At Al Barsha Veterinary Clinic, we understand the need for school students to fulfill community service hours with different companies/businesses. ABVC offers the opportunity for a number of students to fullfill their community service in our clinic!
While attending our clinic for community services, students will be exposed to the following impressions/emotions:
- Day-to-day routine in a veterinary clinic
- Neglected and stray animal care
- Final care of animals
- All sorts of diagnostic tests
- Intensive care
- Isolation cases
- Travel information for pets
- Customer service
- Telephone routine and appointment scheduling
- Experience team work and collaborating with colleagues
Also, students are required to assist in/with;
- Cleaning cages
- Cleaning floors
- Preparing cages for new patients
- Preparing food for in-patients
- Helping clients carrying bags
- Assisting in general
- TLC for strays
Due to the enormous popularity of Veterinary Clinic work for community service, we advise you to request your school if you can do the hours at a different time as the set school time for community service, in order for us to accommodate more students over the year.
To be eligible to perform these community services at Al Barsha Veterinary Clinic, we require the following:
- A written letter of motivation
- A fully filled in application form
- A community service request well in advance of the start of the service hours. (We keep a list of interested students). This enables us to prepare a student plan in which the student will be able to gain the most experience. This way the community service is beneficiary for both parties.
- A consent form signed by the parents prior to the start of the community service time.
- Copy of the current medical insurance policy and liability coverage prior to the start of the community service time.
Each student should be 12 years of age or older!
Also, we like to draw your attention to the following to make sure that your community service will be beneficial to both yourself and ABVC:
Students with known allergies or are frightened of animals are requested not to apply. All students should be well motivated, inquisitive, have a helpful disposition and be receptive to advise and on-the-job coaching. Animal handling will not be part of the learning experience ! Al Barsha Veterinary Clinic reserves the right to refuse students for this program. Al Barsha Veterinary Clinic can not accommodate more then 1 student at a time.
