World Vets IVM Program in Ecuador this Summer!

World Vets International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program is our official student program. It is a surgical and veterinary training program specifically for veterinary, pre-veterinary and technician students who wish to gain clinical as well as practical veterinary experience. In addition to surgical instruction (provided to veterinary students), students will participate in a multi-disciplinary veterinary program and cultural experience that not only will enhance their education, but will also give them a broader understanding of international veterinary medicine.

The IVM Program is typically held in Granada, Nicaragua at World Vets Latin America Veterinary Training Center. However, this summer it will be offered in Otavalo, Ecuador! The program will be run by the same great staff and the one on one veterinary training and experience will also be the same. See summer session dates and student vacancies here
