“Medicine is among the most honorable of professions and young people need a positive message and all the direction, confidence and capabilities possible to make their dreams come true, which is how FutureDocs Abroad came to exist.”
BOSTON December 06, 2017
The National Leadership Academies announced today that they have launched the All Access Medical Internship through FutureDocs Abroad.
FutureDocs Abroad accepts high school and college students who are passionate about medicine and are considering a future as a physician. FutureDocs Abroad takes students to countries such as Poland, Vietnam and Mexico, for a hands-on experience designed to help them understand what it truly means to be a doctor.
During each two week program, students have the opportunity to spend time in the gross anatomy lab working on full human cadavers; be in the operating room or on the observation deck viewing surgeries and talking to physicians; and shadow physicians who are treating patients in emergency rooms, clinics and their medical offices. Students also spend time in the morgue with pathologists who are performing autopsies.
“Medicine is among the most honorable of professions and young people need a positive message and all the direction, confidence and capabilities possible to make their dreams come true, which is how FutureDocs Abroad came to exist,” says Richard Rossi, founder and executive director of the National Leadership Academies. “It’s a program, like NO OTHER, that allows a mature group of driven and passionate high school students to travel on an overseas adventure and spend two weeks experiencing the ‘Big 3,’ 100% hands-on, up-close, and personal.”
Enrollment is now open and applications are being accepted for the 2018 internships.
The National Leadership Academies was founded on the belief that a strong emotional intelligence is the cornerstone of student success and is committed to supporting students in their development. The National Leadership Academies also recognizes that we must identify prospective talent at the earliest age possible and help these students acquire the necessary experience and skills to take them to the doorstep of vital careers as leaders and in the fields of medicine and the sciences.
The National Leadership Academies supports America’s high-achieving high school students through career and focus-area programs and services. By creating the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists and the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists, the National Leadership Academies is positioned to support students with skills, motivation, education, mentorship, and unique experiences, so they stay on track to achieve their goals.
