Shadow doctors for 20+ hours a week in Spain, Italy, Greece, South America, and other locations.
1-8 week Fellowships during winter, spring, or summer breaks.
A Trusted Partner.
Since 2007, we have collaborated with hundreds of doctors at dozens of international hospitals to enable shadowing opportunities for students from over 200 American universities. The Atlantis Project is leading the way for undergraduate international healthcare education.
Prepare for medical school admissions.
Students grow in their understanding of healthcare and the medical vocation in general. Extensive observation of physician to patient interaction allows students to gain confidence in a hospital setting. In addition, students have access to volunteering, MCAT and AMCAS preparation resources, and research opportunities in the medical humanities.
Intensive shadowing abroad.
Shadowing in the US is difficult to arrange and simultaneously essential for pre-meds. Even when secured, US shadowing can be of poor quality. Furthermore, pre-meds should understand healthcare in a global context to broaden their horizons and expand their perspective as a physician.
We look for students who are passionate about deepening their vocation for medicine and healthcare.
Admissions are rolling, but placements are limited.
"The trek into medicine can be an arduous undertaking. The distinctive experience offered by the Atlantis Project can serve to validate and invigorate your desire to enter the medical field. Both the medical and exploratory aspects of the Atlantis Project, if they were separate, would warrant an ardent pursuit. When combined, they create an opportunity unlike any other."
