Attention UF veterinary students!  If you’re interested in learning HQHVSN to help save the world (or at least the dogs and cats that are in it!), then Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program can help.

“High-quality, high-volume spay/neuter (HQHVSN) programs are efficient surgical initiatives that meet or exceed veterinary medical standards of care in providing accessible, targeted sterilization of large numbers of dogs and cats in order to reduce their overpopulation and subsequent euthanasia.”          

–Veterinary Task Force to Advance High-Quality, High-Volume Spay/Neuter, 2008

Thanks to a generous donor, Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program has ten $1,000 stipends available to support students who desire to hone their skills in this critically important area of practice.

We are currently accepting stipend applications from students who will complete two-week externships at either the Humane Alliance clinic in Asheville, North Carolina, or the First Coast No More Homeless Pets clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. Externships must be competed between May and December, 2012.

To apply, contact sheltermedicine@vetmed.ufl.edu for information.  Application deadline is March 5, 2012.
