Dr. Gerard Hogan is currently serving as secretary for The Salisbury School’s Board of Trustees. He moved to the Shore with his wife, Dr. Leslie Belloso, and two young children in 2005. As a radiologist and physician partner of Peninsula Imaging, LLC in Salisbury, he works on the medical staffs at Tidal Health Peninsula Regional Medical Center, Tidal Health Nanticoke Hospital, and Atlantic General Hospital.
Gerard graduated Summa Cum Laude from Villanova University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering. While studying engineering and taking pre-med courses at Villanova, he was also a runner with the Villanova Cross Country and Indoor/Outdoor track teams. He received his MD from the University of Maryland Medical School in Baltimore which he attended with his future wife, Leslie. He completed his internship at Mercy Hospital in Baltimore and his residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the University of Maryland, where he served as chief resident during his final year. Subsequently, he completed a fellowship in Body Imaging at Johns Hopkins University.
Born in London, England to two Irish parents, Gerard spent his childhood overseas living in England, Libya, and Saudi Arabia. He attended the American International School in Riyadh, a school sponsored by the Ford Foundation which had students from 55 nations. One of his favorite childhood memories was waiting to meet a special visitor to the school, an athlete he had never heard of--Muhammed Ali--who stopped by the school on his way to Mecca.
Gerard’s wife, Dr. Leslie Belloso, also spent her childhood overseas in the Philippines before moving to the Eastern Shore as a child. After they had both completed their medical training in Baltimore, they were drawn back “across the bridge” by the beauty and people of the Eastern Shore. Gerard and Leslie have enjoyed contributing to the community. Gerard is on the board of the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra, while Leslie has been on the boards of the Eastern Shore Ballet Theatre and the Life Crisis Center.
The Salisbury School was the obvious and easy choice for their two children, Liam and Fiora, who have been Dragons since 2010, K and Pre-K respectively. They have especially enjoyed the yearly tradition of Global Awareness Day.
More recently, Gerard has served as the assistant coach for the Cross-Country team and is also a member of the Booster’s Club. Both have been wonderful and enriching opportunities for him. He is excited to be a part of The Salisbury School Board and hopes to continue to help TSS thrive.
