Itinerary: The Elephant Bonus Week takes place at an elephant sanctuary in the Bangkok area of Thailand. The Elephant Bonus week group will travel together to Bangkok (included in tuition). The group, which has a maximum of 12 students, will work with an elephant vet at the sanctuary helping to treat, examine, care for, observe, and maintain the elephants who live there. This will be a chance to learn up-close about elephant medicine from an elephant vet. You will be hands-on with the elephants and may also assist other animals who live at the sanctuary.

We will live at the sanctuary Monday - Friday (after arriving Sunday evening) and you will earn 40 veterinary hours working with your vet that week in this amazing setting.

On Saturday, we will say goodbye to the elephants and spend a day visiting the sights in Bangkok on a tour. We will return to Chiang Mai to depart on Sunday. All meals, travel within Thailand, housing, and activities are included in your tuition. Adding the Elephant Bonus Week will not increase your international airfare.
