DESCRIBE THE ATLANTIS PROJECT IN THREE WORDS:

Organized. Resourceful. Prepared. 

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE EXPERIENCE AS AN ATLANTIS FELLOW?

I really enjoyed my time shadowing in the cardiology department and learning about the Italian approach to healthcare as compared to ours in the United States. 

WHAT WAS THE MOST MEANINGFUL ASPECT OF YOUR TIME SHADOWING?

In Italian culture, patient interaction is much more intimate and compassionate. This is something that I definitely want to include in the way that I treat patients during my future career as a doctor. This was a really valuable thing to learn and an aspect that I will always incorporate in my patient care. 

What are your post-grad plans?

Medical school.

HOW HAS THE ATLANTIS PROJECT HELPED EQUIP YOU FOR THE FUTURE?

Along with learning about healthcare, through the Atlantis Fellowship I developed connections with several other pre-medical students. 

I was exposed to a different approach to medicine - both the good and the bad of it. I was allowed to see parts of patient care that I had never seen before.
