University of Crete Medical Internships

medical_internships1Medical internships sponsored by the Pancretan Endowment FundTwo to three American students of Cretan descent who currently attend medical schools in the United States are eligible to participate in the summer internship program at the University of Crete in Heraklion.

This unique program, spearheaded by Professor Dr. Yiannis Melissas and backed by the Pancretan Endowment Fund, allows young aspiring doctors-to-be to live, work, and interact with the people of Crete for an extended period of time. It is hoped that this experience helps re-establish the students’ connections to the land and customs of their Cretan forefathers.
