Caitlin Abruzzo of Manhasset was accepted to participate in the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine (NYLF/MED) taking place in Washington, D. C. from June 23 to July 2. NYLF/MED is a career development program for high school students who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership potential and an interest in medicine. She will join approximately 350 other high school students from around the country. Throughout the 10-day forum, NYLF/MED will introduce Caitlin to a variety of concepts in public health, medical ethics, research and general practice, including site visits to medical facilities and clinics. Students will engage in a problem-based learning simulation, an educational method where they are presented with a fictional patient's case history and must diagnose and develop a treatment plan for the patient. In addition to site visits to cutting edge medical schools and clinical facilities, she will hear from and have the opportunity to interact with leaders within the medical field. Students have up-close personal contact with physicians, surgeons, researchers, scientists and medical educators as they go behind the scenes to view these professionals at work.
