  • We are in the midst of the most significant and fundamental change in healthcare delivery in our lifetime. Young people who may eventually consider a career in medicine need to understand the changing nature of healthcare delivery and its impact on attending medical school, choosing a career and developing the skills they will need to be future leaders in the field.

    The Global Youth Summit on the Future of Medicine's intensive seven-day program is tailored to outstanding high school students who are already interested in pursuing careers in healthcare.

    You can expect to gain unique insight into the dynamic world of healthcare through experiential learning, guest lectures and networking opportunities with the leaders and innovators in the global medical community in order to build upon their already significant abilities and chart their path to becoming a leader in medicine.
