Philip Boysen, MD

Born in Tampa, Florida, I grew up on the Chicago South Side; BS in Biology from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul MN, back to Chicago and earned an MD from Loyola-Stritch School of Medicine. I completed internship/residency in Chicago, and have board certification in Internal Medicine and Pulmonary Medicine. I completed military service in the United States Navy as a Flight Surgeon (Viet Nam era veteran), and then anesthesiology residency, hold board certification in Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine. I spend 40% of my clinical time in Surgical Critical Care at Ochsner (OMC). I am also Clerkship Director for Critical Care Medicine for the UQ/OCS students, a 4th year rotation. My academic appointment is Professor, University of Queensland, also Clinical Professor, Tulane University School of Medicine, and Emeritus Professor and Chair, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My recent publications address medical education and patient safety.

SAFETY. Above all, Safety. I learned basic elements of safety during my experience with Naval Aviation and Ships of the Line, and apply it to clinical practice. The Agency for Health Care Research and Quality provides structure to my care philosophy, and my activities as a Master Teacher for TeamSTEPPS.
