It can be stressful, it can be exhausting, it can be heartbreaking, but at the end of the day, it’s one of the most exhilarating and uplifting experiences a young person can ever have. This is about hope, inspiration and the human spirit.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 11, 2015
Applications are now being Accepted for the Ultimate Med Internship 2016 to India, the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists announced today.
The Ultimate Med Internship 2016 accepts high school students who are passionate about medicine and are considering a future as a physician. The internship program takes students to countries such as India and the Philippines to give them a truly hands-on experience participating in initiatives designed to help them understand what it truly means to be a doctor.
During the 17-day Ultimate Med Internship, 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 can even spend time in the morgue with pathologists and doctors who are performing autopsies.
“It can be stressful, it can be exhausting, it can be heartbreaking, but at the end of the day, it’s one of the most exhilarating and uplifting experiences a young person can ever have. This is about hope, inspiration and the human spirit,” said Richard Rossi, founder of the Ultimate Med Internship and Executive Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists.
After students have completed their time with doctors and patients, they come home and continue to prepare for their future in medicine. “I want to become a cardiologist, and I got to hear heart murmurs. I got to see and hold a heart. [Ultimate Med Internship] makes you love what you’re going to do in the future. It amplifies what you want to be,” shared Luke Holden, who attended UMI 2014 to the Philippines.
The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists was founded on the belief that it is important to identify prospective medical talent at the earliest possible age and help these students acquire the necessary experiences and skills to take them to the doorstep of this vital career. Based in Washington, D.C., and with offices in Boston, Massachusetts, the Academy was chartered as a nonpartisan, tax-paying institution to help identify, encourage and mentor students who wish to devote their lives to the service of humanity as physicians or medical scientists.
