As a believer in Christ, how can we practice medicine in a way that points to him?
Mark Silvestri, MD, MHS, grew up outside Boston. He graduated cum laude in Government from Harvard College, where he led a large campus political organization, spent a summer at the White House Council of Economic Advisors, and was involved with Cru. He attended medical school at the University of Chicago, where he led the Pritzker Christian Fellowship. He prayed for a specialty that would allow him to minister to patients, and he found this with Obstetrics and Gynecology, where the intimate nature of medical problems opens the door to conversations about social, relational, and religious issues. Mark completed his residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) where he was blessed to have two other Christian men in his residency program with whom he enjoyed regular fellowship. He spent two years as a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholar, researching health policy and health care delivery, and is presently is a Fellow in Hospital Administration at YNHH, training with the leadership of one of the largest hospitals in the country. He is a Clinical Instructor for the Yale School of Medicine and sees patients at a local community health center. Mark and his wife Julie enjoy living in New Haven with their three children. They have been heavily involved in one-on-one youth mentoring, for which Mark was inducted into the Connecticut Mentoring Hall of Fame. They are members of Christian Tabernacle Baptist Church, and recently have helped spearhead Bridges of Hope – a New Haven multi-church partnership aimed at joining the body of Christ to serve the city together.
