For Your Information

Cornell veterinary students are benefiting from international experience that ties coursework in language, culture, and research to hands-on fieldwork. They are able to spend eight weeks in Indonesia, Uganda, or the Republic of Congo to experience first-hand how the health of wildlife, domestic animals and people - and the health of the environment - are all deeply interconnected.
