Christopher Sidford, M.D.
Highly regarded by peers and patients alike, Dr. Christopher Sidford is a board-certified physician in Emergency Medicine with over twenty years’ experience at leading medical institutions. Before founding Black Bag, he was an attending physician with the world-renowned Lahey Clinic. He started his career at Boston City Hospital, where he graduated from the hospital’s “knife and gun club,” the residency program for emergency physicians. A U.S. Navy officer, Dr. Sidford served as faculty member of the Emergency Medicine Residency training program in San Diego before traveling overseas. The Mojave Desert and the Arctic Circle were just some of the locations that challenged Dr. Sidford to teach and practice emer- gency medicine in remote and difficult conditions. Later, he helped to open a nuclear-, chemical-, and biological-proof hospital on the island of Sicily. Upon returning to the United States, he joined the faculty at Brown University, where he taught emergency medicine and served as attending physician at Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital. His practice has cared for clients in over 150 countries and locations to date. With long waits at emergency rooms, and shrinking access to overworked physicians, Black Bag bridges the care gap by providing immediate medical intelligence for clients who desire more physician access around the globe in event of medical emergencies, whether far from home or in their hometown.
