  • Celebrating the Service of Dr. Selwyn Rogers
Selwyn O. Rogers, Jr.

June 20, 2012

The HMS associate professor and Brigham and Women’s surgeon reflects on his career on the eve of departure for Temple.

This month, DCP is bidding adieu to longtime friend of the office, Dr. Selwyn O. Rogers, Jr., MD, MPH, FACS. Rogers will be leaving his position as associate professor of surgery at HMS and chief of the Division of Trauma, Burn and Surgical Critical Care at Brigham and Women’s Hospital for a new opportunity at Temple University, where he will serve as professor and chair of the Department of Surgery at Temple University School of Medicine, and surgeon-in-chief of Temple University Health System.

Rogers, who graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1991, was awarded the Harold Amos Faculty Diversity Award from Harvard Medical School in 2010 for his outstanding mentorship, for promoting an environment of inclusiveness, and for his health disparities research and passion for improving the quality and equality of surgical care. He has also been recognized by Brigham and Women’s Hospital for his work as an educator and leader, earning the Matson Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Dennis Thomson Leadership and Compassionate Care Award.

We asked Dr. Rogers to reflect on his time at HMS, and his career thus far. You can listen to clips from that interview by following the links below.

Dr. Rogers’ contributions to the Harvard Medical School community will continue to be felt even after his departure. We wish him well as he embarks on the next stage of his career.

Listen to Dr. Selwyn Rogers:
