Inge B. Corless is a Professor in the Graduate Program in Nursing and has been a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing since 1983. She accepted a position at the University of Michigan where she studied the hospice movement.

Thereafter, she was appointed a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar at the University of California-San Francisco. At the MGH Institute of Health Professions, she, with her Coinvestigator Dr. Nicholas, received grant funding from the Bureau of Health Professions to establish an HIV/AIDS specialization for nurse practitioners. That certificate program continues today in a distance-learning format. She served as the President of the Association of Nurses in Aids Care from November, 1997 to November, 1998. A sabbatical in 2003 allowed Dr. Corless to spend six months in Durban, South Africa, where she was appointed an Honorary Research Fellow (June,2003–May, 2006) at the University of KwaZulu Natal and collaborated with colleagues on research on adherence to TB and to HIV medications. He also has served as a Short-term Consultant for the World Health Organization. In 2004, she was sent by the US State Department to Botswana where she lectured on the nursing shortage, retaining of staff, and end-of-life care.
