The acceptance of transfer credits between institutions is at the discretion of the receiving college or university. An applicant who wishes to receive a transfer and/or equivalent credit evaluation prior to enrollment must provide official college transcripts and training certificates.

3. Take notes during the Congress about key experiences, takeaways, and observations.


4. After the Congress, revisit notes and write an seven to ten-page Congress Reflection to summarize the experience and discuss how you will apply key takeaways from the Congress to your life or your future career in medicine.

About The Congress Reflection Essay:

After attending the Congress of Future Medical Leaders, revisit your notes on the topics discussed and the speakers’ presentations. You will write a minimum of seven pages as a reflective paper on what you learned and explain about the speakers you are highlighting.


The paper will be double-spaced, APA formatted (cover page required, no abstract, and no references), and will be specific with the following information.


1. Introduction – overall impression of the Congress


2. Summarize the presentations from your four favorite speakers with the key takeaway from each speaker (each speaker should be at least a page)


3. Reflection of your goals in medicine or science


4. Final thoughts from the Congress


You will be graded according to the following:


– Degree to which your response reflects the content of the Congress


– Evidence of generalization of concepts to other aspects of your life or the industry


– Quality of the articulation of your ideas


Expected time for completion of the Congress Reflection is ten to twelve hours.

The Congress Reflection response will be graded by Bottega University faculty to determine whether you will earn credit. The essays will be graded based on your ability to clearly synthesize your experience at the Congress in your response. To earn credit, passing requires a grade of C or higher, as is expected of all other undergraduate-level Bottega University students. The final grade will be a letter grade. A grade of “C” or higher is considered passing.
