Veterinarians Without Borders - Student Program

In this program, we select veterinary students who are motivated and suited to working on global animal/public health challenges such as emerging diseases, poverty-reduction and sustainable livelihoods. Selected students are placed in a team with their peers and work on an international development project for three months. We aim to provide our participants with a unique learning opportunity that will arm them with the knowledge and skills to contribute in a meaningful way to global public health issues upon graduation.
