Fellowship hosts help shape the future of veterinary care
AO VET faculty members have a unique opportunity to help shape the future of veterinary care by offering AO VET Fellowship opportunities at their clinics or practices. AO VET Fellowship host clinics and practices provide young, active veterinary surgeons interested in orthopedics and musculoskeletal disorders with additional experience in the AO techniques encountered in day-to-day surgical referral practice.
To maximize the fellowship experience, fellows apply directly to the institution that best matches their level of experience, and the host institution or practice decides whether to accept the applicant and the duration of the fellowship. Acceptance by the institution/practice is mandatory before the AO VET Fellowship applicant can submit application forms and request an AO VET fellowship, which brings with it a CHF 500 per week stipend to help cover living expenses. Most AO VET Fellowships are 2–12 weeks long.
