A veterinary internship abroad is perfect for any student who is a pre-vet or interested in more hands-on experience abroad. Candidates can participate in international internships at Veterinary Hospitals, the Zoo, and local Animal Shelters or for non-profits fighting to preserve and educate about certain species. Don’t forget to start applying for an internship now. Spring 2020 internship placements are currently available at all of our locations. It’s one of the best times to travel abroad so don’t miss out.
Veterinary internships are available in almost all of our city programs: candidates intern at City Zoos in Uruguay, Animal Shelters in Madrid, Barcelona and Seville; the Madrid Zoo Aquarium; Small Animal Clinics in Mexico; tagging and rehabilitating injured marine Turtles in Uruguay; street animal attention in a modern, fully equipped Animal Clinica in Quito, Ecuador, and across all cities, we place in local non-profits fighting to preserve and educate about certain species.
We also have a NEW program in Quito, Ecuador for those interested in equine internships abroad! Shadow a traveling equine vet and do everything he does, from vaccinations to dental work to emergency surgeries. Interns will work side by side with the veterinarian in his clinic to take care of the animals that come in. Candidates have the chance to work directly with the animals and learn for example how to examine animals, give vitamin injections, give medicine, give parasite medicine, assist in smaller surgeries, clean wounds, do checkups, etc.
As the veterinarian also travels from time to time, interns will have the chance to join to visit, for example, an animal rescue center or animal shelter to do checkups, parasite control, medicate, and give vitamin injections to domestic wildlife.
Spots fill up fast in all locations, so apply early to secure your internship!
