Tommy Szeto - Atlantis Project Pre-Medical Fellowship - Spain

The Atlantis Project Pre-Medical Fellowship is a program available to pre-med students to allow them to travel to different countries to shadow doctors and nurses in real hospitals around the world in order to get a sense of what life is like in and out of the professional medical field. The fellowship provides pre-med students with an intensive and exciting study abroad experience that is highly relevant to their future careers. This experience was also extremely helpful for those who learned a second language allowing students to apply what they have learned in class (like Spanish or French) and actually have full-on real face to face conversations with native speakers.
Atlantis Fellows get the chance to experience global healthcare through shadowing rotations at hospitals abroad, preparing them for medical school applications through reflective hospital observations, volunteer work, medical humanities research, and optional MCAT prep. I shadowed surgeons, anesthesiologists, internal medical professionals, and could not have been more thankful for the program for giving me such an amazing and exciting experience that I hope will help me pursue a career in cardiothoracic surgery.
