Dr. Christopher E. Bucciarelli

September 16, 2021

He earned his doctor of medicine degree from the University of Florida, Gainesville. He completed his residency in emergency medicine at the UF Health Shands Hospital, Gainesville.

Dr. Bucciarelli also has a master of business administration (MBA) from Duke University, Durham, North Carolina.

Dr. Bucciarelli succeeds Dr. Mark Vaaler, St. Joseph’s Hospital-South’s CMO since January 2017. Dr. Bucciarelli reports to Dr. Vaaler, BayCare Vice President and Chief Medical Officer.

“He (Dr. Bucciarelli) has prepared for his role by getting his MBA from Duke University in order to understand in more depth the business aspects of health care,” Dr. Vaaler said. “He is enthusiastic, forward thinking and has participated in BayCare-wide projects in order to get involved outside the ER. He strongly believes in evidence-based medicine and collaborates well with his colleagues in formulating solutions to everyday issues.”

Dr. Bucciarelli says he draws strength and support from his wife Julie, a dermatology nurse practitioner, and Tucker, their golden retriever. He said Julie was the one who encouraged him to pursue his MBA to broaden his knowledge and she’s always been very supportive of his career along the way.
