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. 

Housing: We arrange your Fellowship housing, coordinated with other students on your program. Housing will be hotel-style, with participants sharing a room with one Fellow of the same gender. Site Mangers will also be housed in the same location. 

Partial Meals: We provide three group dinners per week, lunch on excursion days, and light breakfast. For meals not covered by the program fee, participants will eat together, along with their Site Manager.

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

Hear from Alumni

Throughout the fellowship, I never stopped learning, whether it be in the hospital, around the town of Tomelloso, or on excursions. The hospital staff were extremely open to teaching, and my passion for medicine was greatly heightened. I learned about many procedures and medications...The town and excursions allowed me to absorb the culture of Spain. Because of Atlantis, I feel more prepared in beginning my medical career, and I hope to attend another fellowship in the future.

Hear from Parents of Alumni:

As parents, my wife and I found that the staff at Atlantis Fellowship are prompt, courteous and well informed. They are helpful and always returned our calls and email messages quite promptly. Our son thoroughly enjoyed his trip to Tomelloso, Spain and speaks very highly of this fellowship program. He enjoyed shadowing the doctors at the hospitals in [Tomelloso] and he has thus far received numerous offers of enrollment at medical colleges in Europe conditional upon his SAT results. Our son also speaks of the excellent chance in meeting new people and learning new culture. We highly recommend this program to all prospective medical students.
