ACVP/AAVLD Diagnostic Pathology Travel Award

Purpose
The American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP) and the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD) encourage trainees in veterinary pathology to participate in the Annual Meetings of both organizations.  The ACVP/AAVLD Diagnostic Pathology Travel Award is available to graduate students and/or residents in veterinary pathology for travel to and participation in the Annual Meeting of the AAVLD.

  • The recipient will be awarded a $1,000 grant from the ACVP to help defray travel and lodging costs associated with attending and presenting at the AAVLD Annual Meeting.
  • The recipient will be granted a waiver for the AAVLD meeting registration fee.

Eligibility
Candidates for the Diagnostic Pathology Travel Award must be veterinarians or other medical professionals currently enrolled in a full-time residency program and/or graduate program in veterinary pathology or a related discipline in the U.S. or Canada.  Candidates who have completed a graduate and/or residency program in veterinary pathology within a year before the AAVLD meeting are eligible to compete. 

Candidates should be aware of the requirement for the award recipient to attend and present their work at the AAVLD Annual Meeting in the calendar year following the ACVP meeting at which the award is given (2019 AAVLD Annual Meeting).

Application and Selection Procedure
The presentation must represent original work of the applicant completed during his/her residency or graduate program.

Five or more oral presentations will be invited from abstracts submitted for the Diagnostic Pathology Focused Scientific Session at the ACVP Annual Meeting. This means that if you wish to compete in this category, it counts as one of your two abstract submissions, and you may or may not be selected as a finalist. Commonly, finalists for this award may be required to give both a poster too if competing for both the YIA poster award and the ACVP/AAVLD Diagnostic Pathology Travel Award from the same abstract. On the website, an applicant can choose either a poster (if also applying for YIA) or oral presentation and still be eligible for this award, but only the travel award finalists will be asked to do oral presentations.

Judging
The judging panel consisting of College Diplomates will select the best oral presentation by a trainee as well as a runner-up*. The presentation will be judged on originality and creativity, impact, organization, interpretation of findings and quality of the visual aids.  The recipient will attend and present the same oral presentation at the next AAVLD Annual Meeting.

*If the selected candidate is unable to attend the next AAVLD Annual Meeting, then the runner-up will receive the award.

Award Announcement
The recipient of the award will be announced at the ACVP Awards and Recognition Event on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Timeline
Trainees will be notified in September if their abstract has been selected for oral presentation in the Diagnostic Pathology Focused Scientific Session at the ACVP Annual Meeting of the same year.

If you would like to be considered for this award, submit your abstract online at www.acvp.org by July 2, 2018 and indicate your interest by checking the applicable box.

ASVCP Young Investigator Award

Background
This award was inaugurated in 2000 to recognize veterinary clinical pathology trainees (residents or graduate students) with outstanding oral presentations during the ASVCP Focused Scientific Sessions (FSS) at the ACVP/ASVCP Annual Meeting.  While one award annually was initially provided, two awards are currently given for excellent oral presentations providing new knowledge in the field of veterinary clinical pathology. One is for the best oral presentation involving basic science research and one for the best oral presentation involving applied or translational research or case reviews.

Eligibility
Candidates must have a degree in veterinary medicine and be enrolled in a residency or graduate program in veterinary clinical pathology or a related discipline. The oral presentation must be given by candidates during the ASVCP Clinical Pathology FSS at the ACVP/ASVCP Annual Meeting. The presentation must describe original work of the competitor that involves clinical, translational, or basic research relating to clinical pathology. Each resident or graduate student may submit only one presentation for this competition in a single year.  Candidates awarded a YIA the preceding year will not be eligible for a YIA in the subsequent year.

Award Categories
Two awards will be given to recognize presentations providing new knowledge in veterinary clinical pathology. One award will be given for the best oral presentation involving applied or translational research or case reviews and one will be for the best oral presentation involving basic research. The award category can be requested by the student, but final assignment of the category will be determined by the Chair of the Clinical Pathology Focused Scientific Group (typically the ASVCP President-Elect) and the Immediate Past President of the ASVCP. Candidates will be notified of the final category assignment prior to the meeting, typically via e-mail.

Call for Applications
Trainees apply for the award at the time of online abstract submission via the ACVP website which this year is July 2, 2018.

Selection procedure
Award selection will be based on scientific content, abstract composition, clarity of presentation, and ability to answer questions.

Finances and Award Presentation
Recipients are notified (via e-mail) by the Immediate Past-President congratulating them and informing them that they should be present at this session to accept their award. The Immediate Past-President also notifies via e-mail candidates not receiving awards of this decision. Each recipient will receive a $500 check from the ASVCP and a congratulatory letter.  The awards are presented to the recipients at the beginning of the ASVCP Mystery Slide Session at the ACVP/ASVCP Annual Meeting. 

If you would like to be considered for this award, submit your abstract online at www.acvp.org by July 2, 2018 and indicate your interest by checking the applicable box.

American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) Meeting Travel Award to Experimental Biology  

Purpose
This award is designed to encourage ACVP trainees to showcase advances they have made in veterinary and translational science at the Experimental Biology (EB) Annual Meeting.  As indicated on the EB website (http://experimentalbiology.org), the meeting attracts scientists and researchers in the fields of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology, nutrition, and pharmacology.  One of the founding members of this consortium is the ASIP, a group with scientific interests that are closely aligned with those of ACVP members.  ACVP members can make great contributions and forge productive collaborations with others at this meeting.

  • The ACVP will award $1,000 to a veterinary pathology trainee who has submitted an abstract to the ACVP meeting, to support the trainee's participation in the succeeding EB annual meeting.
  • The cost of abstract submission to the EB will be covered by this award.  The award will be distributed to the awardee after submission of receipts associated with EB meeting attendance.

Eligibility
The awardee will be selected on the basis of the quality of an abstract submitted to the ACVP/ASVCP meeting by the July 2 deadline as well as other application information.  Once chosen for the award, the awardee must update and submit their abstract for presentation at EB by the November EB deadline. 

  1. The applicant should submit a copy of the abstract to the ACVP/ASVCP meeting. 
  2. The applicant should also submit a letter indicating the applicant’s interest in research and in attending the EB meeting.
  3. A letter of recommendation from an ACVP, ECVP, or JCVP Diplomate (enclosed in a sealed envelope) who is directly involved in the applicant’s residency training must be included.
  4. Submit your award materials to Mary Johns at mjohns@reesgroupinc.com.

The ACVP/ASIP Meeting Travel Award is independent of other travel awards to the ACVP Annual Meeting.  Therefore, awardees do not have to select between this award and other ACVP travel awards.  The winner of this award will be recognized at the Awards and Recognitions Program at the ACVP/ASVCP Annual Meeting.

In order to be considered for this award, you must apply for the Graduate Student/Resident Travel Award (see above). This includes submission of an abstract as well as an application.  Candidates for this award will be selected from that pool of applicants.  

If you would like to be considered for this award, submit your abstract by July 2, 2018 and your application for the Graduate Student/Resident Travel Award.
