Atlantis shadowing in Greece

I had an amazing time shadowing in Greece. I learned more than i thought I would and I saw more than I thought I would. Doing this program validated my love for medicine and helped me realize that it is what I want to do for the rest of my life. When I arrived in Greece, I wasn’t quite sure of what I was expecting, but I know by the end of the trip, this program far exceeded those expectations and then some. I would recommend this to everyone.

Atlantis, Patras , Greece

We got to shadow doctors and stand right over their shoulders as they performed surgeries. The doctors were also so helpful and ready to teach us. We would shadow about 5-6 hours a day and then we would go and experience the area around us and learn more about the culture. It was amazing!
From about 8am to 2pm we would see various surgeries from brain to blood vessel to ortho. There were many options. After that, we would eat the food of the area and go to the places that made Patras, Greece famous. The experiences were unforgettable.

Atlantis Fellowship in Thessaloniki

Atlantis truly exceeded all of my expectations. I came into this program expecting to shadow doctors, get my hours and maybe make a few friends. I came into this program not knowing any of the other 13 fellows and I left with a new family. Every day was another adventure, being in the hospital was very laid back, all of the doctors truly cared about your education and about involving you in their daily routines. I learned so much through all of the shadowing, but I learned so much about myself through the people I met. I made friendships that will last a life time. The 13 other fellows and I all agreed that we probably wouldn't of chosen to be friends if we all just saw each other on the street, but Atlantis brought all of our personalities together and made us realize that just because someone is different than you doesn't mean you can't get along with them. We all took multiple trips together, rented Airbnb's together and bonded so much over the course of 3 weeks. We it came time to say goodbye we were uncontrollably crying. I will never forget this experience or the people that it led me to. I am a kinder person and I have a more open mind on the world and on other people because of this trip. I would recommend Atlantis to anyone, it is truly an experience you will not regret!

How can this program be improved?
Making sure that all of the fellows live closer to each other, and that all the specialties in the hospital that are offered to the fellows are interesting!
Yes, I recommend this program
