ACVP Veterinary Student Poster Awards
ACVP offers two Veterinary Student Poster Awards at the Annual Meeting for veterinary students that require submission of an abstract and a quality poster presentation of pathology-related research or case work material at the Annual Meeting. The veterinary student must be the FIRST author on the abstract, and a pathologist mentor must be included as a co-author. All names and affiliations must be included.
Abstracts must present ORIGINAL findings or a NOVEL case that has not been previously reported. All abstracts must have clear results, and abstracts with "results pending" will not be accepted. Only one abstract per student will be accepted.
Submissions of veterinary student abstracts will be accepted in the summer. The typical deadline for veterinary student abstracts is the end of August. The submission system typically opens in late July.
A link to the abstract submission site will be available on the abstracts page in late July.
Mentor of the Year Award
Do you want to recognize an outstanding Chapter Faculty Advisor? Is there a Pathology Resident or Graduate Student who has been actively engaged in Chapter Activities? How about a Pathologist, either within or outside your veterinary school, who was a great mentor to you during an externship? Please consider nominating him or her for the Annual Mentor of the Year Award to be announced at the Annual Meeting during the Veterinary Student Breakfast.
To nominate someone, complete the nomination packet by September 22, and include letters of nomination from: (a) Student Chapter Officers/Members, AND (b) a pathologist from the nominated mentor's workplace. For information on how the Mentor of the Year is selected, please see the scoring rubric. Although not necessary, resident and graduate student input and signatures on the student letters of recommendation are encouraged.
