Ferrum College Junior Spends Summer in Portugal

FERRUM, VA, August 25, 2023 – Ferrum College junior Thabelo Nemulodi completed a three week summer internship in Viana de Castelo, Portugal with Atlantis, a shadowing program for pre-med students. Atlantis provides students the opportunity to shadow medical professionals in different areas of medicine abroad.

Atlantis has partnered with over 100 hospitals worldwide for this unique experience. Nemulodi worked at ULSAM – Hospital de Santa Luzia where she got to shadow three different departments: gastroenterology, obstetrics and gynecology, and anesthesiology.

As a Pre-Professional Health Sciences major with a pre-med emphasis, Nemulodi had been looking for internship opportunities to gain more experience. “I applied to multiple organizations; Atlantis happened to be one I had heard about from other students. I applied and got an interview call back. Soon after, I got offered a spot into the program,” she shared.
