    Personal Biography

    Dr. Belamarich trained in Gastroenterology and Nutrition but returned to the practice of General Pediatrics and retained his clinical activities and interest in non-procedural gastroenterology. The shift suits his many interests and he practices and writes about both. Within general pediatrics, his interests include the diagnostic process, diagnostic errors, the practice of general pediatrics, well-child care, the application of evidence-based medicine to pediatric practice, and the use of electronic health records.  Within his subspecialty, he is primarily interested in nutrition, lipid disorders, cardiovascular health, obesity, and infant formula. 

    Dr. Belamarich has been a regular panel member of the FDA orphan drug review process and also enjoys acting as a reviewer for journals. He reviews for Pediatrics and JAMA pediatrics and for the Journal of Pediatrics.  He was recently appointment to the Editorial Board of Pediatrics in Review, and never turns down an invitation to review a manuscript with a constructive approach.  He understands and appreciates the effort involved in writing. 

    Every week Dr. Belamarich teaches residents and is always evaluating literature to share with them.  He often asks the question, is this article worth their limited time? This keeps him aware of what is important, clinically relevant and useful. 

    While the practice of pediatrics has always been intellectually engaging to him, Dr. Belamarich views it fundamentally as a job of service to patients, students, resident trainees and to his peers.
