VOLUNTEER NEEDS:
This is a standard RAVS medical and surgical field teaching clinic. Volunteers of all types are encouraged to apply.   No prior field experience required.  Veterinarians, veterinary technicians/assistants and support volunteers are particularly needed.  We will be running two separate one-week clinics at this location.  Volunteers may apply to participate in one or both weeks.

ARRIVAL:
We will meet in the parking lot at the designated meeting location and caravan to the clinic site as a group.   You must be ready to depart together at the time indicated.  Please have vehicles fueled and any rest stop or shopping needs complete before the meet time as we will be departing promptly for the clinic site.  If you are flying into the area, we highly recommend that you fly in the night before to avoid missing your team due to flight changes or other delays. You will be responsible for coordinating your own ground transportation throughout the clinic.    

DEPARTURE:
March 20 will be the last working day of the trip. Departure time will be dependent on case load and community needs, but we can expect to leave the community early evening on the 20th. You may book your flight out of Phoenix any time after 5 AM March 21st. Please do not book flights earlier than this. We expect volunteers to participate for the duration of the clinic. You will be responsible for arranging your own accommodations prior to and after the arrival and departure times.

CLINIC INFORMATION:
