Meet Our Fellowship Co-Directors
Dr. Philip Bolduc earned a B.S. in electrical engineering in 1991 from Brown University and worked for five years in photovoltaic systems engineering, research and design. He left his engineering career in 1996 to attend medical school at the University of Massachusetts, graduating in 2000. He completed a residency in Family Medicine in Lawrence, MA in 2003 and a fellowship in HIV Medicine at the University of California San Diego in 2004. Dr. Bolduc returned to the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center (GLFHC) as faculty in 2005 to practice full-spectrum family medicine, train medical students and residents, and become the HIV Program Medical Director.
In 2007 he started the GLFHC Hepatitis C program, treating both mono-infected and HIV/HCV co-infected patients. He moved to the Family Health Center of Worcester in 2011 and continues in the same lines of work. In 2012 he transitioned the HIV Program at FHCW from an ID- to PCP-centered care model and in 2013 started a Viral Hepatitis Clinic. In both Lawrence and Worcester, Dr. Bolduc has had a special interest in training and supporting family physicians in the comprehensive care of HIV and viral hepatitis patients in the community health center setting. He has been an accredited HIV Specialist by the American Academy of HIV Medicine since 2003.
Navid Roder, MD is a graduate of the University of Basel School of Medicine in Switzerland. He completed his residency in Family Medicine at the Family Health Center of Worcester site of the Umass Family Medicine Residency. He is also a 2015 graduate and inaugural fellow of UMass' Community Based HIV and Viral Hepatitis Fellowship. During medical school Navid showed a particular interest in HIV care through HIV outreach work in Tanzania. He developed a keen interest in underserved medicine both before residency in his work in Tanzania and Haiti, and during residency while he trained at a FQCHC in an urban underserved setting.
During residency he gained a strong appreciation for the integration of HIV care in primary care, as well as development of population care. With his fellowship training in HIV and viral hepatitis he hopes to further his skills in teaching, learn to oversee the care of a population, and leave his fellowship with the medical knowledge and leadership skills to continue as an HIV and viral hepatitis program leader, while continuing to practice full spectrum primary care with obstetrics and teach in an academic setting.
Navid speaks English, French, German, and Farsi fluently, and has basic skills in Spanish. In his free time he enjoys playing piano and banjo, cycling, and spending time with his young child.
