This course aims to provide students an opportunity to build clinical skills in settings abroad. Working with local grassroots animal welfare organizations and pet owners in small communities, we will learn how to communicate with them to take medical histories and educate them on aspects of pet health and wellness, and learn more about the human/animal bond in other countries. Students will participate in sterilization surgery procedures with supervision and instruction of veterinarians. Participants will also have opportunities to learn about local cultures and veterinary issues in the areas visited.
