Dr. Carol Senkler completed her training in General Pediatrics at Columbia University’s Children’s Hospital of New York in the spring of 2009. She is thrilled to join Dr. Sonia Gidwani at Our Kids MD, the premier pediatric practice of the Upper West Side. Together they provide a medical home for kids and their families to access personalized, compassionate, knowledgeable medical care twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.
Dr. Senkler obtained her Bachelor of Science in Neurobiology at the University of Maryland Honors Program in College Park, MD. She earned both an athletic and academic scholarship to attend the University while competing as a member of the Maryland Terrapin Field Hockey team that achieved great success as the 1999 National Champions, and four time ACC champions. Once completing her undergraduate studies, she matriculated at Vanderbilt University’s School of Medicine in Nashville, TN where she earned a Doctorate of Medicine.
After completing three years of rigorous Pediatric residency training, she now holds faculty positions at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital as well as Mount Sinai Hospital. Her love of athletics has translated into a special interest in pediatric sports medicine, keeping children active and healthy in mind and body through sports. She also has a special interest in newborn medicine, and developmental pediatrics.
