She has a B.A. in Philosophy from the Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College, and received her M.D. from Weill Cornell Medical College in 2011. Dr. Boeck completed her general surgical residency training at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia in 2018, during which time she obtained a Master of Public Health degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the first of two research years away from clinical duties. The second was spent in Santa Cruz, Bolivia working on hospital-based trauma registry implementation, and developing the city's trauma and emergency response system. Dr. Boeck's professional passions include global public health, especially as it relates to injury prevention, gun violence, emergency response, and trauma and surgical system strengthening in low-resource settings, diversity in the surgical workforce, and the power of social media in medicine.
