I had an amazing time in Budapest, Hungary shadowing doctors during The Atlantis Fellowship. I made a great group of friends that I'm still in touch with and got to explore the city with them. All of the doctors that I shadowed were extremely helpful. They would take the time to explain what they're doing and why they're doing it, and they made an effort to make sure we could see everything that was going on during the surgical procedures. I would 100% recommend this program to anyone, it was definitely worth it.

Fellowship Fees

Our Fellowship fees are broken down into three parts, the enrollment fee, a initial program fee, and the final program fee. The enrollment fee is a $900 non-refundable payment that reserves your placement and serves as a housing deposit. The two program fee payments is dependent on your Fellowship length and Fellowship location. The initial program fee payment is 50% of your program fee, while the final payment will be the remaining 50%.

Other expected personal expenses

Your program fees will cover the following:

  • Housing
  • Transportation to and from the hospital
  • Two group dinners per week
  • One weekly excursion and lunch

You can plan on the following for other expenses:

  • Transport to and from your host city (flights and any necessary trains or busses)
  • Lunches and dinners not included in group activities
  • Personal transport around the city (taxis, busses, or trains)
  • Weekend travel, shopping, entrance fees to different major attractions

Typically, Fellows can expect to spend around 150 USD per week on personal expenses, assuming no major weekend travel or other unusual expenses. Flight costs vary based on origin city and how far in advance flights are booked. Our team is experienced in helping students search for flights effectively to reduce the cost of round trip tickets.



"While everyone's initial determining factor is the price tag that they see for the program location of their desire, let me tell you something, it's absolutely worth it. In the US, there are few hospitals that allow shadowing of surgeons and physicians, and even fewer that allow you to be in the operating room seeing everything the medical providers see. For those unsure of their career path in medicine, this is the best thing to figure out if the hospital life is for you."
