National Youth Leadership Forum: Advanced Medicine & Healthcare

Grades 9-12 | Johns Hopkins University

Get ready to embrace your inner Doc Brown because we’re headed to the future. NYLF Advanced Medicine & Healthcare will introduce you to the cutting-edge virtual reality (VR) technology employed by the next generation of physicians.

Over the course of your time at NYLF Medicine, you will:

  • Participate in multiple Apprentice Doctor® workshops covering topics like surgical knot tying and the basic principles of orthopedics
  • Spend two full days at the George Washington University School of Nursing and the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center
  • Step into the scrubs of a doctor during multiple VR workshops on topics like venipuncture, resuscitation, and wound care
  • Enjoy completing group projects and spending social downtime with your fellow high school attendees

NYLF Advanced Medicine and Healthcare was designed to give you a behind-the-scenes look at a life dedicated to medicine. During your day at the GWU School of Nursing, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with real patients alongside the resident nursing students. These encounters are highly valued by our NYLF Advanced Medicine alumni, who rave about the opportunity to experience patient care firsthand.
