Japan Renews Training Program for Asian Veterinarians

Twelve veterinarians, selected from across Asia, began specialized training at leading universities in Japan last month.

Doctors chosen for this year-long program are educated in the latest information and technologies, focused on farm animal medicine.  After completion of training, veterinarians return to their communities to lead local advancements in the control and eradication of disease.

Opportunities are organized by the Japanese Veterinary Medical Association (JVMA), with funding from the Japanese Racing Association (JRA). This is a revival of a JVMA program that successfully provided training to over 200 veterinarians from 14 Asian countries between 1993-2003.
