Three reasons to do a summer fellowship abroad:
Rotate clinical areas each week. Observe doctors in different specialties in a hospital setting for 20 hours/week. Fellows typically observe more specialties than in a domestic Fellowship.
Prep for Med School
Get an edge with real-world observation. Refine and validate your focus in medicine. Take advantage of opportunities in volunteering, medical humanities research, and MCAT prep.
A Global ExperiencE
Understand healthcare in a global context. Shadow in developed hospitals and observe different approaches to solving healthcare issues. Immerse yourself into the local culture and make lifelong friends.
"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
