Nicholette's Atlantis Fellowship

I am honored to have been accepted into the Atlantis Fellowship Program this Summer in South America. The Atlantis Project pairs pre-health students with doctors in hospitals across the world in order to help students like me understand their place in the medical field and get first-hand experience shadowing physicians. As you may know, getting serious shadowing experience here in the States is both extremely competitive and rigorously regulated. Yet, pre-med students are all but required to have shadowing experiences, along with unique extracurricular pursuits, to be accepted into medical school. The Atlantis Project satisfies both needs. I will have an opportunity with this program to: shadow international physicians, rotate weekly through a variety of specialties for 20 hours a week, go on group excursions to experience my host country’s culture, and volunteer to help tutor English to hospital staff.   

Today, I am hoping that you can help me continue to pursue my passion for medicine by helping me meet a goal of raising $5,000 to pay for the 6 week program and flights.  Whether that be by donating any amount from as little as$10, $20 or more or perhaps by creating an introduction to someone you know that would be interested in helping me fundraise the money for this investment in my future.
Once again, I cannot thank you enough for your prayers and support as I take the first steps in my pursuit of becoming a physician. 

I am truly grateful and appreciate your help!

Yours sincerely,
