Delivering free clinical training courses to regions where it's not readily accessible or affordable
The VetTrain Program was launched by Vets Beyond Borders in 2009, in collaboration with the Animal Welfare Board of India and the Ministry of Environment & Forests (Government of India), to provide clinical training to veterinary personnel working with animal birth control and anti-rabies (ABC-AR) projects in India. Since that time, hundreds of veterinarians, veterinary nurses and humane animal handlers have completed VetTrain courses in India and several other countries in the region.
The VetTrain model is now widely respected and acknowledged as being the most successful training initiative of its kind in India. VBB recently broadened the scope of VetTrain, so that it is positioned to offer training in a range of clinical topics of relevance to veterinary personnel working with animal welfare projects around the globe. It also assists veterinary colleges that have difficulty sourcing and retaining teaching staff, due to location or financial constraints.
