The Time is Now
Atlantis sends students to shadow doctors in top European hospitals, where they develop the personal competencies and unique perspectives that medical schools are actively looking for. With COVID-19, opportunities to shadow are limited, and Atlantis will set you apart as a leader in your incoming med school class.
Programs run for 1–10 weeks during academic breaks in multiple cities in Europe and the U.S. Open to all pre-health students (18+) attending college or recently graduated. Beat the rush and apply today!
Compared to typical pre-health clinical experiences, Atlantis shadowing provides far greater depth, breadth, and quantity: more meaningful observation, more specialties, and more hours. It also offers an intercultural perspective. And these are the four qualities medical schools value in any healthcare experience.
Most pre-health students wish they had more time to study. Atlantis shadowing accomplishes so much extracurricular-wise during your summer that you can cut activities (and focus on your grades) during your semesters.
We offer single and multi-country programs, taking place for a few weeks over breaks, in several countries.
Rome is the capital and the largest city in Italy. It is one of the most ancient cities in the world – beautiful, and full of history and culture. Known as the Eternal City, Rome is one of the birthplaces of Western civilization and has accrued about 2,500 years of history since its founding in 753 BC. The historical center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers many locations to see, including Vatican City, an independent country, and the only country to be geographically situated within a city.
The largest city in Greece, Athens has long been the heart of this beautiful country. An empire and powerful civilization built over centuries, Athens has served as a cultural beacon throughout Europe and the world. With an extensive history that began in the Neolithic age, the spectacular monuments found there still stand as a testament to ancient times.
Located in the Mediterranean Sea, east of mainland Spain, Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands. This island is rich in history and has signs of habitation from 6,000 BC.
Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal. Located on the Atlantic Ocean and the Tagus River, Lisbon is not only the capital of Portugal but is also considered one of the most global cities due to its rich cultural, economic, and trade history. Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in Europe, and its deep history is evident in its intricate architecture, wealth of artistic treasures, and abundance of scenic neighborhoods.
Sibenik, Croatia is the oldest originally Croatian town on the Croatian coast. It was founded by Croats in the 9th century and is in very close proximity to the over 300 Croatian islands in the Adriatic Sea. Throughout its long history, it has been influenced by several different nations, but the most prominent and visible still today is the Venetian influence.
Milan is a global hub for the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, research, and last but not least, healthcare.
Pavia is a mid-sized city, about 30 miles south of Milan, in the southern part of the Lombardy region – that is to say, deep in the heart of northern Italy’s rice-growing territory. This city has a lively cultural life, and a wide variety of delicious, traditional Italian food.
