Dr. Medina's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Medina "Dr. Carlos Medina is a native New Yorker who grew up in Hempstead, Long Island. After serving in the U.S. Marine Corps as a machine-gunner he attended Columbia University where he double majored in philosophy and history. Following graduation from Columbia with honors in philosophy, Dr. Medina decided to pursue a medical career and attended the post baccalaureate pre-medical program at Hunter College. Upon successful completion of the program, Dr. Medina was admitted to Cornell University Medical College to the class of 1999; notably, the final class to receive the traditional medical curriculum. In medical school, Dr. Medina developed an interest in urology and with the encouragement of Drs. E. Darracott Vaughan and Dix P. Poppas he received his training in this specialty at the University of Connecticut under Dr. Peter Albertsen. At the University of Connecticut, Dr. Medina rotated in pediatric urology at the famed Connecticut Children's Medical Center and developed a passion for serving children. He followed in his Cornell mentors' footsteps and completed a fellowship in pediatric urology at Children's Hospital of San Diego under the tutelage of internationally regarded and winner of the American Academy of Pediatric Urology Medal, Dr. George W. Kaplan. Dr. Medina then started a successful private practice in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Throughout this entire journey, Drs. Medina and Poppas maintained an ongoing and warm relationship. Four years ago Dr. Medina accepted an offer to practice at the New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College. He is the Director of the Linda and Carl Seaman Pediatric Urodynamic and Voiding Dysfunction Unit within the Institute for Pediatric Urology.
