Three reasons to do a pre-med international Fellowship:
Clinical Experience (Shadowing)
Students spend 20+ hours/week shadowing doctors, rotating through specialties. This high level of medical exposure lets students view medicine in action and fulfills the “clinical experience” requirement that med schools have on their “checklist”.
Many of our Fellowship programs offer MCAT prep courses for an affordable price.
Peer and Doctor Network
Build lasting friendships + professional relationships with pre-meds from other schools. Also, build long-lasting professional links to doctors/hospitals abroad.
"The Atlantis Project unites clinical observation, volunteering opportunity, and international exploration into a single entity. 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."
- George Bugarinovic, Harvard MD '20
"Serving as an Atlantis Fellow enabled me to learn on-the-ground about the important topic of universal health care in developed countries, as well as witness exciting medical procedures. The physicians and other medical staff I worked with were very kind and enjoyable to work with."
- Rubini Naidu, Carnegie Mellon '16
"The specialties I shadowed were geriatrics, pulmonology, and intensive care. Moreover, shadowing physician-patient interactions in Spanish was a chance to improve my grasp of Spanish medical terminology"
- Ali Khan, University of Rochester '16
