Shadow abroad

Shadow doctors across different specialties for 20+ hours per week in Europe or Latin America.

3 Reasons You Should Shadow Abroad

Clinical Experience (Shadowing)
Shadowing doctors for 20+ hours per week lets students witness medicine in action and fulfills the "clinical experience" requirement on med schools' checklists.
You'll go on amazing weekly excursions and experience the food, culture, and sights in some of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Build a Network
Develop lasting friendships and professional relationships with pre-meds from other schools, as well as 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."

"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."

"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."
