This program is open to Vet school students (those currently enrolled in vet school, entering vet school in the fall, or having graduated just before the program begins).
Spend two weeks at an Elephant sanctuary working hands-on with a US elephant vet to learn about elephant medicine and elephant veterinary care. You will have specialized instruction in caring for elephants and assist in providing treatments to elephants each day.
If you want to be a zoo vet or want experience with elephants, this is the rare chance to get experience while learning hands-on in a small group of vet students led by an experienced vet. We will live at the sanctuary. One fun day is included in a local small town, including tourist activities.
Credit and financial aid are available.
