Now I Know

Hear directly from some of our Envision alumni about what they gained after attending an Envision program and how it helped inspire them to pursue their passion.

Your time at Veterinary Medicine will take you far beyond the classroom. You have the opportunity to explore the design of zoo enclosures, experience wildlife in their natural habitat in Manuel Antonio National Park and the jungle of Costa Rica, and help care for real animals at the Land of Strays dog sanctuary and on local farms in Belize.

The Envision Experience

Envision is committed to well-rounded, real-world-applicable education. All of our programs are designed by industry experts to help young learners identify their interests and gain the skills they need to make their dreams a reality.

NYLF Medicine follows a three-tier curricular approach that includes the Academy, Lab, and Arena.


Students are exposed to new skills and concepts through immersive learning and exploration.

Examples include...

  • Gain a holistic perspective of the medical profession and industry through engaging seminars and keynotes

  • Visit a top medical school, where you will tour the facility and explore the latest training tools and techniques

  • Take an in-depth tour of a local medical simulation center, interact with health care providers, observe proper patient care, and participate in hands-on activities where you can apply your clinical skills and knowledge


Students build creativity and critical thinking abilities by participating in dynamic hands-on simulations.

Examples include...

  • Be put into the position of a first responder as you practice the life-saving clinical skills needed in a true-to-life emergency during the Outdoor Medicine Simulation developed by professors in the Stanford University School of Medicine's Department of Emergency Medicine

  • Respond as a medical professional to a high-pressure Triage Simulation in which you will have to apply your medical knowledge to triage patients with varied injury levels

  • Get hands-on experience in clinical workshops focused on the tools and techniques practiced by medical professionals


Students have the opportunity to shine among their peers while presenting solutions and competing in a public platform.

Examples include...

  • Engage in creating a marketing campaign to help prevent the spread of viruses during the Designer Virus Workshop

  • Participate in and perform medical ethic activities in which you practice debate skills, analyze ethical issues from varying perspectives and appreciate diverse opinions

  • Apply your newly acquired clinical skills and knowledge by practicing on lifelike mannequins at a medical simulation center
