Low Cost Flights
Although travel sites like Orbitz or Kayak can help Fellows searching for flights, don’t be discouraged if their prices seem too expensive. These sites often list more expensive fairs than what our Fellows are able to typically pay.
One helpful strategy to find cheap flights is to look for tickets with a layover (with plenty of time to avoid missing a leg) for both departing and arriving flights. Also, most popular aggregators like Orbitz or Kayak do not show low cost carriers like Ryanair or Easyjet, which offer cheap flights throughout Europe. We recommend sites like skyscanner.com or edreams.net, which may offer cheaper ticket options than Orbitz or Kayak.
As with any part of our programs, our admissions and site coordinators are here to help you coordinate every step of the way. Should you have any questions regarding booking flights or cheaper fairs, feel free to reach out to our team, and we'll help you in any way we can.
"My experience in Spain with the Atlantis Project further instilled within me the importance of studying medicine cross-culturally. I'm glad I got to learn medicine from a different perspective from the doctors I got to shadow, but at the same time exchange with them how my aspirations to become a physician is intertwined with my identity as a first-generation, low-income minority in the U.S. "
- Gabriel Reyes, Brown University
"Atlantis Project is a truly exceptional pre-medical internship program that offers a comprehensive global healthcare experience! During my internship in Talavera de la Reina, Spain, I met some of the most compassionate healthcare professionals who were so excited to not only educate us but also to get to know us. Their love for medicine has further reaffirmed my decision to devote my life to serving in the medical field. "

Explanation of Fellowship fees.
The Atlantis Fellowship fees are used for two different costs. About 50% of your fees go toward long-term staff, program development, and promotion. The other 50% go towards on-site program logistics costs, including on-site staff, housing, transportation expenses, meals and excursions.
We understand that the Fellowship is a significant investment, but we believe it is worth the program fee. We also help you fund the Fellowship through fundraising tools and, in some cases, need-based aid and merit scholarships. Please note that we do not charge an application fee. If you are accepted, an $800 non-refundable down-payment of your program fee (shown below as "$800 deposit") will be required to reserve your placement.
