IVSA runs two types of exchange programs, individual exchange and group exchange. Each year, vet students all over the world join on a journey to explore veterinary medicine in different cultural and social backgrounds. This is achieved by providing a network of locally and internationally active IVSA members that globally facilitate access to clinic and field exchange programs, which usually last a couple of weeks. Through our programme and opportunities, we aim to develop both culturally sensitive students and skilled veterinary students intent on shaping the future of vets. Our exchange programs are key promoter of intercultural understanding and cooperation among vet students and vet professionals, which much needed in our globalized world as IVSA believes.
