Now Scheduling Personalized Surgical Training | Fall & Winter 2016

World Vets is now offering a personalized surgical training experience for veterinary students, 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 September, October, November and December 2016. We are also booking sessions in January and February 2017.

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.

While this opportunity is available to veterinary students, we first encourage them to consider our International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program before inquiring about personalized surgical training.

IVM Program Spring Session Results

WorldVetsGroup19During the whole month of March, World Vets operated its International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program out of its Training Center facility located in Granada, Nicaragua.This program is specifically designed for veterinary, pre-veterinary and technician students who wish to gain clinical and practical experience, in addition to immersion within the field of international veterinary medicine. This program also provides volunteer opportunities for licensed veterinarians as well as licensed veterinary technicians as instructors.

As a result of this program, 214 spay/neuter surgeries were performed (during the month of March) on community owned animals that were in need of the operation.  These much needed spay/neuter services, as well as any additional medical treatments, were provided free of charge to pet owners and the community.

 

World Vets International Veterinary Medicine Program has begun

A new program that World Vets has initiated this year, an International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program, is now well underway. This program is specifically geared towards students. It has been designed for those who are currently enrolled at an academic institution in pre- veterinary, veterinary and/or veterinary technician related studies.

Simply put, World Vets IVM Program provides students with the opportunity to experience veterinary medicine in a foreign country. As part of this program, students have the opportunity to not only learn new skills but be able to put those newly acquired skills to work. Students are involved in multiple clinical environments performing duties related to sterilization surgery as well as health clinics providing health exams and preventative care, in addition to field opportunities with horses.

Furthermore, this program also seeks to inspire its student participants to continue to give back to the international animal community once they have completed their studies.

Our IVM program is based out of our Latin American Surgical Training Center in Granada, Nicaragua. It is fully equipped with all modern equipment such as gas anesthesia, central oxygen, pulse oximeters and fluid pumps. We’d like to extend our many thanks to Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their support of this center.

The services that are provided during this program are provided free of charge to community animals in need of veterinary assistance. To read more about this program, please click here
