynecologic malignancies, specifically ovarian, uterine cervical and vulvar cancers. She also performs minimally invasive procedures including robotic surgery.

After graduating with honors from Xavier University of Louisiana, she received her medical degree from Tulane School of Medicine in New Orleans. She later completed her residency and fellowship, and earned a master’s degree in medical sciences, at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.

Williams-Brown’s clinical and research interests include cervical cancer, palliative care and health disparities.

Outside of the hospital, she enjoys attending UT Longhorn football games with her husband as well as delighting in the development of her twin boys.
