Global Veterinary Assistance Team was founded by Dr. Bruce Langlois DVM. GVAT is the culmination of years of experience in all aspects of veterinary medicine. Dr. Langlois has a bachelors degree in Dairy Science, and has treated all species of livestock in many locations around the world. He developed a course, and written a book called Community Based Animal HealthCare worker. This course has taught Maassi, Wapashani, and Makushi tribes. He also has pioneered many techniques to vastly improve efficiency in spay and neuter procedures. He has taught these technqiues, and used them to hold spay neuter clinics in North, Central and South America, as well as the Carribbean, Africa, the Middle East and in the south Pacific. Often these spay neuter clinics are held as a mash type clinic, and Dr. Langlois has written a manual on running an efficient clinic.
GVAT expeditions welcomes volunteers in the veterinary field, including veterinarians, vet techs and vet assistants. GVAT expeditons are typically in remote locations, and typically are for about 1 week in duration. Most expeditions will include 1-2 days of adventure exploring the local area. Volunteers are required to pay for transportation to the expedition, but typically local transportation will be covered, as well as most meals and lodging. The work days are often long, but always rewarding. If you have an interest in join us on an expedition, please email Dr. Bruce Langlois at firstname.lastname@example.org
