Clinical Shadowing & Volunteering
in Greece this Summer.

Shadow in Larissa, Greece and gain over 50+ clinical observation hours, rotating through various departments and participating in lab research at the University of Thessaly and other select locations.

Open to all medical, pharmacy, dental as well as any "pre-" students of all disciplines (Greek language skills are not required).

What's included?

The Internship

  • Gain key experience, strengthen your medical school applications.
  • Elevate your career through our internship program.
  • Witness medical procedures firsthand and interact with healthcare professionals.
  • Gain insight into patient care and bedside manner.
  • Enrich your learning through rounds, conferences, and informal discussions while building your professional network.
  • When you’re done shadowing, reflective journaling promotes deep learning and self-improvement, with discussions among preceptors and peers enhancing the overall learning experience.

The Volunteering Project

  • This program offers an amazing opportunity for suitable applicants who are 17+ years old.
  • Work alongside qualified medical professionals and gain first-hand insight into the global healthcare system.
  • Open to those with experience in the field of medicine (including med-school and pre-med students).
  • Volunteers on this project will need at least an intermediate understanding of English to communicate effectively with patients and staff.
  • Naturally, all applicants must also have a genuine willingness to help, show drive + initiative, and bring a positive ‘can-do’ attitude.
  • We aim to offer guidance on personal confidence, foster social activities, facilitate discussions on future careers, and identify societal needs among the residents.
  • If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

During the Internship

  • Students shadow for 25+ hours each week in different hospital departments.
  • Includes surgical and non-surgical opportunities .
  • Some fields will be more engaging than others (and this varies from person to person), which is also what students will experience later on during their medical training.
  • Student-doctor ratio of 1:1 or 2:1.
  • Combine the joys of travel abroad with the invaluable experience of shadowing.

No knowledge of Greek language is required.

It was an awesome experience and Stavros was a really big help during the whole internship. I learned so much in a very short time and checked off boxes for lots of pre-med requirments!

This experience has been something I’ll never forget, both in terms of the memories I made with my group and the things I experienced at the hospital while shadowing. I am so grateful to have had this experience. I was able to experience not only the social scene in Larissa and explore the country in my free time, but also got structured group activities as well as hospital shadowing. I felt supported throughout the program and this program is something I wish I’d known about sooner.

This experience was one I will never forget. You learn so much in all aspects of the program. You get an accurate view of the medical field, and you become immersed in the culture surrounding you. I made so many new friends while I was there and we went on plenty of adventures. I would easily do this again. If you're even thinking about doing this, then go ahead. You won't find this experience anywhere else. This gave me a better understanding of what I want to do in the medical field.

I attended this program during my spring break. Although inexperienced, I had an incredible time gaining healthcare exposure while also making lasting connections. The doctors were all incredibly kind and willing to incorporate me into their busy days. Being able to follow them throughout their entire day helped me get a more complete understanding of a doctor's routine, something that is not too available in the United States. I think my favorite part of the program though was getting to shadow all the scheduled surgeries, getting our scrubs, and being a witness of this beautiful work. On the weekends we traveled to Athens and Skopelos. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a unique pre-med experience!
