Medical sciences are divided into two subcategories: human medicine and veterinary medicine. The human medicine is further divided into various subject areas such as internal medicine, surgery, gynecology and further categories. While human medicine deals with the human being, veterinary medicine deals with animals.

Students or trainees can do an internship in animal care or become a physiotherapy intern. If you are planning to do a profound internship you should adequate medical education and experiences.
