Are you a veterinary student with an interest in wildlife medicine? Then the EAZWV Student Section is for you!
The Student Section welcomes undergraduate, doctoral and PHD students, interns and residents!
Our aim is to connect and support any students who want to get a foot into the door of captive and free-ranging wildlife medicine. As a Student Member, you are entitled to reduced fees for the annual Zoo and Wildlife Health Conference. In close collaboration with the Education Committee of the EAZWV we organize different events during the conference, such as the Students’ Night Out and the Student-Mentor-Mixer. This gives you a great opportunity to network with other students and professionals in the area, which is an essential part of getting started in this field.
During the conference you can also attend the Student's General Assembly, where we present everything the Student Section has been working on for the past year, as well as our future plans and important information. It's a great opportunity to get involved in the association and work in a team to give students the best opportunities.
In terms of practical knowledge, we offer once a year either a Student Workshop or a Student Summer School. It's always held in different european countries, to facilitate access to all students, and usually lasts 3 to 5 days. The last events have been really successful, with a great international spirit and the opportunity to learn from several specialists in different topics.
Finally, we know one of the main needs of students trying to get started in this area is finding places to do an externship and gain experience. That's why we are currently working on a list of Student Placements, so every student member can see the institutions that are available to receive externs or interns. You can check all details in Internships and Student Placements.
