World Vets: Volunteer Opportunity for Veterinarians

From, World Vets:

Attention veterinarians. We are looking for a few good vets to help out with our student program in Nicaragua this summer. Must be experienced with spay/neuter and enjoy working with vet students. Requires a one week commitment and we have openings during select weeks during June and July. Its an incredible experience! Check out all the details below and email us if you are interested.

Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program is a student program where licensed veterinarians with at least one year of clinical experience can provide surgical instruction to veterinary students. DVM instructors will work one-on-one with students to teach spay and neuter surgery.  You will be teaching students your real world techniques along with a few guidelines from World Vets.  

There are typically 5-6 veterinarians and 10-12 veterinary students per session. Volunteer vets will work one on one with 1-2 students at a time (similar to mentoring students on a preceptorship).  Our lead veterinarians (Nicaraguan and North American) will provide orientation and be there throughout the program.    

No prior teaching experience is required however you must be comfortable and competent in performing and teaching basic spay and neuter surgery.  
Veterinarians are not expected to provide lectures or large group instruction. During community outreach, vets will work alongside students and Nicaraguan vets to do basic health consults and administer preventive healthcare treatments while sharing knowledge and basic techniques with students.  

We strive to create a low stress environment for teaching and learning while taking great care of our patients!
