Professional Summary

Dr.  Boex has been active in health professions education for more than forty years.  Joining NEOUCOM/NEOMED  in the 1970s, he held administrative assignments in both the Dean's office and the President's office, and helped to develop a wide range of the College’s policies and practices. In the 1990s he shifted to faculty responsibilities in the Division of Community Health Sciences, where he helped guide the development and implementation of NEOUCOM's then nationally-recognized curriculum in population medicine, served as Associate Chair, and was elected a Master Teacher of the College. 
 
In addition to these efforts, for approximately ten years Boex successfully represented NEOUCOM in Columbus and Washington, working with regulators and legislators on a variety of health care and health professions education initiatives.  In the private sector his consulting clients have included a number of state governments, leading health care organizations and academic health centers, and professional societies.
 
In 2006 he moved to The University of Cincinnati with a joint appointment as Professor of Public Health Sciences in the College of Medicine and Professor of Health Care Administration in the College of Allied Health Sciences.  He served as the founding Director of the university's MPH degree program and as founding Associate Director of its innovative on-line MHA degree program.  As Professor in the College of Medicine’s Department of Medical Education he also chaired the College of Medicine’s successful 2011 re-accreditation process.
 
An active investigator throughout his career, Boex’s nationally-recorgnized work on community-based health professions education and the interactions between clinical education and clinical care has been supported by multiple federal agencies and national foundations.
 
Following his retirement from full-time work in 2012, Dr. Boex returned to his home in Hudson, Ohio, from where he has continued a reduced schedule of teaching, consulting, community service and other activities.
