Winning In Faial Island, Portugal
Submitted by Oluwasina George Williams - Troy University | October 19, 2016
The unique opportunity of traveling to Faial Island was a revelation of gigantic proportions. During this fellowship I gained clarity on how much the teaching aspect of medicine influences my desire to become a physician. The physicians and hospital personnel helped me to realize how much fun I can have as they taught the various intricacies of their individual crafts. Their impact has instilled a greater dedication in me to gain as much knowledge as possible while keeping it “simple,” so that anyone, regardless of education, language barriers, or socioeconomic backgrounds, will be able to understand the content. Although a language disparity existed, the ability for the Portuguese to simplify complex concepts was impressive.
A Summer in Cuenca
Submitted by Heather K - Duquesne University | March 08, 2016
This past Summer I had the privilege of partaking in a cultural healthcare experience like no other. As a rising Junior Nursing student, I embarked on my trip with plenty of enthusiasm and a couple semesters of clinical and theoretical knowledge. Although I was the only Nursing student on the trip, I feel like I potentially got the best experience. I had a basis of knowledge, saw things that I learned about in class and ultimately grew in my confidence. It was incredible to meet other future healthcare providers from across the country. We bonded, went out to eat each day, and tried to embrace the Spanish lifestyle as best we could. I spent three weeks in a small town called Cuenca. It was absolutely beautiful and I love, love, love Spanish culture. The people were friendly and by taking advantage of weekends to travel, I found that I got a really well rounded travel experience as well.
Best Shadowing Opportunity I Have Ever Had
Submitted by Sebastian Garcia - Texas A&M University | March 04, 2016
The Atlantis Project has been the best opportunity I have had for shadowing. I was placed in different departments such as neurology, psychiatry, thoracic surgery, internal medicine and gastroenterology. In these departments I shadowed amazing doctors who showed me so much, I was able to see things first hand and feel like a resident by their side. I wish i could do it again, Spain was amazing! on the weekends we got to travel wherever we wanted to, and they had amazing activities for us to experience aside from shadowing. The coordinators expect you to be very mature and devoted, so they do not require you to go to the hospital to shadow, but you definitely do not want to miss anything! Best experience ever.

Life Changing Experience with the Atlantis Project
Submitted by Rohan Datla - SUNY Binghamton University | March 02, 2016
During the summer following my freshman year of college, I had the opportunity to be a fellow for the Atlantis Project. This life-changing experience taught me many valuable things. From the actual shadowing hospital program to the leisure excursions, the Atlantis Project planned and executed a flawless experience. The biggest thing that I got out of this fellowship was meeting new and amazing people and experiencing healthcare outside of my own country.
what an enriched experience
Submitted by katherin - St. Johns University | March 02, 2016
The Atlantis project not only allowed me and my fellows to shadow and experience a doctors/surgeons daily life was but it also gave us a sense of direction into what we all are looking for and what we are not looking for. Through out the program I was able to pinpoint where in the medical field I would like to follow up on and where I was sure not to. I learned so much and was actually able put my knowledge to use and see how much I actually know. It was overall an amazing experience and I recommend everyone who is interested in the medical field, to go do this program.
