Sudip Bose, MD, FACEP, FAAEM
In 2007 Dr. Bose received the National Faculty Teaching Award, the industry’s highest teaching award, and afterward was selected by the American College of Emergency Physicians as one of the “Heroes of Emergency Medicine” of the last 40 years for his contributions to the specialty. He has also earned the status of Distinguished Fellow of Teaching by the American College of Emergency Physicians and multiple teaching recognitions as a former associate residency director.
Dr. Bose is an attending emergency physician with a breadth of clinical experience, from the busiest urban emergency rooms in the nation to underserved community hospitals. Currently, he practices as a “pit doc” at Medical Center Hospital in Odessa, Texas where he provides single coverage in the emergency department as well as in-hospital codes.
Teaching health care professionals is Dr. Bose’s true passion. Dr. Bose, who himself earned the highest score in the nation on the A.B.E.M. Annual In-Training Examination in 2002, has developed a national reputation in the area of medical board examination review in the field of Emergency Medicine. As a resident at Darnall Army Medical Center in 2000, he founded a multifaceted curriculum for resident mastery of core concepts in Emergency Medicine.
This curriculum still exists today and has led Darnall Army Medical Center to achieve the number one score in the nation on the A.B.E.M. Annual In-Training Examination for seven years in a row (2000-2006). From 2005 to 2009 Dr. Bose served as an Attending Emergency Physician and Teaching Faculty Member at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois, a high acuity, high volume emergency department with a renowned residency training program that now serves as the busiest emergency department and trauma center in Illinois.
Under Dr. Bose’s direct mentorship, the Advocate Christ Emergency Medicine Residency Program earned the number one score on the A.B.E.M. Annual In-Training Examination in 2007, 2008, and 2009 (the position previously held by Darnall Army Medical Center). In 2009, Dr. Bose moved to Texas and was appointed the Medical Director for Ector County, Texas, and the city of Odessa, Texas, and in this role has been directly responsible for the training of hundreds of pre-hospital personnel. He also serves as a clinical professor at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, as an adjunct professor at the University of Illinois, and has held faculty positions at the University of Texas and Texas A&M.
Dr. Bose, a former Major in the U.S. Army, served one of the longest combat deployments by a physician since World War II. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Dr. Bose cared for thousands of wounded soldiers and Iraqi civilians. He provided front-line emergency care during the peak of insurgencies in Baghdad and Najaf and treated Saddam Hussein shortly after his capture. In addition, Dr. Bose was one of the only front-line physicians in the Second Battle of Fallujah during the U.S. seizure of the city. His 15-month tour in Iraq and leadership role with the Battalion that fought in two of the largest and most hotly contested fights by the U.S. Army since Vietnam earned him the Bronze Star.
He uses his military, physician, and teaching experience to be an active proponent of veteran and health care issues in the national and international arena. He educates the public through worldwide media appearances and lectures to audiences numbering in the thousands (more details are available on www.DocBose.com). Dr. Bose has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, CBS News, and local news affiliates. In addition, he serves as a medical correspondent for a weekly CBS segment discussing medical and personal health issues.
A passion for education and the pursuit of better patient outcomes has led Dr. Bose to develop this review course tailored to new nurses. His skills in medical management help provide a unique perspective to a course that is sure to help any graduate nurse pass his or her boards with flying colors.
Benina Vuelvas BSN, RN
Hi! I’m Benina Vuelvas BSN, RN! Let me tell you a little about myself. I received my Bachelor of Science in nursing from the University of Texas at the Permian Basin. Trust me when I say I feel your struggles and pain while preparing for your NCLEX.
I was frustrated before I took the NCLEX that there was no succinct high-yield review in the days leading to the exam. It’s impossible to go over everything in the final week! I teamed with Dr. Bose who has started similar “crash course” reviews for other specialties. I lead a team of nurses to weed out the vital “need-to-know” information to review immediately prior to the exam when creating the content for this course. We receive feedback from students immediately after their exam to create our content for our “1-day accelerator” course. I’m passionate about helping you, and will be your direct point of contact if you have any questions. Join me on the journey and let’s make this exam as easy as possible for you…so you can move on with your career!
Your nursing sister,
Benina Vuelvas, BSN, RN
