Starting in 2015 World Vets will be offering a personalized surgical training experience for recently graduated veterinarians, foreign veterinarians, in addition to veterinarians preparing for qualifying exams. This opportunity will provide one on one instruction (in English) in performing spay and neuter procedures and seeks to cater to the specific needs of participants.
Personalized surgical training is provided out of our Latin American Veterinary Training Center located in Granada, Nicaragua. Although a training facility, strict attention is paid to patient safety, comfort and appropriate pain management. Our center is also outfitted with modern equipment such as gas anesthesia, central oxygen, pulse oximeters and fluid pumps.
Only two participants will be accepted per week/session to ensure an intensive and personalized program. We are currently scheduling for the months of April, May, August through until December 2015. We are also booking sessions for 2016.
Participants are responsible for getting themselves to and from Nicaragua, in addition to the training center each day, providing their own lodging and meals as well as a World Vets participation fee.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please inquire by filling out the Personalized Surgical Training Inquiry Form.
This opportunity is also available to veterinary students, however, we first encourage them to consider our International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program before inquiring about personalized surgical training.
