Christopher Peter Bellaire

Christopher is a Marine Corps veteran and graduating MD candidate at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Christopher graduated from Princeton University’s School of Public and International Affairs in 2011. He served as an intelligence officer in the Marine Corps for four years, with deployments to Japan and the southern Philippines.

Following his service in the Marines, Christopher attended Columbia University’s post-baccalaureate pre-medical program before starting medical school at Mount Sinai. Christopher is committed to advocating for veterans’ health in his medical training and future career as a physician, and he hopes to increase awareness within the medical community about how military service can affect veterans’ physical and mental health later in life.

Christopher is married to his college sweetheart, Genevieve, and they welcomed their first child, Ryan, in March 2023. He matched at Georgetown's orthopedic surgery residency program in Washington, DC, where he will start this summer. Christopher would like to thank his family, friends, and the many faculty members and residents who supported his medical education at Mount Sinai. Christopher is especially grateful for Mount Sinai and its Institutional Partnership with the US Military, which enabled him to pursue a career in medicine after the military.
