Separated at graduation: The Boden triplets part ways for a great cause
Woodruff Health Sciences Center | May 3, 2018
The Boden triplets will be separated for the first time in their lives as they graduate from Emory University School of Medicine and head to different residency programs to begin their careers in orthopedics. On Match Day — the day medical students learn of their residency locations — the triplets discovered their fates: Lauren is headed to University of Pennsylvania, Stephanie to University of Pittsburg, and Allison to University of Miami.
The triplets have been overachievers throughout their lives — as young scholar athletes, top honor students with the highest GPAs of their high school class at Lakeside High in Atlanta, and now, graduating from Emory School of Medicine on May 14th. As they enter one of the most challenging and competitive fields in medicine, the young women are ready to experience their next chapters separately.
“They are ready,” says their mother, Mary Caulfield Boden. “They all agreed that this is the perfect time to be their own person and spread their own wings.”
Despite the fact that orthopedics is a rigorous and heavily male-dominated field, the young women are confident and ready to accept the challenges that lie ahead. They certainly had a strong role model in their father, Scott Boden, MD, vice president for Business Innovation for Emory Healthcare and interim chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
“It’s been amazing!” agree the triplets. “So now we are finally parting ways but we think that we are ready for it.”
