Keaira Miller to attend FutureDocs Abroad to jumpstart her career

Keaira D. Miller, a 12th grade student at Morton High School of Hammond will attend the All Access Medical Internship in Hue, Vietnam from July 5 to July 20, 2019.

FutureDocs Abroad allows high-school students to access what only third and fourth-year medical students can in the United States. The purpose of this internship was to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country who aspire to have careers in medicine, to stay true to their dream and, after the internship, to provide a path, plan, and resources to help them reach their goal.

During the two-week internship, Keaira will join students from across the United States and spend time in the gross anatomy lab working on full human cadavers, visit and assist in the operating room, deliver babies both naturally and through cesarean section, learn first-hand from physicians, shadow physicians treating patients in emergency rooms, clinics, and their medical offices.

“Being able to shadow physicians and literally observe an open heart surgery, work in the gross anatomy lab, witness live births, hold a human brain, and so much more, is extremely exciting to me and I can’t wait to experience it all!” says Keaira.

FutureDocs Abroad is a part of The National Leadership Academies, which was founded on the belief that a strong emotional intelligence is the cornerstone of student success and is committed to supporting students in their development. The National Leadership Academies also recognizes that prospective talent must be identified at the earliest possible age and help must be given to these students to acquire the necessary experience and skills to take them to the doorstep of vital careers as leaders and in the fields of medicine and the sciences.

The National Leadership Academies supports America’s high-achieving high school students through career and focus-area programs and services. By creating the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists and the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists, the National Leadership Academies is positioned to support students with skills, motivation, education, mentorship, and unique experiences, so they stay on track to achieve their goals.
