Boland has served as assistant dean of resident education and work environment in the Department of Graduate Medical Education at the UofL medical school since August 2016. Additionally, she holds the positions of vice chair of medical education, director of pediatric residency training and professor in the UofL Department of Pediatrics.
 
Boland is the current president of the Kentucky Pediatric Foundation and immediate past president of the Kentucky Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. She also is chair of the Association of Pediatric Program Directors’ Mid-America Region and a member of its Curriculum Task Force.
 
In addition to overseeing the pediatric residency program, Boland oversees eight pediatric fellowship programs at UofL and assisted in the creation of the department’s Development and Behavioral Fellowship, Pediatric Child Abuse Fellowship, Pediatric Pulmonary Fellowship and Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship. She also serves the university on the Promotion and Tenure Committee and the School of Medicine Wellness Committee.
 
She is a past recipient of the Paul Weber Award herself, also with the School of Medicine Master Educator Award and Dean’s Educator Award for Distinguished Teaching along with five clinical teaching awards and seven faculty peer mentoring awards.
 
From Louisville, Boland earned her undergraduate degree from Notre Dame University and her medical degree from UofL.
