Atlantis programs are study abroad opportunities designed specifically for pre-health students! Students will spend a minimum of 20 hours per week in the hospital environment shadowing doctors. They will shadow four days per week, generally between 9am – 2pm. One weekday per week is reserved for an Atlantis-organized group excursion of cultural, regional, or historical interest. Students will shadow in a variety of medical fields inside the hospital – surgical and non-surgical. Atlantis programs are observational only, in accordance with the Association of American Medical Colleges (“AAMC”) and Global Ambassadors for Patient Safety (“GAPS”) guidelines (clinical skills are not practiced).
For pre-med & pre-health students currently enrolled at Harvard. This program is done in partnership with the Premedical and Health Career Advisors at Harvard College.
