In patient care and research, Rosenstein's interests include quality improvement in obstetrics, reducing unnecessary cesareans, and improving outcomes for women who experience obstetric hemorrhage or high blood pressure disorders during pregnancy. Her professional goals include expanding patient access to comprehensive reproductive care and particularly to vaginal birth after a past cesarean.

At UCSF, she completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, and a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine.
