Has anyone done the NYLF medicine program?

We have seen a few questions about other NYLF programs in the past. These are good programs but not as prestigious as one expects them to be and the cost is quite high. Colleges don't consider them very selective hence it won't add that much value to your college app. However, it is a good opportunity to visit college campus and meet some people while learning a thing or two about the field you are interested in. If your family is ok to pay for this it could be a good experience. Just don't expect it to be anything more than a regular summer camp.

If it wasn't for the cost it would be a decent experience

I'm not sure of surgical internships, but i did take this summer class at Johns Hopkins at its was amazing. I took Physiology and Disease and got to dissect a cow eye, sheep brain and sheep lungs. They have tons of other classes, one being an intensive medical school program. Hope this helped!!

You can try to shadow a doctor but not sure they would allow it in surgery
If I have all 118 elements of the periodic table memorized in order, I know their chemical symbols, and I know how to spell this, will this help me become an anesthesiologist? I am currently an eighth grader.

It's amazing that you have done it at your age and it will be helpful once you take advanced classes but you would need to focus more on real concepts vs just memorizing stuff. Plus you still have a long way to becoming a doctor

cardiac myopathy could increase the heart but technically it’s not the heart itself it’s the pericardium
