Nominations are being made for the Congress of Future Medical Leaders to be held June 25–27, 2018, in Boston, Massachusetts.
Hosted by the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, the Congress is an honors-only program for high school students across the country who aspire to be physicians or medical scientists. The event is designed to honor, inspire, motivate and direct these students to stay true to their dream. The students selected for the program will then be provided a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.
Students are nominated by Dr. Mario Capecchi, winner of the 2007 Nobel Prize in Medicine and the Science Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, or by high school teachers across the country. Nominations are based on academic achievement, leadership potential and a determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine. Students attending must have a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
During the three-day Congress, Congress delegates will join other students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners talk about leading medical research, receive advice from top medical school deans on academic expectations, witness patients who are living medical miracles, be inspired by fellow teen medical science prodigies, and learn about cutting-edge advances in medicine and medical technology as well as what the future holds.
