Abstract: The article is a study on enhancing veterinary students’ cultural competences as achieved through the ZOE European project within a partnership of institutions and organisations from five countries, coordinated by the Ion Ionescu de la Brad University of agricultural sciences and veterinary medicine Iasi, Romania. The impact of cultural diversity on the provision of health care has created new responsibilities especially for academic institutions which are asked to prepare the future doctors, who need to be culturally competent in order to deliver quality services to their clients no matter their cultural background, religion, beliefs or language competence. The article presents some of the cultural barriers doctors face nowadays to the effective treatment and prevention of malaria and dirofilariosis, as well as case studies collected from students themselves and used as effective teaching tools in educating medical students to become culturally competent providers and practitioners.
