An internet-based module for teaching thoracic imaging with a multidisciplinary approach
Dr. Phillip M. Boiselle is is a Professor of Radiology and the Associate Dean for Academic and Clinical Affairs at Harvard Medical School. He is also an attending radiologist in the Department of Radiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Dr. Boiselle completed his undergraduate degrees in Chemistry and Speech Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He attended medical school at the Duke University School of Medicine and completed his residency training at Yale University, where he also served as Chief Resident. He subsequently completed a fellowship in Thoracic Radiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Following his fellowship, he served as Director of Thoracic CT and Director of Pre-Clinical Radiology Education at Temple University Hospital and Medical School for three years. Since joining the faculty at BIDMC in 1999, he has served in a variety of leadership roles, including Vice Chair for Quality, Safety and Performance Improvement in Radiology; Director of Thoracic Imaging; and Director of Resident Career Development and Mentoring, among others. In his current role as Associate Dean for Academic and Clinical Affairs, he has primary responsibility for overseeing the integration of faculty development and diversity initiatives across Harvard Medical School and its affiliates. He is also responsible for oversight of HMS initiatives, programs, centers and institutes.
As a Fellow at the Institute, Dr. Boiselle completed two educational projects. With Dr. Richard Schwartzstein, he developed an on-line CME course entitled "Clinical Challenges in Chest Imaging." This module is comprised of a series of cases in which a multidisciplinary approach is employed to educate clinicians and radiologists about the complementary roles of clinical, laboratory, and radiology data in the diagnosis and management of various thoracic disorders. In addition, during his fellowship year, Dr. Boiselle also completed a project designed to compare resident and faculty perceptions regarding an online faculty appraisal instrument and process. A manuscript based upon this project entitled "Evaluation of an Online Faculty Appraisal Instrument: Comparison of Resident and Faculty Perceptions" has been published by the journal Academic Radiology. Since completing his fellowship, Dr. Boiselle has continued to develop his interests in educational scholarship. He also serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Thoracic Imaging, a journal that publishes peer-reviewed educational and scientific articles devoted to cardiopulmonary radiology.
