Promoting the Health of Women Throughout Their Lives

The mission of the Department of Women’s Health is to improve the health of women through high-quality and comprehensive clinical care, exceptional educational programs, and investigation and discovery.

The department promotes health and equality in care delivery for women, regardless of their ability to pay. It has a unique focus on better health outcomes and recognizes the impact that community-based resources and organizations have in promoting health. Improving access to those resources and integrating services across the community to better serve and keep women healthy is an essential component of the team’s work.

Areas of Focus

In collaboration with partners at UT Health Austin, Ascension Seton, CommUnity Care Health Centers and others, the Department of Women’s Health is committed to delivering value-based programs with a person- and family-centered approach. Areas of clinical focus include general obstetrics and gynecology, gynecologic oncology, maternal-fetal medicine, urogynecology and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, family planning and reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

Medical students and residents are trained in traditional areas of obstetrics and gynecology and subspecialty care. The department also infuses non-traditional curricula designed to develop the “whole” physician. This includes value-based care, population health, research and the study of humanities. Its ultimate goal is to prepare learners to lead and deliver the highest quality patient-centered care for women of all ages and backgrounds.

The Department of Women’s Health has a broad-based research program devoted to advancing knowledge and accelerating improvements in patient care through the use of data science, clinical and translational research. The department encourages collaborative and interdisciplinary research across The University of Texas at Austin for both faculty and learners.

Graduate Medical Education

The department is home to the Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship and the Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency.
