Is the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists legit?

Hey everyone! I just got an invitation from the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. They want me to attend their Congress event, but I'm not sure whether it's legit or just another scam. Do you guys have any experience with them or know anything about their credibility?

Hey there! I've seen other students in similar situations and I understand your concerns. The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists does hold a Congress event, but it's important to be cautious and do your research before committing to anything.

Although attending these types of events can provide some exposure to the field and networking opportunities, they are not as prestigious and selective as they may initially appear. Additionally, they often come with a high price tag, so you should carefully consider whether the cost is worth the experience you will gain.

My advice is to consult with a guidance counselor or teacher at your school to get their input on the event and to explore other reputable opportunities, such as internships or job shadowing, that can provide real-world experience and potentially better support your goals in the long run. Good luck!
