Globe-trotting vets start new exchange program



A new exchange program for veterinarians has been launched by Merck Animal Health, giving 10 vets the opportunity to visit clinics in other countries and share their knowledge and experience.

For the first year of the  Nobivac Global Vet Exchange Program, ten veterinarians from China, Japan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States will visit each other’s clinics to experience working in a new clinic in a different country. The participating veterinarians will share their experiences through blog entries and videos on Dr Link Welborn, of Tampa, Florida, USA, and Dr Roeland Wessels, of the Netherlands, will officially launch the program when they travel to a clinic in Japan this month.

“The Global Vet Exchange Program will allow veterinarians like me to discover, compare, and contrast the way I work in my own country and practice,”  Dr Wessels said. “I am excited to meet fellow veterinarians and share our knowledge to help improve the care of companion animals.”

Karin Jager, of Merck Animal Health, said the exchange would help veterinarians learn new ideas and share best practices for improving animal care.

“Through this program, Merck Animal Health aims to offer a rewarding learning experience, not only for the veterinarians participating in the exchange, but also for those following through blogs and videos that will be shared online.”
