Rebecca Rogers, M.D.

UT Health Austin Care Team Member

Harvard University


Residency, Obstetrics and Gynecology
University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center

Fellowship, Urogynecology
University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center


Rebecca Rogers came to Dell Medical School from the University of New Mexico, where she was a Regent’s Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, chief of the Division of Urogynecology and vice chair for research. She began her career as a math teacher in the Peace Corps in Swaziland, Africa. From there, she was trained in experiential learning as an assistant instructor for Outward Bound.

Rogers received her medical degree from Harvard University and completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology and a fellowship in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery at the University of New Mexico. After her training, Rogers joined the faculty at the University of New Mexico, where she established the ACGME-accredited Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship program and the Division of Urogynecology.

Under her leadership, the Division of Urogynecology brought together a multispecialty group of physicians, midwives, physical therapists, nurses and research and administrative staffers to bring high-quality care to patients with pelvic floor disorders. The division is recognized as a center for excellence and was recognized twice by the National Association for Continence as a “Continence Care Champion.”

Rogers’ research interests include the development of validated outcome measures in women with pelvic floor disorders as well as determining the impact of childbirth on pelvic floor function. She created and validated the only condition-specific measure of sexual function for women with pelvic floor dysfunction. She has been funded through the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development with a U10 center grant, “The Pelvic Floor Disorders Network,” and a R01 “Pelvic Floor Changes in Pregnancy.” She is active in the mentorship of junior clinician scientists, both within and outside of her institution.
