Experienced and highly skilled, Dr. Virginie Drummond provides compassionate care
RWG is proud to welcome a new Austin obgyn to our team. Dr. Virginie Drummond completed her undergraduate education, medical degree and residency training at the University of Texas. After her residency, she worked in Kansas and New York City before returning to Austin.
Dr. Virginie Drummond has outstanding clinical skills and surgical expertise
To satisfy both her love of science and language, our Austin obgyn received a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry and a Bachelor of Arts from the College of Language Arts at the University of Texas at Austin. She moved to Dallas for medical school at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
Her residency training continued in Dallas at the University of Texas Southwestern/Parkland Memorial Hospital, which is one of the busiest hospitals in the country. During her residency, Dr. Virginie Drummond received the Peggy J. Whalley Medicus Award from the medical school faculty. This prestigious award honors the graduating resident each year who the faculty believes exemplifies the qualities of an ideal resident. Faculty members praised Dr. Drummond, citing her “masterful surgical skills” and noting that she was “among the most talented residents” they had trained.
A passion for both the clinical and surgical aspects of obgyn
When asked why she chose obgyn as a specialty, Dr. Virginie Drummond said, “I like both the clinical and surgical aspects of obgyn care. I thought it was a good 50/50 division of time between the two.” She particularly enjoys performing minimally invasive and robotic surgery to help solve patients’ problems and improve their quality of life. State-of-the-art minimally invasive surgeries provide patients with a faster recovery and fewer complications than traditional, open surgery.
Her residency training at Parkland Memorial Hospital included caring for many high-risk pregnancies, and our Austin obgyn continues to enjoy working with these patients, as well as women with routine pregnancies.
Dr. Virginie Drummond enjoys travel and languages
Fluent in Spanish and French, Dr. Virginie Drummond enjoys learning new languages. A United States citizen who was born in France, she loves to explore new international destinations. She is married and lives in the Austin area.
