For anyone dealing with the stressful summer internship process and looking for ways to gain experience in veterinary medicine, take a look at the Safari4u Veterinary Program, a veterinary volunteer program in South Africa. The program is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, offering volunteers opportunities to work with large, small, and exotic animals, explore various fields in veterinary medicine, gain clinical skills that are difficult to practice in the U.S., help animals in disadvantaged communities, and travel to an exotic country. For more information, check out Safari4u’s website (www.safari4uvet.com) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/safari4uvet)!
