Ben Lippen Stories

Student Spotlight: Daniel McMillan

As written by Casey McMillan to the Columbia Star. 

 

 

Daniel McMillan, a ninth grader at Ben Lippen School, is a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders to be held June 21-23, just outside Boston, on the University of Massachusetts Lowell campus.

The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields. The purpose of this event is to honor, inspire, motivate, and direct the top students in the country interested in these careers to stay true to their dream and, after the event, to provide a path, plan, and resources to help them reach their goal.

McMillan’s nomination was signed by Dr. Mario Capecchi, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine and the science director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, to represent Ben Lippen School based on his academic achievement, leadership potential, and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.

During the three-day Congress, McMillan will join students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science recipients discuss leading medical research, be given advice from Ivy League and top medical school deans on what to expect in medical school, witness stories told by patients who are living medical miracles, be inspired by fellow teen medical science prodigies, and learn about cutting-edge advances and the future in medicine and medical technology.

The academy offers free services and programs to students who want to become physicians or go into medical science. Some of the services and programs the academy offers are online social networks through which future doctors and medical scientists can communicate; opportunities for students to be guided and mentored by physicians and medical students; and communications for parents and students on college acceptance and finances, skills acquisition, internships, career guidance, and much more.
