Opportunities for veterinarians and veterinary students


Building veterinary workforce with global perspectives, including those with experience of working for international organisations such as OIE and engaging in international development or research projects, has been a long-standing challenge for Members. The OIE makes much efforts to raise awareness of veterinarians and veterinary students on the opportunities for engaging in the field of global health security and the key concepts such as One Health concept. Further, the OIE organises and participates in relevant events such as symposiums and internships, to enhance visibility of its activities among veterinarians and students of its Members.

Collaboration with IVSA

Agreement between the OIE andĀ IVSA (International Veterinary Students’ Association) was signed in May 2014, to collaborate on issues of interest, namely:

  • to develop dialogue and identify areas of common interest between the veterinary profession and veterinary students;
  • to develop cooperation between the OIE and the IVSA Standing Committee on One Health;
  • to increase standards relating to veterinary education worldwide;
  • to improve animal health and welfare;
  • to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas between veterinary students and the veterinary profession, including the updating of veterinary education and the accreditation of the Veterinary Education Establishments;

Under the framework, the OIE/IVSA invites each other to international meetings organised to address areas of common interest, and exchange our point of view on various issues of common interest.

Under the same framework, the IVSA appoints OIE Junior Ambassadors to act as intermediaries between the OIE and veterinary students across the world through the IVSA.
