He is a graduate of the Honors Program in Medical Education at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois and completed his Emergency Medicine Residency Program at Darnall Army Medical Center in Fort Hood, Texas, the highest volume emergency department in the U.S. military. In 2007 Dr. Bose received the National Faculty Teaching Award, the industry’s highest teaching award. In 2012 he was selected by the American College of Emergency Physicians as one of the “Heroes of Emergency Medicine” over the last 40 years for his contributions to the specialty. He has also earned the status of Distinguished Fellow of Teaching by the American College of Emergency Physicians and multiple teaching recognitions as a former associate residency director.
Dr. Bose is an attending emergency physician with a breadth of clinical experience, from the busiest urban emergency rooms in the nation to underserved community hospitals. Currently he practices as a “pit doc” at Medical Center Hospital in Odessa, Texas where he provides single coverage in the emergency department as well as in-hospital codes.
Teaching healthcare professionals is Dr. Bose’s true passion. Dr. Bose, who himself earned the highest score in the nation on the ABEM Annual In-Training Examination in 2002, has developed a national reputation in the area of medical board examination review in the field of Emergency Medicine. As a resident at Darnall Army Medical Center in 2000, he founded a multifaceted curriculum for resident mastery of core concepts in Emergency Medicine. This curriculum still exists today and has led Darnall Army Medical Center to achieve the number one score in the nation among over 140 civilian and military residency programs on the ABEM Annual In-Training Examination for seven years in a row (2000-2006). From 2005 to 2009, Dr. Bose served as an Attending Emergency Physician and Teaching Faculty Member at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois, a high-acuity, high-volume emergency department with a renowned residency training program. Advocate Christ Medical Center now serves as the busiest emergency department and trauma center in Illinois. Under Dr. Bose's direct mentorship, the Advocate Christ Emergency Medicine Residency Program earned the number one score on the ABEM Annual In-Training Examination in 2007, 2008 and 2009 (the position previously held by Darnall Army Medical Center). In 2009, Dr. Bose moved to Texas and was appointed Medical Director of Ector County, Texas and Medical Director of the City of Odessa, Texas, and in this role has been directly responsible for the training of hundreds of pre-hospital personnel. He also serves as a clinical professor at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, as an associate professor at University of Illinois and has held faculty positions at University of Texas and Texas A&M.
Dr. Bose, a former Major in the U.S. Army, served one of the longest combat deployments by a physician since World War II. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Dr. Bose cared for thousands of wounded soldiers and Iraqi civilians. He provided front line emergency care during the peak of insurgencies in Baghdad and Najaf, and was the US physician selected to treat Saddam Hussein shortly after his capture from the spider hole. In addition, Dr. Bose was one of the only front line physicians in the Second Battle of Fallujah during the U.S. seizure of the city. When not on missions, Dr. Bose volunteered his free time by serving at the busiest trauma center in the world at that time, the Ibn Sina Hospital, Baghdad. His 15-month tour in Iraq and leadership role with the battalion that fought in two of the largest and most hotly contested fights by the U.S. Army since Vietnam earned him Presidential recognition and several awards including the Bronze Star, The Combat Medical Badge, The Army Commendation Medal and was featured as a “CNN Hero.”
He uses his military, medical, and teaching experience to be an active proponent of veteran and healthcare issues in the national and international arenas. He educates the public through worldwide media appearances, and lectures to audiences numbering in the thousands (more details are available on www.TheBattleContinues.org). Dr. Bose has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, CBS News and local news affiliates. In addition, he served as a medical correspondent for a weekly CBS segment discussing medical and personal health issues. He serves as Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of liveClinic, a portal that helps physicians sustain their outpatient practice.
A passion for education and the pursuit of better patient outcomes has led Dr. Bose to develop this review course tailored to emergency medicine physicians. His prior experiences help provide a unique perspective to a course that is sure to help Emergency Medicine physicians pass their LLSA exam with flying colors.
