Scarlett McKinsey, M.D.

Scarlett McKinsey

I chose the field of neonatology because of my love for basic physiology and because I find it a privilege to work with babies and families during what can be a time of a great deal of stress.  In addition to providing the best possible clinical care to my newborn patients, it is my job to make a difficult experience a little bit easier on the family.

Dr. Scarlett McKinsey is Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medical College and Assistant Attending Pediatrician at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in the Division of Newborn Medicine.    She is instructor-certified in Neonatal Resuscitation.
After majoring in Human Development and completing a Bachelor of Science at Cornell University, she attended the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where she completed her MD.   Dr. McKinsey went on to complete her residency, chief residency and Neonatology Fellowship at Mount Sinai Hospital.
During her time at Mount Sinai, Dr. McKinsey was active in both education and research. Specifically during fellowship, Dr. McKinsey studied the developmental changes of sodium transporters and exchangers in the premature kidney.
