The National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF): Advanced Medicine & Health Care provides an opportunity for outstanding high school students to experience a wide array of health care careers and develop the skills required to succeed in college and in the 21st century health care environment.
This summer, you will have the choice of residing on campus at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD), Columbia University (New York City) or the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).
The challenging and rewarding program includes a real medical training facility for a simulated patient encounter. You will diagnose a patient and develop the optimal plan of care. You also participate in the forum’s six-phase epidemiology case study, which puts you at the center of managing a serious outbreak.
