“This experience has been so rewarding and no doubt will remain the most memorable of my clinical year. I have gained confidence as a surgeon by honing old skills and learning new skills.”
– Sara Beard, Briana Grymonprez, Julie Nelson, Gosia Pajak, and Ariella Samson, Tanzania, Spay, Neuter, and Infectious Disease Control, 2016
“By the end of my first week I already thought I was in heaven – then we spent two days trying to dart and treat an injured leopard, and the end result was a once-in-a-lifetime chance for me to monitor his anesthetic levels in the field while seeing true wildlife medicine in play.”
– Gina Vecere, South Africa, Selati Wildlife Experience Program, 2017
“I had the opportunity to explore a different culture and country, observe a ‘day in the life of a zoo/wildlife veterinarian,’ and work with two more famous Brazilian veterinarians at Refugio and Parque Das Aves. Even with this trip only being two weeks, I somehow made connections in a field that desperately requires for me to have some.”
– Taylor Jones, Brazil, Study Abroad, 2017
