During each week of your Atlantis Fellowship you have the opportunity to observe a different medical specialty. Spending every week in a new department of the hospital, you get the opportunity to meet doctors, gain insight into to new areas of medicine, and discover medical interests you didn't even know you had!
If you are an undergraduate interested in healthcare, you are eligible to apply for our fellowships. Most of our fellows are pre-med, nursing, pre-PA, public health, pre-PT, or hospital administration.
Mornings are for shadowing, times can vary slightly depending on which department you are in each week. Afternoons for discovering your short-term home! A huge part of your Atlantis experience is the opportunity to explore a new place and culture.We encourage our Fellows to enjoy their free time to make unforgettable memories!
Atlantis was founded in 2007 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina as an effort to connect U.S. University students with international medical professionals. We've remained passionate about exchange and excellence in medical education and networking ever since! Medicine and international healthcare get us excited and we can't wait to share that excitement with you.
Atlantis excursions give you and your group of Fellows the opportunity to explore local sites and culture with your Site Manager - a local expert. Excursions vary by location, but some common examples are city tours, culinary experiences, kayaking, beach hopping, and local festivals. Our excursions are designed to help you fall in love with local traditions and build life-long friendships with other Fellows.
Atlantis Fellowships take place all over the globe! Spain, Italy, Greece, Chile, Hungary, Panama, Portugal, Croatia, Ecuador, Lithuania, Czechia, and Uruguay. Our network is expanding, so check back in with us for new and exciting locations!
We of course don't want you to miss class, so Atlantis Fellowships take place during summer and winter breaks. University breaks are the perfect time to set yourself apart and build your resume for medical school applications and interviews. Many Atlantis alumni have used their Atlantis experience as a key talking point during their medical school interviews.
