About Apollo: Youth in Medicine
Apollo: Youth in Medicine is a unique student-led program that helps provide insight into the physician career path to interested high school students. The mission of Apollo is to reduce barriers for high school students as they seek to explore their interest in the medical field. Apollo helps expose high school students to the medical profession by offering access to in-person physician shadowing, supported by educational sessions and Enhanced Experiences. There is no cost to the student.
Apollo was founded in the summer of 2018 by three high school students and community leaders with the support of the Medical Society of Delaware (MSD) and the Delaware Youth Leadership Program (DYLN).

Apollo is offered at no cost to the students. The Apollo Leadership Team is led by the volunteer efforts of several focused & resourceful students who are firmly supported by the Medical Society of Delaware (MSD) and the Delaware Youth Leadership Network (DYLN). The team is further strengthened by the engagement of high school counselor Shannan Beck.
The Apollo program is thankful for the continued support of our Apollo Physician Volunteers and the Delaware Medical Education Foundation.
