The Congress


Welcome to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders. The Congress is an honors-only program designed to motivate and direct the top students in our country who aspire to be physicians or medical scientists, engineers, or technologists and encourage them to stay true to their dream.

During the Congress, students view live surgery and have an opportunity to submit questions for the surgeon to answer in real time during the procedure. They learn about state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and are inspired by world-changing researchers, futurists, and technologists.

They feel the transformative energy of being surrounded by thousands of young stars just like them: America’s best and brightest, the future of medicine.

Congress Delegates begin long-term friendships with those who share their dreams and passion – other young people who want to make a difference in the world and devote their future to saving lives and being part of the exponential advances in medicine that never before could have been imagined.

Inspiring the young people at each Congress are luminaries of the medical field as well as leaders of the profession from government and the public sector. Speakers include Nobel Prize winners, top medical school deans, leaders in medical research and cutting-edge technology, as well as leaders from private industry.

As a lifelong educator, I have a deep commitment to experiential learning and am proud that New Charter University (NCU) can offer the Congress of Future Medical Leaders as an NCU academic program available exclusively to qualified high school students.

At NCU, our mission is to leverage advances in innovative technologies and educational models to provide high-quality, flexible, and affordable distance education programs so students can attain recognized degrees that advance their careers and improve their lives.
Our vision is to build the most affordable and accessible private university in the world. Given our mission and beliefs, we would like to help create a world in which no one is deprived of access to quality education.

Through the Congress and its National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, our nation’s future medical leaders, their parents, and their teachers receive extensive information and guidance through our educational programs, mentoring teleseminars, and a social network that connects young people to each other as well as to medical professionals and academicians.

I hope you take advantage of all you can from the Congress. Welcome to the world of medicine and medical science.
