Atlantis Project: Summer Programs

The Atlantis Project brings pre-health undergraduate students for 5-week and 10-week summer programs in the Canary Islands (Spain) and the Azores Islands (Portugal).  We also have slots for a few nursing and medical students. Atlantis Fellows intern at public hospitals, see the European healthcare system from the inside, and improve language skills; some also contribute to the islands by teaching English to community members. Atlantis Fellows:

  • gain an international perspective on healthcare,
  • discern whether a health career is right for them,
  • and help fine-tune their precise career interest.

In 2013 our undergraduates came from over 60 universities including 7 of the top 11 universities in the world: Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Berkeley, U. Chicago, Oxford, and Cambridge. 2014 is our 7th year. We also run a 3-week January program in the Canary Islands.

We are still accepting applications on a rolling basis for summer 2014! Applications will be accepted until no later than mid- to late-March but we may close applications earlier depending on numbers (we will update our website when we close). If you are applying, please do so at your earliest convenience.
