Low Cost Flights
We recommend searching for flights through sites like skyscanner.com or edreams.net. These sites often offer cheaper ticket options than Orbitz or Kayak, which can help when searching for flights but typically pull up the more expensive fare options. They do not show low cost carriers like Ryanair or Easyjet, which offer cheap flights throughout Europe and are included on skyscanner.com and edreams.net.
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.
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 fares, 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. "

"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. "
