What’s it like participate in a hospital internship?

Hear about the life of Atlantis Fellows outside of the hospital! 

Pre-health or pre-med undergraduates, nursing students, medical students, and anyone interested in a health related profession.

Interning at public hospitals, observing doctors in the hospitals, seeing the European healthcare system from the inside, improving language skills, and contributing to the islands by teaching English to the locals or volunteering in the community.

Programs run May-September, December-January, and March. See program overview for more details.

The Canary Islands
(Spain) or the Azores Islands (Portugal).

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.
