Put your knowledge into practice with this veterinary internship in the heart of Portugal. You will work alongside professional veterinarians and carry out various assignments with local abandoned or abused animals. You will deepen your knowledge and gain international work experience, and contribute to species conservation through your positive and lasting impact on local animals. You will be permanently supervised by an internship supervisor who will evaluate and follow your progress throughout your project.
In this program, trainees can apply the skills they have learned in real clinical cases and contribute to the protection of abandoned and abused animals. The program is open to both veterinary students and licensed veterinarians; there will always be a technical supervisor at the internship site.
Like all of our animal internship programs abroad, this project in Portugal allows you to gain university credits while contributing to the conservation of the region's wildlife.
Thus, this veterinary internship offer allows you to practice your skills and expand your knowledge, while creating an incredibly positive impact on the local community by contributing to the protection of animals on site.
Some examples of assignments:
- Follow-up and discuss clinical cases
