About The National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine (NYLF/MED)
The National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine (NYLF/MED) introduces outstanding high school students to the world of medicine. This 10-day program familiarizes students with professionals from some of the nation’s top medical centers and faculty from renowned institutions of learning.
With close cooperation from many prestigious and technologically-advanced hospitals, research facilities and medical schools, the Forum challenges students to learn about a broad range of topics, including educational requirements, career options, clinical practice and complex ethical and legal issues facing the medical profession today. Students will learn about medical specialties and primary care with current physicians and patients, explore what life will be like as a resident, and discuss responses to epidemics and threats to public health.Courtesy of: The National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine (NYLF/MED)
