Working as a Veterinary Medicine & Animal Care Intern in South America
As a Veterinary Medicine & Animal Care intern in South America, you will provide effective and practical help to local veterinary and animal care professionals at placements in Villa Rumipal and Cordoba, Argentina and Cochabamba, Bolivia. As an intern, you will be involved in many areas, such as feeding animals, and cleaning and repairing enclosures. Interns also have the opportunity to assist the specialists in retraining the animals to live independently, helping them to improve skills they may have lost, or never fully developed, while in captivity.
During your internship, punctuality and professionalism are highly expected. Interns are usually required to work an average of 30 hours per week. Knowledge of Spanish is not necessary to participate.
Whatever your level of experience, your input at your placement will be greatly encouraged and appreciated. Take the opportunity to make your own recommendations, or explain practices back home. Your adaptability and willingness to learn will be appreciated by your colleagues, enabling you to truly engage yourself as an active member of the team.
