Spotlight on Aidan Fitzpatrick (III)


Aidan Fitzpatrick (III) will be representing Boston Latin School at the Congress of Future Medical Leaders this coming spring on March 26 and 27.

The Congress of Future Medical Leaders is a program designed to engage high-performing students who aspire to enter the medical field after high school. The program aims to guide those who have both the potential to serve the community through their work and demonstrated ability to collaborate with peers in order to achieve their goals.

Fitzpatrick’s nomination was signed this summer by Dr. Mario Cappechi, the co-winner of the 2007 Nobel Prize in Medicine and Science Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists.

During his time at the Congress, Fitzpatrick will participate in discussions with Nobel laureates and National Medal of Science winners regarding recent discoveries and advancements in the medical fields.

Fitzpatrick is thrilled to participate at the Congress and looks forward to hearing from pioneers in the science community. He shares, “I think the activities I will be participating in throughout the program will be beneficial as I explore future career opportunities.”

Apart from medicine, Fitzpatrick also enjoys engineering and chemistry. He hopes to combine and deepen his understanding of all these interests during the program. He elaborates, “What fascinates me about medical engineering is the equipment I would be able to build and program as well as [its] importance […] in the medical field.”

Fitzpatrick believes that the Congress will help him navigate his future. “I’m looking forward to the program. I hope it will help me better understand what I want to pursue after high school, what I want to major in and my future career,” he expresses.
