One to two DVM/one to two RVT volunteers needed for each of the following COVID-safe clinics.

February 17, 2022

Indigenous communities have been hard hit when it comes to veterinary care because of COVID-19.  The Community Healthcare Partnership Program has been successful in implementing low-risk, contactless clinics.  As we are trying to schedule our fall activities, we’re looking for additional DVMs and RVTs to assist us in our work.  We will be doing both wellness and spay/neuter services with our team of senior students.  If you have an interest in serving these communities and teaching students, please let us know.  We dedicate one of our surgical stations as high volume, so are looking for volunteers there too! 

There is orientation provided, and if you have a license to practice, you can participate! Accommodations and food provided.

For more information or to volunteer please contact chpp@uoguelph.ca
