BU Alumnus to Head Compliance for Health System

Mr. Joshua A. Boxer, a 2001 graduate of Boston University School of Public Health, has been named executive director of regulatory compliance for the University of Miami Health System (UHealth).

Mr. Boxer stepped into the new role on January 9, joining the UHealth compliance, risk, and quality team. He will have system-wide regulatory and accreditation oversight.

As the son of two academic pediatric specialists, Mr. Boxer says he always expected to go to medical school, “until I realized that requires being able to handle the sight of blood, which let’s just say is not my best skill set.” Instead, he decided to pursue health law and policy, which brought him to BU.

“I enjoy working within the health system to improve processes and ensure compliance,” he says, “which I believe results in improvement in the quality of patient care.” As he begins his new role as executive director of regulatory compliance, he says, “I am excited and honored by the opportunity the UHealth system has granted me.”
