Paul Miles, MD

Vice Chair

Member since September 2022

I am a fourth generation Idaho native. I graduated from Stanford University, completed medical school and pediatric training at UCLA and practiced general pediatrics in Twin Falls for 24 years, five of those years in a mixed family medicine/pediatric practice. During that time I served on the hospital board, helped co-found the Idaho Perinatal Project and served as the Co-Director of the Center of Excellence in Rural Healthcare at Magic Valley Regional Medical Center. I became interested in healthcare quality and made a mid-career change in 1999 becoming Chief Quality Officer at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, TN.

In 2002, I joined the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) in Chapel Hill, NC as the Senior Vice President for Maintenance of Certification and Quality focusing on how to help pediatricians measure and improve quality of care. I served as chair of the board of directors of the ABP prior to joining the leadership team. While at the board, I served on multiple national quality committees with the American Academy of Pediatrics, the AMA and the Children’s Hospital Association. I also served for six years on the Board of Directors of the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) and for over ten years as the vice chair of the ABFM Foundation Board of Directors.

In 2014, I retired, and Anne and I moved back to Boise. Since then, I have served as a children’s health quality improvement advisor for St. Luke’s Health System and for the Department of Child health at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. I am involved in non-profit work in Boise with Idaho Partners for Good. I like to fly fish, do woodworking, read and we travel a lot to see our scattered family. My passion is helping healthcare teams assess and improve quality of care especially for kids.
