Chapter 6: Volunteering overseas
Some veterinary graduates choose to work overseas as a volunteer, on an unpaid basis or a modest salary. These postings can be short and last for only a few weeks or can extend into several years.
Time spent working overseas can be a valuable experience. In addition to providing help and expertise to places and communities where resources may be minimal or non-existent, you can personally gain a lot from working in an environment very different from what you have experienced before.
