Dr. Bose’s Bio

In 1970, I completed an undergraduate degree at Duke University, followed by completion of medical school in 1974 at Emory University. I completed a Pediatric residency at the Emory University Hospitals and Bowman Gray School of Medicine, and a Fellowship in Neonatal-Perinatal-Medicine at the University of North Carolina (UNC), and have been on the faculty at UNC since 1983

For over ten years, I have been involved in global health research and education with the goal of discovering strategies to reduce mortality and improve the health of women and children in low resource settings. Currently, I serve as a site PI in the NICHD Global Network for Women’s and Children’s Health Research (GN). I have been involved in programs sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics whose aim is to increase competency of providers of newborn care. The first was Helping Babies Breathe (HBB). This was followed by Essential Care for Every Baby (ECEB), that teaches care during the first few days after birth, and Essential Care for Small Babies (ECSB) that teaches care of the small and preterm infant. I serve on the Planning Board for HBB, am the editor for ECEB and am a co-author of ECSB. Recently, I led a group that published a simplified program for teaching the essentials of quality improvement entitle Improving Care of Mothers and Babies.

On the Horizon

About the OIA Global Health Forum

The UNC School of Medicine’s Office of International Activities now sponsors a monthly OIA GLOBAL HEALTH FORUM that features UNC clinicians, researchers, resident physicians, and scholars through which we hope to build a global health learning community through the SOM; an opportunity for residents to showcase their work and also to involve more faculty with diverse global health interests and expertise and to mix medical student and resident audiences. We hope to have diverse formats – including lectures, resident presentations of scholarly work, journal clubs and case studies.

The OIA GLOBAL HEALTH FORUM takes place every 3rd Thursday of the month through December 2017 from 12:00pm-1:00pm in UNC Hospital Starbucks on UNC campus. For more information, feedback, or to suggest a topic or speaker, please contact the OIA Program Manager, Shay Slifko
