Atlantis | Company Overview
Atlantis is the leading education-abroad provider for pre-health students. Based in Washington D.C., we are a dynamic and mission-driven education company that runs short-term hospital observation programs (Atlantis Fellowships) for American undergraduate pre-med & pre-health students. Our students, called Fellows, travel to various global locations during college breaks for an intensive health experience, shadowing doctors in local hospitals and immersing in the local culture. For more information on our programs see our website's homepage.
Atlantis MCAT Instructor | Role Description
Atlantis is passionate about helping pre-med university students realize their vocational calling. Our 4-week MCAT Fellowships feature high-yield content review and self-testing using the most representative AAMC materials. They also include 40 hrs of clinical shadowing over 4 weeks. Atlantis is hiring qualified individuals to lead MCAT instruction for Fellows in Almansa, Spain and Pavia, Italy for the following date ranges:
Almansa, Spain (one 4-week program from July 12 through August 10th) | $1250 stipend
Pavia, Italy (three 4-week programs from May 17th through August 10th) | $4000 stipend
Guarda, Portugal (two 4-week programs from June 09 through August 3rd) | $2500 stipend
Atlantis MCAT Instructors will be trained to teach Atlantis’ proprietary MCAT curriculum, developed by a March 2017 MCAT exam-taker who scored a 526.
The expected workload is moderate, averaging 35 to 40 hours per week. MCAT instruction will be Monday through Thursday, and most of your weekends will be free for individual travel or relaxation. Average class size is between 8 to 10 students. You will be invited to join group meals twice a week (Monday and Wednesday evenings) and an all day excursion on Fridays (which includes a meal). Instruction during the first two weeks of a 4 week program will be lighter than the last two weeks. See a sample schedule below:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
#1 Is there a training process involved?
Yes, we will host a training in D.C. either May 5-6 or May 11-12. Training will run from Friday evening to Saturday evening.
#2 How many Fellows will I teach?
Average class size is between 8 to 10 Fellows.
#3 Is 4 weeks really enough to prepare for the MCAT?
Unless you are super-human, of course not! The 4 week MCAT Fellowship is not meant to be a comprehensive content-review. Most of the curriculum centers around high-yield content and self-testing, utilizing AAMC materials (the most representative practice tests available).
#4 Why should I trust this MCAT curriculum?
The designer of our proprietary curriculum has a full year of teaching experience (teaching science at a charter school to 6th, 7th and 8th graders) and self-studied to score a 526 on the MCAT in March 2017. He previously scored a 31 (83rd percentile) on the old MCAT in August 2014, and has accumulated close to 1000 hours of MCAT study time and experience. He has experience using MCAT materials from providers such as Firecracker, The Berkeley Review, ExamKrackers, The Princeton Review, Khan Academy, and all AAMC materials. He was invited to interview at 9 medical schools this past cycle and will matriculate to medical school in Fall 2018.
