Hospital Internships Abroad - Shadow Doctors for 20+ Hours
Hospital internship programs run by the Atlantis Project provide students experiences within government-run hospitals in Europe and a number of other countries. Students have the opportunity to shadow alongside local doctors and health professionals for 20+ hours a week. These experiences are essential for fostering a deeper understanding of universal healthcare systems and the field of medicine and healthcare overall. Our programs also provide Fellows with the opportunity to give back to the local communities through teaching English, volunteering, or participating in research. Additionally, Fellows have the option to focus on their language studies while on site for an additional cost before the internship begins. In their spare time, Fellows participate on Atlantis Project sponsored excursions to explore their new destination!
HighlightsAtlantis Project operates in beautiful island locations and is soon expanding into mainland Spain. Our programs help you to become a better candidate in interviews and on applications, and will help you to improve or develop Spanish or Portuguese language skills. No matter your level of language experience, you are sure to gain plenty of benefits from Atlantis Project programs and will meet great friends along the way!
