During the course of his tenure, he taught courses on skeletal muscle diseases, head and neck pathology and general surgical pathology. Having initially undertaken an internship and residency at Duke between 1965 and 1970, he is gratified to have remained active in his profession throughout several consequential advances in both technology and standards. In a career suffused with highlights, Dr. Bossen is also proud to have been a member of the pathology team that took part in the first kidney transplant performed at Duke University during the 1960s.

Dr. Bossen initially became a pathologist due to his interest in studying the processes of disease, having never even heard of the field before he first attended medical school. He initially studied at the University of Florida, from which he received a Bachelor of Science in 1961. Following this accomplishment, he attended Duke University and graduated with a Doctor of Medicine in 1965. Upon the completion of his residency, Dr. Bossen served as an active duty officer in the U.S. Army from 1970 until 1972.

Eminently qualified in his field, Dr. Bossen bore certification via the American Board of Pathology, and held a North Carolina Medical License. Additionally, he remained aware of developments affecting his area of expertise through his affiliation with both the American Medical Association and the North Carolina Medical Society.

Outside of his vocational circles, Dr. Bossen is married to his loving wife, Roxana. Together, they are the proud parents of three daughters, through whom they have five wonderful grandchildren.

Looking toward the future, Dr. Bossen hopes to be remembered as an excellent mentor, and as someone who always turned his mistakes into valuable lessons for his students.
