HOW IS THE ATLANTIS PROJECT UNIQUE?
The Atlantis Project sounded like a great opportunity to shadow doctors and to learn about another healthcare system. I had an incredible time on the program, both academically in the shadowing experiences and culturally.

Just sign up.
WHAT WAS THE MOST MEANINGFUL ASPECT OF YOUR TIME SHADOWING?
In my shadowing, I got to see a wide variety of specialties which helped me narrow down what area of medicine I am most interested in.

It was truly one of the greatest experiences in my life. I learned so much about the medical field, met some great friends, and really found out that I want to be in the medical field. I got to see procedures and ask questions in a setting that encouraged learning.
