As a veterinarian, you possess an abundance of skill and knowledge. Why not share some of what you know with an international veterinary exchange student who is looking for what could potentially be the experience of a lifetime in a place far from home?
The Student American Veterinary Medical Association, in conjunction with the International Veterinary Student Association, is updating its database of U.S. veterinarians willing to host international veterinary exchange students. Their goal, simply put, is to make it easier to share the opportunities we have here in the U.S. with international students seeking more education and even a bit of adventure.
You can share the excellence of your practice or veterinary position with a student who may not have experienced the opportunities and possibilities that you can help open up for them here. Your clients and community will admire your mentorship and outreach efforts. You can serve as a role model and possibly make a new friend for life. Chances are good that you’ll even learn a few things, as well.
No matter how you look at it, it’s a win-win situation. Reaching out to an international veterinary exchange student will enrich your life, your outlook and your horizons, and you will make an indelible impact on the life of a veterinary student.
Want to get involved? The process is easy. Sign up your clinic today and open your doors to an international veterinary student who will thank you for the opportunity.
