In December 2011, World Vets held its grand opening of our Latin America Surgical Training Center located in Granada, Nicaragua. This center provides free surgical instruction and training opportunities for Latin American veterinarians and upper level veterinary students. We have since begun offering regular training sessions and have now launched its very own website! See Training Center Website
Throughout the year we also use the training center as a base of operations for our International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program. This program is geared towards North American, Australian and European students, though all are welcome, who wish to learn more about practicing veterinary medicine in a foreign country while also giving back to the local animal community.
