Dr. Erin Ambardekar joined Children’s Medical Center in March 2009. Dr. Erin grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She then migrated south to Chicago to Northwestern University, where she received her undergraduate and medical degrees, as well as a masters’ degree in public health.
She met her Iowa-grown husband in medical school, and they moved cross-country to Denver and the University of Colorado for their respective residency trainings — hers in pediatrics, his in internal medicine/cardiology. She was the proud recipient of the first annual Jules Amer Continuity Practice Award — a true reflection of her love for primary care pediatrics and a keen forecast of her career-to-come.
After completion of residency and the birth of their daughter, she served as a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Emergency Medicine in The Children’s Hospital Network of Care. Her son was born just prior to joining CMC, and she is thrilled for the privilege of both practicing medicine and raising two kids.
Dr. Erin’s clinical interests include breastfeeding/lactation support, asthma, congenital heart disease, adolescent medicine, and brainstorming through parenting dilemmas. Now that her children are getting a little older, she enjoys running, biking, swimming, and exploring the Rocky Mountains as a family.
