I strongly believe if you are considering the veterinary field, you should expand your experience globally just because animals are everywhere in the world. What is a better way than to do a semester abroad with Loop Abroad?
Ever since I came back, I get asked a lot "how was it?" but I do not have a concrete answer for that. These are things that one must experience, and I encourage you to.
My experience was amazing, I met so many people that share the same ideas/ love for animals. I got to experience veterinary clinical settings for a great variety of animals. Those three months of experience went by really quick! We were busy all the time with hands-on activities or lectures.
One of my favorite courses was at the Chiang Mai Night Safari. We got to shadow Thai vets doing their daily routines in wildlife animals. Such a variety of animals reminded me why I went abroad in the first place.
I feel like I am a step closer to my ultimate goal of becoming a doctor of veterinary medicine. The program help me improving my technical skills as well as a better understanding of veterinary medicine.
Thailand stole my heart in the first few days I was there. Everyone is so welcoming and helped me feel like I was home. I really cannot wait to be back someday!
Please do not hesitate to contact me for specific questions or more feedback. I understand that this is a big decision and trust me, it is worth it!
