Volunteer Registration to Close for March Opportunities!

Select volunteer positions are still open on some of our upcoming opportunities in March. If you have been considering joining a team, volunteer registration will close next month!

For students looking to get surgical or clinical experience over their spring break, our International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program is the perfect fit. Spring session dates with availability are:  March 21 – 28, 2015.

We also have opportunities for students, as well as vets and techs on veterinary field projects to Roatan, Honduras and Charlestown, Nevis. Both are small animal, spay/neuter, projects.

World Vets is Now Offering Personalized Surgical Training

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.

“Team Roatan” Successfully Delivered despite Adverse Weather Conditions

This past week World Vets had a team on the island of Roatan, Honduras to provide free veterinary services for companion animals. With the “wet season” apparently not quite over, they experienced a couple of downpours during clinic days. Nevertheless, many animals were still in attendance and our team was able to successfully deliver services despite adverse weather conditions. Sterilization surgeries as well as health consultations to diagnose and treat a variety of ailments were provided.

We`d like to thank World Vets volunteers and local partners for an outstanding effort, in addition to Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their continual support of these much needed campaigns. World Vets has been committed to improving the overall health and well being of animals on the island of Roatan since 2008.
