A student studying abroad with Atlantis Project | Pre-med Fellowship Abroad
I learned what it is like to be a physician every day, I learned which specialties I find interesting and which ones I don't. I learned how to be independent and understand what it's like to have to adjust to foreign lifestyle. This experience was the most amazing opportunity I have ever been given. - Bowling Green State University / BGSU View Entire Review

Past Review Loved It!
I was placed in Albacete, which was a pleasant surprise.

I learned a great deal about medicine during my time here as well - I shadowed a di... - Harvard University View Entire Review

I enj... - University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill View Entire Review

Any type of study abroad experience will undoubtedly leave a student enchanted by the idea that various aspects of life are so hugely different from what he or she may be used to in their native country.
