The first of its kind in the Middle East, Equine Veterinary Medical Center (EVMC) comprises an equine referral hospital, veterinary diagnostic laboratory, and clinical research laboratory. EVMC is a member of Qatar Foundation and is located within Qatar Foundation’s world-class equine facilities at Al Shaqab. EVMC is staffed by board-certified veterinarians and researchers, applying advanced veterinary techniques and procedures in the treatment of equine patients. The research program aims to advance veterinary science through collaborations and clinical research projects. Specialized services at EVMC include surgery, internal medicine, theriogenology, sports medicine and rehabilitation, dentistry, diagnostic imaging and anesthesiology/pain management. EVMC also provides 24/7 emergency service. EVMC is equipped with the latest imaging technology, including a 3T MRI, CT-scan, nuclear scintigraphy, digital x-rays, endoscopy, and ultrasound.

Please provide further info about your opportunities Since its inception, and in line with Qatar Foundation’s vision and objectives, EVMC has lent its support to a plethora of educational and research institutions not only within Qatar but also across the globe. EVMC hosts students, veterinarians and research professionals at its state-of-the-art facilities. Externs can engage in projects across all functions of the facility, including the hospital, research laboratory, diagnostic laboratory and administration. EVMC are proud to work closely with the local and international community, establishing itself as a center of excellence and pioneering research. In addition to this, foal sitting opportunities are also available at EVMC. Foal sitting is a volunteer opportunity provided by many universities and hospitals with an Equine Neonatal Intensive Care unit. This group of volunteers provide round the clock assistance to those caring for the sickest of neonates. Responsibilities include making sure that the foal is comfortable and supported when they are unable to stand, making sure IV lines and monitoring equipment remains attached to the foal, and assisting the doctors and nurses with care such as feeding and grooming. Volunteers experience life within a busy ICU while they play a supporting role in making sure these intensive care babies receive the 24/7 supervision and support they need to have the best chance to thrive. Requirements for members of the foal team include a minimum of age of 18 years, independent transport to and from EVMC, and a strong interest in horsemanship, or alternatively a strong biomedical interest. One nurse will be the scheduling focal point for the volunteers, and will invite foal sitters to attend when a foal requiring support is admitted to the hospital via a WhatsApp group.
