In 1970, Dr. Bose completed an undergraduate degree at Duke University, followed by completion of medical school in 1974 at Emory University. He 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 has been on the faculty at UNC since 1983.

For over ten years, Bose has 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, he serves as a site PI in the NICHD Global Network for Women’s and Children’s Health Research (GN). Dr. Bose has 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. Bose serves on the Planning Board for HBB, is the editor for ECEB and is a co-author of ECSB. Recently, he led a group that published a simplified program for teaching the essentials of quality improvement entitle Improving Care of Mothers and Babies.
