Clinical Shadowing + MCAT Course Overview

The Atlantis Clinical Shadowing + MCAT Fellowship is a competitive MCAT course & physician shadowing program with placements in Europe in summer 2018 (May-August). Atlantis Clinical + MCAT is possibly the best-value high-touch program of its kind in the United States. You will receive 60-80 hours of MCAT instruction on the 4-week program and over 120 hours in the 8-week program. Our proprietary curriculum and world-class instructors teach you the content and test-taking strategies you need to know to improve your score potential dramatically. Going abroad allows you to focus on your prep. You will also have the opportunity to shadow for 40+ hours on your program. Applications are now open. 


Who's teaching?

Former test takers that have scored in the 90th percentile, have been accepted to medical school, and have taken the new MCAT. The instruction you will receive while on an MCAT Fellowship will be second to none. Not only that, the curriculum is developed by an MD candidate that scored in the 99th percentile on the new MCAT. If you're getting ready to tackle one of the most intimidating tests on earth, an MCAT Fellowship is a great way to jumpstart your preparations and beat the test. 

What else?

  • 80 hrs of MCAT prep
  • All students receive all AAMC online practice resources
  • Curriculum will address high-yield science topics
  • Students will be self-testing using AAMC Full length practice tests, the most representative practice tests.

What's Included?

Hospital placement : We will arrange your hospital and doctor shadowing program. Specialty options vary by location and you will usually be shadowing one-to-one with a doctor or in pairs with another Fellow. Observing surgical procedures is not guaranteed. You will have the option before your program to choose your leading preferences for specialties in your hospital, but we cannot guarantee you will be able to see your preferred specialties. 

Pre-med Advising: A core part of our program is providing world-class advising and resources to our students. Our Washington, D.C. team has been picked to provide top quality pre-med advising. We have advised hundreds of students to date using our own proprietary advising model. 

Housing: We arrange your program housing and you will live with other students on your program. Housing varies depending on availability, but usually you will share a room with one or two Fellows in a university dorm, hostel, or hotel.

24/7 Staff Support: Our trained international team is available 24/7 to help you in your city.

Excursions: Our international team will coordinate a number of fun trips with your groups, usually on Fridays, to nearby areas. 

Travel Health Insurance: We provide travel health insurance to help cover any medical expenses you incur abroad.

Partial Meals: We provide two group dinners per week (usually Monday and Wednesday), lunch on excursion days, and light breakfast.
