Checkout what our alumni have to say...

Before the Congress I was not sure if the medical field was right for me. I always knew I had a passion for research and answering questions, but I always felt odd- especially because I had my own lab set up in my garage! But once I reached the Congress and I felt the energy and enthusiasm from those around me, I knew I was exactly where I belonged. I wasn’t odd anymore, I was a part of a family that wanted nothing else but to help me pursue my dreams of becoming a medical examiner. This new group of people I found myself in really helped inspire me and reassure me that I was on the right track to my future.
