Join us for a veterinary medicine experience in Costa Rica and see what being a vet is all about: large and small animal medicine, husbandry, pathology and surgery — in paradise.

Assist with local spay/neuter programs. Volunteer at local animal clinics. Plus attend lectures on topics such as anatomy, immunology, diagnostics, pathology and animal nutrition. Take breaks for your vet work to go whitewater rafting, zip lining and hiking through the lush jungles of Costa Rica.

Setting Description:
Covered in rainforest. Surrounded by wildlife. Ripe for hands-on achievement. In this green volcanic country, wild vervet monkeys play in the interior rainforest. Hummingbirds flutter all the way up the canopy. Sloths slowly meander from tree to tree. And those are just the outdoor animals. With its rolling hills, volcanic peaks and incredible rainforests, Costa Rica facilitates personal growth and professional veterinary development in paradise.
