Continuing Education provided for veterinarians in Paraguay

Since 2014 World Vets has supported the skills training and development of veterinary practitioners in Paraguay. We recently sent our lead veterinary instructor from World Vets Latin American Training Center to provide continuing education to our local veterinary partners in Asuncion. It was a full week of high quality instruction in surgical techniques and safe anesthesia! We thank our hosts ADOPTAME con amor y responsabilidad for their dedication to provide quality veterinary care for the animals of Paraguay.

Seeking DVM’s Interested in “Cultural Clinical” Experience Summer 2017

World Vets has a unique opportunity for DVM’s looking for a “cultural clinical” experience. A “cultural clinical” experience may be characterized as an opportunity for a veterinarian to volunteer their skills abroad meanwhile gain a cultural experience in the process.

We have such an opportunity at our Latin America Veterinary Training Center located in Granada, Nicaragua. This opportunity coincides with our International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program where vets are involved in clinical activities, which include providing surgical instruction to English speaking veterinary students in addition to participating in outreach campaigns that are set up in outlying rural communities.

Both as part of this program, as well as outside of the program, many opportunities exist to learn about and experience the local culture as well as study and/or practice Spanish.There are many Spanish schools in Granada where volunteers can formally study with a tutor, though many informal settings present themselves simply through participation in World Vets activities. For instance, socializing with World Vets Nicaraguan staff and local pet owners.

This “cultural clinical” opportunity is available for both a short and long term duration. It is currently being offered during the months of June and July 2017. What’s more, this opportunity is RACE – approved for continuing education credit.

The minimum time requirement is 1 week (7 nights) and the maximum duration is 8 weeks. There is a minimum fee of $250 USD/week, which includes your lodging and most meals. Learn more

*This opportunity is also available to licensed veterinary technicians
