Dr. Bosch is a health services researcher, epidemiologist, and critical care physician specializing in leveraging health services, quasi-experimental and causal-inference methods to inform and optimize the care of patients with critical illness. His research interests include sepsis, cardiovascular and endocrine disease during critical illness, severe alcohol withdrawal, and acute respiratory distress syndrome.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

I am committed to increasing the diversity of the biomedical clinical and research workforce and reducing disparities in healthcare. My prior work includes leading a study investigating disparities in guideline concordant insulin use during critical illness and, through my work with MA-CEAL, studies investigating patient and researcher perspectives on participating in and conducting inresearch at safety net hospitals.
