This mother-daughter duo is making history together as the first-ever to graduate from medical school at the same time and match at the same hospital.
The University of Medicine and Health Sciences (UMHS) reports that Dr. Cynthia Kudji & daughter, Jasmine, both matched at LSU Health in Louisiana after receiving their medical degrees–Cynthia in Family Medicine and Jasmine in General Surgery.
The two were thrilled to receive this news on Match Day last month as they studied for years apart at separate schools. Cynthia earned her degree in St. Kitts and Maine from UMHS and her daughter obtained her M.D. from LSU School of Medicine in Louisiana, according to Because of Them We Can.
