Heather Miselis


Dr. Miselis is an Assistant Professor of Family Medicine at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine (BUSM) and Principal Investigator of Boston University Community Health Alliance of Medical Professionals (BU CHAMPs). Since completing residency she has been a practicing family physician in community health centers in Boston as well as on the inpatient units at Boston Medical Center. She is inspired to work with others to develop healthcare teams that address the quadruple aim of (1) enhancing patient experience, (2) improving population health, (3) reducing health care cost, and (4) improving the work life of health care providers (Bodenheimer, Ann Fam Med 2014). She is active in advising, teaching and providing leadership and professional development to the next generation of health care providers and in 2019, became an inaugural member of BUSM Academy of Medical Educators advising, mentoring and teaching medical students. She is the interprofessional education lead for BUSM and has developed a longitudinal model for interprofessional education in practice for the primary care environment. Her mixed-methods research includes evaluating the effects of patient-centered team-based care on patient, trainee and healthcare outcomes. Her clinical and teaching experiences have developed expertise and interests in interprofessional practice and education, team-based collaboration, continuous quality improvement, leadership development and practice management. She is a National Institute for Program Director Development (NIPDD) fellow, a Fellow in American Academy of Family Physicians and a member of National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education and American Interprofessional Health Collaborative (AIHC) . She is an AIHC Program Committee member and Co-Chair of the Student Engagement Workgroup.
