World Vets Program Highlight:
International Training Opportunities 

At World Vets one of our main goals is to provide training and educational opportunities abroad meanwhile inspire a desire to help animals in need. In this newsletter we'd like to highlight our training program and the many opportunities that World Vets has for students as well as veterinary professionals.

All of our training programs are presently based at our Latin America Veterinary Training Center located in Nicaragua. Here we provide a brief summary of these opportunities and who they are available to.

Latin American Surgical Training
Our veterinary training center was conceptualized after recognizing the disparity that exists in veterinary education and in turn surgical skill that veterinarians in Latin America possess. The center was also founded on the principle that by having competent surgeons in this region of the world, that this would have a positive "trickle down effect" on safely controlling the population of small animals over the long term.

As such, the cornerstone of our training center is our free surgical training sessions provided to/for Latin American veterinarians and veterinary students. Fondation Brigitte Bardot has been an ongoing sponsor of this program since its inception in 2011.



Student Internship Program
We now offer a 4 week student internship. This opportunity caters to pre-veterinary and/or veterinary technology students, and facilitates hands on veterinary experience in both an international and clinical environment.  Learn more



Personalized Surgical Training (PST)
 
The PST experience is available for veterinary students, recently graduated veterinarians and/or veterinarians preparing for qualifying exams. The main objective of these training sessions is to improve skill and competence that will allow individuals to confidently, proficiently and efficiently complete surgical and anesthetic procedures.

International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program
The IVM Program is World Vets official student program. It is designed for veterinary, pre-veterinary and technician students who wish to gain clinical and practical experience while at the same time have a brief immersion into international veterinary medicine. As part of this program we also have teaching opportunities for DVMs and LVT's.
