VETERINARY PLACEMENT

Whether you are currently a high school student considering a career in veterinary medicine, an undergraduate, or on a career break, interning as a veterinary intern will allow you to gain invaluable experience of vaccinations, operations, laboratory work, post-mortems, meat inspections and the routine treatment of domestic farm animals and pets.

Ghana, West Africa, is a wide expanse of mostly low plains. Its climate is hot and tropical with pockets of dry or humid areas in certain parts of the country. A portion of the land is used for farming and the welfare of domestic animals is an essential for rural development.

Shadowing local vets will give you the opportunity to observe diseases that have been eradicated in the West and will also give you a better understanding about the problems that vets and farmers face. By showing initiative and a willingness to get involved, you will benefit from this truly rewarding experience.

INTERNS / VOLUNTEERS RESPONSIBILITY

As an intern / volunteer in Ghana on one of our veterinary internships, you can provide effective and practical help working on a variety of tasks. When you arrive at work on your first day, you will be assigned a supervisor who will advise and support you throughout your internship; of course our staff is always on hand too.

In Ghana, PHIVOG interns / volunteers work in city clinics. In the mornings this involves dealing with pets such as dogs and cats, but many of the patients are small back garden livestock like goats and chickens.

In the afternoon there are sometimes opportunities to go out into the field to visit farms. You will be involved in administering vaccinations, observing and perhaps assisting in operations, laboratory work, post mortems and routine treatments. You’ll learn how to handle different animals and will see examples of diseases and conditions that have almost been eradicated in developed countries. Your input will be greatly encouraged and appreciated.
