Het doel van dit programma is om dierenartsen in de gelegenheid te stellen kennis en ervaring op te doen met en deel te nemen aan natuurbeheer en gezondheidsinterventies bij wilde dieren. Dit vormt ook de basis voor het begrijpen van de verspreiding en het beheersen van dierziekten. Een extra doelstelling is om u gelegenheid te bieden in Afrika een andere kant van de diergeneeskunde mee te maken. Het opdoen van kennis en ervaring waarmee u uw professionele ontwikkeling kan verruimen.


The purpose of this program is to provide an opportunity for practicing veterinarians to learn about, experience and participate in wildlife management and health interventions in free roaming wildlife populations in Africa. This also forms the basis of understanding the spread and management of wildlife diseases. An additional objective is to provide an opportunity to learn and experience in Africa a different side of veterinary science that can broaden one’s outlook and support professional development.
