Learn and Travel……. stories from the vets!

learn and travelLast month started for the first time our project ” LEARN AND TRAVEL WITH VETS ON THE BALKANS”. Dr Andrey Ginchev from Bulgaria, working in Blue Cross veterinary clinic in city of Sofia, and Dr Cristian Badulescu, main vet and owner of Blue Point Vet veterinary clinic in city of Bucharest, Romania have done their externship at Clinica Veterinara Lago Maggiore – Dr Lugi Venco , Dr Luca Formaggini and Dr Mariangela De Franco. Both of them have stayed 2 weeks. I think is better they to speak about the adveture.

Dr Andrey Ginchev:

I have so many good things to say about this externship. Firstly, it was the best experience of my life! The doctors  are amazing,especially Dr Luca Formaginni and Doctor Luigi Venco –  the best doctors I ‘ve ever seen in my life.17309856_1747923415519034_2303429150324906549_n 17342975_1747923572185685_5866766753935364961_n

The team was very well organized,very welcoming and really friendly with me. I met a lot of people from Italy and had great time with them. I became more flexible to changes, more ambitious and more sociable. My desire to travel is increased. Also this practise  helps me to gain my confidence in my own abilities,so now I am more self – confident in my work.I improved my English language and also I learned a little bit Italian…,Grazie and Thank you!!!I hope to see my  Italian friends again.

Dr Cristian Badulescu with the team of the clinic

Before I go to Lago Maggiore Clinic, I looked on the internet to see what’s going on there. I saw them with equipment high-technology facilities. I saw that they are capable and do surgical maneuvers excellent and it’s a veterinary clinic with a very good reputation. I can therefore expect to find here and a little superciliousness, or even some superiority. But it was not so! I found wonderful people, full of positive energy. Highly trained people who know exactly what they do. But what I liked most is modesty and their openness to sharing information. They do not want to hide anything. If you know what questions to put, you get all the information you need. 17522631_1751933485118027_6444855593354748323_n 17498712_1751933001784742_8726199192797128569_nI had the honor to talk to Luca Formaggini, Luigi Venco and Giorgio Romanelli. They are true celebrities in the world of veterinary medicine in Italy. I talked a lot about a lot. The impression to me of all is that all are governed by modesty and good will. So, I thank you Vets on the Balkans for this oportunity to meet great people! Great job! Bright future!17626459_1751932908451418_3868390825708698876_n 17554387_1751934088451300_4726607108209581561_n

And of course the opinion of Dr Luigi Venco:

It ‘s Always a great experience to meet and work with enthusiastic and motivated people like Dr. Andrey Ginchev and Dr Cristian Badulescu. Exchanging knowledge and experiences and find to be friends at the end. Thanks Andrey and Cristian! Thank you Vet on the Balkans!

The project intends to assist and support the veterinarians from The Balkans in their desire to upgrade their knowledge and experience in veterinary medicine. They will visit different clinics which are included in the project. The idea is to go directly into practice, to upgrade their own knowledge and experience, to advance their level of practice and generally the veterinary practice on the Balkans.

Goals

  2. Improve health status of the animals and stop transmitting of some diseases;
  3. Improve the financial status of veterinarians by learning different opportunities of management of veterinary clinic and acquiring new skills;
  4. Better understanding of the meaning of the words “hand by hand we all will be better”;
  5. Create contacts and future collaborations.

We have agreements with different clinics and they will be involved to provide good environment for education and practice:

Financial sources

 

The financial sources will be from donations (vets, clinics, companies). We will cover accommodation and trip expenses. The companies can pay directly for a vet (their client), elected by them.

Student Association in Veterinary Medicine from Timisoara, Romania…… BRAVO ROMANIA!!!!

ASMVT stands for the Student Association in Veterinary Medicine from Timisoara, Romania.

We are a little nonprofit organization founded in 2008, our members are students from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and our goals are to provide a fun way to connect to our community, our faculty members, our student colleagues and of course, a way to learn more for our craft  of saving animals.

We also have a chapter in IVSA, the International Veterinary Student Association, so we have a wide opening to the world of Veterinary Medicine.

ASMVT is having a number of events that are basically the core of our student experience:

Annual Science Competition

Annual Science Competition

We invite our colleagues to make groups of 4 and compete with each other, in a quizz-like competition and win a lot of great awards, like an otoscope, stethoscope, thermometer, or a basic surgical kit, a lot of things that a future veterinarian would need in his practice.

Workshops

Workshops

We organize workshops with different topics with the help of our teachers and we volunteer for workshops organized by RoSAVA and other veterinarians from the city.

Spay/ Neuter campaign

Spay/ Neuter campaign

We want to help our community by reducing the population of stray dogs by acting accordingly and learning in the process. We’ve been helped by some of our teachers and veterinarians from Timisoara.

Student exchanges with IVSA

Student exchanges with IVSA

We have annual student exchanges with other IVSA chapters. The exchange means that a group of students from our chapter goes to visite another country and another Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, for one week and assimilates the whole experience: going to classes, learning, living and partying like a local student. After this, the chapter that hosted the first part of the exchange, comes to visite us, being our guests. This is the way that lifelong acquaintance and friendships are being made.

co

Student symposium

Student symposium

 

Every year we organise a symposium for our students to present their scientific works, consisting in reports or case studies in different subjects.

Pet adoption fair

Pet adoption fair

We are collaborating with several shelters for stray dogs and volunteers who foster abandoned dogs and cats, so that we can organize a fair for the families to come and adopt the perfect pet for their home. These are a few from the lucky ones!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every year, we look forward to have more students signed up for the “ ASMVT experience” and we are challenging ourselves to have new exciting activities, beside our already well known annual ones.
