Is your child pre-med?
Book an appointment with an Admissions Coordinator to learn about the benefits of going on an Atlantis Fellowship.
Taylor Thornburg and Catherine Bacheldor, two veteran members of our Admissions Team, are looking forward to speaking with you about how an Atlantis Fellowship can help shape your child's educational future. Both Taylor and Catherine have worked with hundreds of students in various stages of their pre-med journey, and have been on Fellowships themselves. Taylor has been on a Fellowship to Zaragoza, Spain, and Catherine has been on a Fellowship to Cuenca, Ecuador.

Our Core Values
At Atlantis, safety is our first priority.
Safety is and always will be our top priority. Going abroad for any reason can plague one's mind with fear, doubt, and trepidation. At Atlantis, we understand this, which is why we've invested an extraordinary amount of time into creating programs that are incredibly well coordinated and hiring the very best, most trust-worthy people to help run them. Check out our team and Site Manager profiles below.
In the over 400 programs we've run across over 10 countries, we have maintained a 100% safety rate, and there have been no major incidents. We believe this is due to our thorough and meticulous planning — we always ensure that the locations, hospitals, and people are conducive to a safe, valuable, and enjoyable experience.
Valuable & Educational
Atlantis fellows have the leg up getting into med school.
The Atlantis Fellowship is America's leading study abroad program for pre-med and M.D. students. Our program gives your son or daughter the opportunity to better understand the medical profession and its many specialties, deepen their understanding of international healthcare, and prepare for post-undergrad applications, all while on break so as to not miss important classes. Atlantis Fellows often find their fellowship experiences invaluable sources of stories that enrich their medical school essays and interviews.
The Fellowship also has personal benefits, and every year we see students in our programs improving language skills, developing life-long friendships, increasing self-confidence, expanding their worldview, and testing their conviction and commitment to the medical profession.
Rewarding & Enjoyable
Fellows leave feeling confident and accomplished.
As a parent, you not only want to ensure that the experience is both safe and valuable, but you also want your child to have an enjoyable experience (if only that they might better retain all they learn!)
At Atlantis, the focus is on the long-lasting educational value, but our programs are no bore. Each week, after students have spent ample time in the hospitals, they will have the option to attend the weekly excursions Atlantis has planned. These excursions typically expose the students to the local scenery and culture and have consistently been reviewed as one of the best experiences of our students' undergraduate experiences!

Hi! I’m Joana...I’m originally from Oeiras, just outside Lisboa. I have a master’s degree in Conservation and Restoration and I love sports. I’ve never lived anywhere else besides Lisboa but I have a very open mind and I love traveling and exploring new culture and customs.
I know Portuguese Sign Language
Best Travel Memory
I’ve done a 10-day road trip throughout Spain and visited 12 cities.
One Thing I Want Fellows To Take Away
I hope you embrace the Portuguese culture and not be afraid to try new things.
