Professional Background

Dr. Marilee McBoyle is a Clinical Professor of Surgery at the University of Kansas Medical Center-Wichita. She is a surgeon educator for surgery residents and medical students. Dr. McBoyle is the Surgical Director of the Surgery Residency Skill/Simulation Lab and led the process for the Lab receiving accreditation by the American College of Surgeons as an Accredited Education Institute. For almost two decades, she supervised surgery resident outpatient clinics. She teaches medical students on the surgery clerkship, and oversees the MS-4 Surgery Readiness Bootcamp. For ten years, she was the Medical Director of the Ascension Via Christi Wound and Hyperbaric Treatment Center. In this role, she initiated hyperbaric oxygen as a treatment modality for challenging wounds. She also developed a Wound Curriculum for medical students which served to involve many medical students doing elective rotations in the Wound Center. In this educational pursuit, she was a speaker at a National Wound Meeting in New Orleans and presented a poster in San Antonio.

Dr. McBoyle received her medical degree from the University of Kansas. This was followed by a five year General Surgery Residency at St. Francis Hospital-Wichita and a one year Burn and Trauma Fellowship at the University of New Mexico. The early years of her practice focused on each of these areas and she was instrumental in establishing the ATLS courses at St. Francis Hospital. Later she developed a large breast practice.

During 2020, Dr. McBoyle received the Wichita Business Journal Health Care Hero Award as an Ascension Physician. She was also voted by her peers to receive the 2020 Outpatient/Ambulatory Physician Leadership Award. Additionally, as a member of the University of Kansas School of Medicine Promotion and Tenure Committee, dedicated time was spent reviewing applicants' for promotion-during her three-year commitment.

She has served as guest faculty for ACS Simulation Course at the University of North Carolina--Chapel Hill. In 2018, she was named a Master Surgeon Educator-Associate by the American College of Surgeons. Most recently, she applied and was accepted for the highest honor by the American College of Surgeons as Member of the Academy of Master Surgeon Educators (MAMSE).

During the time Dr. McBoyle's practice was devoted to breast care and surgery, her research and publications were related to that specialty. Now as a surgeon educator, research is directed to topics of surgical education. Most recently she co-authored a publication in the "Journal of Surgical Education" outlining factors related to medical students choosing a surgery residency. As the attending overseeing the MS-4 Surgery Residency Boot Camp, she has co-authored a survey, published in the Kansas Medical Journal (2021) on "Resident Prep Course Instills Confidence in Learners." A follow up article regarding the Boot Camp on "Short and Long-Term Success" has been submitted to the Kansas Medical Journal. Dr. McBoyle also presented a poster at the national Symposium for Advancement of Wound Care in San Antonio (2019) related to survey results educating medical students in chronic wounds. Ongoing areas of research interest are especially related to Surgical Simulation and the benefit to the student and resident.
