Veterinary Student Externships

ShareSilent Heroes welcomes eight veterinary student externs to our projects in Africa for 2012! Each student will spend several weeks experiencing life as a veterinarian/conservationist in-training at one of our 11 projects in Africa, where students will become immersed in caring for animals, participating in research to benefit the project, and learning the challenges unique to international veterinary medicine in a developing country.

Several students received scholarships for their participation in the extern program, and many students will conduct valuable research to benefit the projects, as well as to contribute to the pool of greater scientific knowledge related to wildlife conservation and One Health medicine in Africa. Silent Heroes will highlight the work of each student in E-news bites to come, and will be sharing their personal experiences through blogs and pictures that we will make available later this summer. Follow along with our externs on their adventures in Africa, and be a part of the excitement as they care for orphan elephants, immobilize rhinos, bleed buffalos, vaccinate village dogs, educate villagers about humane care of donkeys, and protect the endangered mountain gorillas!

Silent Heroes accepts applications to our veterinary student externship program on a year-round basis, and we offer placement at nine of our 11 veterinary and wildlife projects in Africa. For more information please contact Dr. Adams at:
