I attend NYLF on Medicine in Washington DC at Georgeotown the summer of 2002. It will always be one of my favorite educational experiences. The people I met were awesome, and the staff really did a great job. I definitly recommend it to all high schoolers interested in medicine.

NYLF Emory Med '05 :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown:


I don't recommend it. Horrible speakers, horrible clinical rotations, and horrible dorms.

Waste of my parents' money. Oh well. :mad:

Oh, and Georgia sucks. :smuggrin: I think it would have been a lot better had I gone somewhere like Boston or Los Angeles or somewhere else... :(

LOL....man I remember going there. It was actually alot of fun! I went in '02...I think. It was the D.C. conference, but we stayed at U of MD.

Come to think of it, they called is National Student Leadership Conference on Medicine.....I'm guessing its the same thing.

Berkley 02, its worth the money in my opinion to actually see pre-college whether you want to persue a pre-med ciriculum, as well as being interesting. Also, I got to see the real patch adams make an ass of himself

I felt it was worth it now...although at the time it was more of a resume padder.......I had lost interest in medicine just before heading off...helped rekindle it a bit but then lost it again before coming back.....it was good though. I learned interesting stuff and actually had far less exposure to docs and more to the public health side.

Yeah. During that I actually decided I WASN'T going to pursue medicine. What got me back on track was doing some actual shadowing of doctors and finding out how much I like the job first hand.

I was there also! Though I believe there were like three sessions that summer. I was in the Kountz group and was there in July on Georgetown's campus. Good times all around.

Boston in 2000
My group went to MGH and saw an angioplasty and to Harvard Med School where we were able to hold kidney and lung sections in the anatomy lab. That trip easily sold me on Boston.

Figured I would get some Houston love on the board...

Houston 2001 (i think?)
NYFL Houston class of 2002. That's where I found my love of medicine...
... as well as where I became a man. ;)

Don't know anything about NYLF, but I like MILFs.
Who doesn't? That would be like saying you don't like freedom. :D
