Unique and exciting opportunities for Vietnamese Veterinary Surgeons

We are seeking 2 dynamic, enthusiastic qualified Vietnamese veterinary surgeons to join our bear and vet team. The positions will be based at our Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre (VBRC) in Tam Dao National Park, Vinh Phuc province. The positions are a broad-based one-year internship programme of flexible rotating clinical instruction beyond the professional degree (e.g., DVM) and may be extended for a further 12 months, after successful completion of the first year. The positions are structured to provide international standard practical experience in applying knowledge gained during veterinary college in a supervised environment. The aim of the programme is to prepare veterinarians with the skills and knowledge required to work in a sanctuary similar to VBRC, as Animals Asia works to deliver its mission of ending bear farming in Vietnam and providing sanctuary to rescued bears.
