During the three-day Congress, Macie Tyler will join students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science recipients discuss leading medical research; be given advice from Ivy League and top medical school
deans on what to expect in medical school; witness stories told by patients who are living medical miracles; be inspired by fellow teen medical science

The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists was founded on the belief that we must identify prospective medical talent at the earliest possible age and help these students acquire the necessary experience and skills to take them to the doorstep of this vital career.
