We help vet students get EMS credits without travelling, by presenting self-paced online courses in collaboration with wildlife veterinarians, ecologists, and game reserves in South Africa.

About Wildlife Vet Online:
These courses are designed to be online versions of selected wildlife medicine experiences available in South Africa. We’ve collaborated with projects to create a practical road trip in the form of the Wildlife Vet Experience, an exclusive package just for training vets and vet nurses that is both affordable and of high quality. It’s built around our principles of collaboration, credibility, and accessibility by connecting communities and exceptional projects and experts while not sacrificing some of the fantastic food and accommodation that South Africa has to offer. In this way, we’re able to provide both practical and theoretical instruction, covering veterinary treatment as well as sanctuary management and wildlife conservation.

A fantastic course for any big cat aficionado! Dr. Rogers provides a wide range of information about lion medicine and biology- a must need for anyone looking to work with the species. Also, this module has an extremely interesting wound management study. Very educational to see Dr. Rogers handle an emergency case in the field!

Absolutely loved this course! It was super informative and engaging, especially because it contained some real life case studies. I really liked how clinical the course was, and how Peter explains the drugs he uses, especially the anaesthetic drugs, in great detail.
