2022 Outstanding Surgery Residents’ Awards
The ACVS established the Outstanding Surgery Residents’ Awards competition to encourage the development of clinically important research and the dissemination of the results of these investigations, particularly those conducted by surgery residents. Congratulations to each of the award recipients.
Awards were presented in the following categories:
- Large Animal Residents’ Forum Presentation
(Research and Clinical)
- Small Animal Residents’ Forum Presentation
(Research and Clinical)
- Veterinary Surgery Publication
- Poster Presentation
Studies may be prospective or retrospective clinical studies or controlled laboratory research.
Two posters were selected from those presented by residents. Eight oral presentations (four from both large animal and small animal categories) were selected from those presented. Three manuscripts were selected from those published in Veterinary Surgery. Presentations, publications, and posters must represent the original work of the resident. Studies may be prospective or retrospective clinical studies or controlled.
