World Vets is now offering an internship opportunity for students at its Latin America Veterinary Training Center, located in Granada, Nicaragua. This opportunity is specifically geared towards pre-veterinary and/or veterinary technician students, as there is no surgical component involved for participants.
Internships are offered throughout the year and are for a minimum of one month (4 weeks), though can last up to 2-3 consecutive months. Interns will serve an auxiliary role in day to day clinic activities. For instance, helping to prep patients for surgery, monitoring vitals during surgery and tending to patients in recovery. There will also be other tasks and/or activities that interns may be involved with depending on the events scheduled during their internship.
During the month of August, World Vets was in Central America, South America and Eastern Europe carrying out large scale operatives for small animals. We had veterinary teams in Nicaragua, Peru and Albania where over 700 spay/neuter surgeries were performed by our dedicated volunteers.
We wish to thank Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their support of these endeavors, our local partners collaboration, in addition to our veterinary teams passion and tireless efforts. Hundreds of animals benefited from these campaigns and we are extremely grateful for everyone’s contribution in realizing this.
