Whether you are considering a career in veterinary medicine or are already a qualified vet, our Veterinary Medicine in Ghana project will provide you with invaluable work experience. You’ll get the chance to shadow and assist local vets and will get involved in activities such as vaccinations, operations, laboratory work, post-mortems, meat inspections and the routine treatment of domestic pets and farm animals.

You will learn how to handle different animals and will see examples of diseases and conditions that have almost been eradicated in developed countries.  As a volunteer, you can provide effective and practical help working on a variety of tasks and by showing initiative and a willingness to get involved, you will benefit from this truly rewarding experience.

As part of this project, you will spend each morning working in a veterinary clinic in either Accra or the Akuapem Hills and will see plenty of pets such as dogs and cats, but many of your animal patients will be small back garden livestock such as goats and chickens.

In the afternoon there are occasionally opportunities to go out into the field to visit various farms where you will be involved in administering vaccinations, as well as observing and assisting in operations. Your input will be greatly appreciated and encouraged.
