Large animal medicine experience

I thought the class was really fun and well thought-out, and each experience we had was relevant to the topic of the class. My TA was really engaging and did her best to make every moment worthwhile, and I enjoyed every part of the trip.

Palp-amazing!

I absolutely adored this whole trip. It's extremely inclusive and much more hands-on than I thought it was going to be. I mean I figured we were going to do some kind of hands-on action but I mean in the states you're not allowed to touch the animals unless you've got all kinds of certifications. Fortunately we were allowed to touch everything -- in fact we got in trouble when we didn't! You don't need to tell me twice. The lessons they teach really stick because it's not a notes kind of class; yes there are a few days of classwork but your education is truly the field work. For me this was excellent because I'm an extremely kinesthetic learner so being able to do the things they were teaching made it stick much better for me.

Amazing experience I will remember for a lifetime

It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The program is great, Dr.T and Reuben are great, I would recommend this for anyone, not just those that are planning on going into vet medicine. Just the people you meet and the experience is worth it.

Large animal vet practices in the tropics

The course was amazing in terms of hands on experience! The ability to gain surgical experience is valuable since the opportunities to do so in the US are limited, if available at all. The days were filled with not only vet med experiences, but also free time to go to the town/ market, go on excursions, and of course take a much needed nap! This course was worth every penny!

Jackson Balcom's Review

I am very happy with my decision to participate in this study abroad trip. I gained so much knowledge by taking the class that will be beneficial to me in the future. Above all, this trip gave me a boost in motivation to work hard so that I can reach my dream of becoming a vet.
