Dr. Phillip M. Boiselle is Professor and Dean of the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University. He previously served as Associate Dean for Academic and Clinical Affairs and Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School.
A graduate of the Duke University School of Medicine, Dr. Boiselle completed his residency at Yale University followed by a fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital. His clinical career has focused on thoracic imaging, an area in which he is recognized as an international expert. As Director of Thoracic Imaging at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard Medical School, he developed and led a nationally recognized section that was also highly valued locally for its emphasis on quality and safety. This emphasis led to his subsequent appointment as Vice Chair for Quality and Safety.
Dr. Boiselle’s educational leadership experience has been fostered by formal training as a Rabkin Fellow in Medical Education at Harvard Medical School. He has held a variety of local, regional and national educational leadership roles, including Director of Pre-Clinical Radiology Education, Radiology Residency Program Co-Director, Thoracic Imaging Fellowship Director, President of the New England Roentgen Ray Society, and President of the Society of Thoracic Radiology, among others.
Dr. Boiselle’s research career has been primarily devoted to multidisciplinary, translational research involving the role of non-invasive imaging for enhancing the diagnosis and care of patients with a variety of airway disorders. An NIH-funded investigator, his study of tracheal dynamics led to the recognition of tracheomalacia as a distinct phenotype of COPD with therapeutic implications. Dr. Boiselle has also served as an investigator for the NCI-funded National Lung Screening Trial, a randomized control trial that was the first to demonstrate the ability of CT screening to reduce lung cancer mortality. Since the completion of this trial, he has played a national role in guiding the successful implementation of high-quality lung cancer screening in community and academic settings. Dr. Boiselle’s scholarly publications include >250 original research articles, review articles, editorials, book chapters, and books. He has served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Thoracic Imaging since 2011.
Dr. Boiselle is a dynamic leader and a champion for diversity and inclusion as a means of achieving institutional excellence. His leadership experiences have been reinforced by leadership studies at the Harvard School of Public Health, the Harvard Law School Program on Negotiation and the American Association of Medical Colleges.
