​Believe it or not, it’s not too early to start exploring the path to becoming a medical doctor. Because there’s no ‘right’ way to taking your first steps. You don’t have to be a certain kind of person or age to consider a career in medicine. You do need to be curious and open to exploring what it takes to be a health professional. You might think it is daunting to become a medical doctor and you aren’t wrong—but you’d also be surprised, by starting early, how achievable a career in medicine can be.

Find out what it’s like to pursue an education in medicine directly from one of our current students. We think this is the best way to get an idea of what this journey involves. ​

Our presentation with your class is on Wednesday, May 12 at 7:00 pm, and your presenter is Adam Mesa.

The Summer STEM Institute (SSI) was founded with the mission of making research and mentorship accessible to high school students. The program was initially started by a team of graduates, students, and educators from Stanford, Harvard, MIT, and other leading universities.

The program believes that conducting research in high school is an incredibly valuable and rewarding educational experience. By wrangling through unstructured and creative tasks in the scientific method and learning how to present and communicate findings, students develop invaluable technical and communication skills that will serve them throughout their careers in any field. It is no coincidence that those that excel in high school research go on to achieve much in college and beyond. The mission of SSI is to make this learning experience accessible to talented students around the world.

​Leading Learners is taking in student ambassadors for our new school year, on a roll-in basis. This is an opportunity available for students in high school and post-secondary to meet and engage with students on the national level. Each week, ambassadors are given a question to reflect upon their leadership and learning skills. As an example, 'what are three personal skills you believe you are strong in?' Through supervised chat-based messaging, Student Ambassadors are able to view responses from other students across Canada and gain insight on how they can build their leadership skills. By engaging students at Leading Learners, we bring new energy into our mission-based work while developing future leaders of your communities.

To date, our impact is to over 100,000 Canadian students, and we are looking forward to accepting students into our program throughout your school as well. To get to know our full story and values at Leading Learners, visit our about page at, or our website,
