World Vets is looking to recruit licensed veterinarians for a unique opportunity in Nicaragua this summer. We seek veterinarians who are interested in a 2-4 week volunteer placement at our Latin American Veterinary Training Center located in Granada, Nicaragua.
This volunteer opportunity will have veterinarians work with English speaking veterinary students where they will provide guidance as well as instruction in performing spay and neuter surgery. Veterinarians will also take part in community outreach activities where health consultations and preventative health treatments are provided to rural animals living in outlying communities.There are typically 3 surgery days and 1 community outreach day scheduled per session. Veterinarians can expect to have 1.5 days for leisure and evenings free.
We have positions available for just 1 week or for as long as 4-6 consecutive weeks. Veterinarians are responsible for their own international airfare, travel and/or health insurance, dinner and snacks, in addition to any optional excursions that they may wish to take part in. Lodging, most meals (i.e. breakfast/lunch on work days) and in country transportation as it relates to the program are provided. Read more about the volunteer experience here
