PhD, Boston University
MPH, Boston University School of Public Health
MPA, Northeastern University



Dr. Howland graduated Northeastern University 1976 with an MPA, Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) 1984 with an MPH in epidemiology and received his Ph.D. in 1986 in Health Policy. That same year, he joined the faculty at BUSPH and most recently served as Professor, Community Health Sciences. His teachings range from Community Interventions, Social and Behavioral Sciences to an Advanced MPH, Intervention Research Program. Dr. Howland served as Chair of BUSPH Social and Behavioral Sciences Department and remains a professor in that department as well as a visiting professor at the Kalmar Maritime Academy in Sweden and Core Faculty, Harvard Injury Control Research Center (HICRC).

In July 2010, Jonathan joined the Faculty of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Boston Medical Center (BMC) as the Director of Public Health and Injury Prevention Research. In this role, Dr. Howland will oversee and guide the Emergency Department's Public Health research efforts focusing on harm and injury reduction, alcohol and substance abuse interventions, as well as overall public health policy as a preventative measure. As Senior Investigator, Dr. Howland will spearhead all Public Health collaborations across New England Institutions studying injury prevention and oversee and expand public health research efforts in the emergency department at BMC.

Areas of research interests include: falls among the elderly; prevention of sexually transmitted infections in high-risk populations; reduction of human error in safety-sensitive systems (training simulators to measure outcomes are used); low-dose and residual alcohol effects on occupational and neurocognitive performance; the relative effects of caffeinated vs. non-caffeinated alcoholic beverages on risk-taking behaviors among adolescents and young adults.

Serving as Principal Investigator, Dr. Howland’s research has been supported by grants from the NIH, CDC, DOD, DHHS, RWJ, as well as other distinguished agencies.
