Are you interested in international travel or study opportunities, or providing veterinary service in—or much needed supplies to—under-served areas around the world? Veterinary medicine offers many opportunities to connect with other cultures and other countries. From training and educational programs to hands-on service projects in disadvantaged areas across the world, veterinarians and other veterinary professionals have myriad opportunities to participate as citizens in the global community.
Whether you're looking for international travel/study opportunities, foreign service, or charities that help fund important veterinary programs across the globe, the AVMA has something for you. We hope the links on this page will help you find the opportunity that best suits your interests. If you know of an international veterinary service or educational opportunity that is not listed on these pages, please email us to let us know about it.
