Veterinary Semester Abroad

Loop Abroad is now accepting applications for the Spring 2018 semester of our "Veterinary Semester Abroad in Thailand". Apply now!

The semester is designed with pre-veterinary students in mind but is not limited to students in pre-vet programs. We focus on small, hands-on classes taught by US veterinarians (DVM) integrated into shelter, sanctuary, and clinic settings.

We know that spending a semester abroad can be daunting for pre-vet students and we are available to help answer all your questions about credit, financial aid, coursework, and all the details to make sure VSA is the perfect fit for you!

Program Highlights:

• Based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, a beautiful, bustling city rooted in an ancient culture and surrounded by amazing ecosystems yet with many wildlife in crisis.

• Two weeks learning about Asian elephants in a shelter clinic where you will observe and assist the veterinary team with everything from physical exams to basic healthcare

• Two weeks on Turtle Island, staying a few steps from the beach! Snorkel over the coral reefs surveying marine animal populations and assessing reef health. Learn from the local conservation experts at New Heaven's Reef Conservation Program. Search for local sea turtle and shark populations and help conserve their habitat!

• One week at a wildlife center learning about exotic veterinary medicine - from restraint, physical exams, to welfare and enrichment for a wide variety of species!

• Two-week practicum assisting in a companion animal clinic alongside Thai veterinarians

• Two-week Companion Animal Management course taught at Animal Rescue Kingdom, a Thai dog shelter, providing hands-on experience and case studies

The Veterinary Semester Abroad in Thailand is designed to enhance your pre-veterinary knowledge, skills, and experience. Learn how it can add to your Veterinary School application.
