Australian Wildlife Health Centre

The Australian Wildlife Health Centre offers one of the most sought after student veterinary placements for wildlife health.

On average, fifteen fourth or fifth year veterinary students are offered placements every year. Students are mostly from Australian Universities, but international students also seek these positions. Students study wildlife care, from husbandry, to handling techniques, to emergency medicine and major surgery.

Lectures are held at universities and wildlife or zoo conferences. Participants contribute to many professional veterinary or wildlife journals and are renowned as experts in the field of Australian wildlife healthcare. Knowledge continues to be built through continuing wildlife veterinary practice and on-going research which positions them as the cutting-edge of wildlife veterinary care. Visit for more information.
