Reviews by University Administrators and Faculty
"The opportunities the Atlantis Project has created for our students at the University of Arizona are amazing. With almost 9,000 Pre-Health students, we have a tremendous need for programming and AP has created a niche for these students to not only study abroad, but gain experience shadowing in European hospitals. The students were provided an incredible experience this first summer in Toledo and Zaragoza and we look forward to sending more students on AP programs in the future."

"Through partnership with AP, we were able to offer a customized program for BYU students in Guadalajara, Spain in 2016. Eleven students participated in the program and the program turned out to be a fantastic academic, pre-professional, and cultural experience for these students. Throughout the program development process, Eike Gundersen and other AP staff were very responsive, helpful, and flexible in helping us shape a program that would best fit our needs and interests. Once students were on site in Spain, students were in the professional and caring hands of an on-site coordinator and other staff in Spain. I am excited to be working with AP in developing and delivering programs for our students in the upcoming year in Spain and Portugal."

"Working with the Atlantis Project and creating our first customized short-term program for our Pre-med students was very rewarding for me and my students. AP staff is very detailed orientated and will make this process as smooth as possible. From our first planning meetings during the summer to our pre-departure orientation in December, all our concerns and questions were met, and our students had clear understanding of what to expect as part of the fellowship program. I am happy with our partnership and I look forward to more ideas and ways to give our pre-med students opportunities to experience hospital shadowing in their field."

"As the Center for Premedical and Health Profession Study’s Academic Program Manager, I had the opportunity to partner with the Atlantis Project staff in developing the first group experience and institutional partnership. “[...]” The Atlantis Project staff is terrific to work with in the program development process, and very accommodating to the University of Delaware’s Institute for Global Studies policies and procedures. I’m looking forward to creating an MOU with the Atlantis Project and continuing our new tradition for many years to come!"

"As a faculty director, I accompanied 7 of our students to the Azores Islands January 2015. Atlantis Project was great to work with and was very professional. ‘[...]” The hospital was small, so the students had the opportunity to work closely with the healthcare providers. “[...]”. Overall, it was a great experience."

“I had the opportunity to visit the AP sites in Toledo and A Coruna “[....]”. From the moment I stepped on the ground in Spain, the on-site and support coordinators made me feel welcome with personal tours of the AP facilities and highlights of the cities. The undergraduate students spoke highly of the AP and hospital staff, and the overall intensity of the program. Atlantis Fellows are able to shadow and observe many medical specialties that U.S. hospitals reserve for medical students only. The hospital doctors, residents, nurses and administration were impressed with the work-ethic of the Atlantis Fellows and appreciated their willingness to help with conversational English in the afternoons. Overall, I would highly recommend this program to any students considering medical school or another health-related profession.”

"I could not have been more impressed with the Atlantis Project, and their staff. I have never before witnessed host hospitals so excited to be working with pre-med students. The quality, combination of experiences, and intention of the program is so evident...Atlantis Project comes with my highest recommendation, and I look forward to a long working relationship and many student group trips in the future."
