2018 Outstanding Surgical Residents Awards

The ACVS established the Outstanding Surgical Residents’ Awards competition to encourage the development of clinically important research and the dissemination of the results of these investigations, particularly those conducted by surgical 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

Two posters were selected from those presented by residents at the 2017 ACVS Surgery Summit. Eight oral presentations (four from both large animal and small animal categories) were selected from those given in the Residents’ Forum at the ACVS Surgery Summit. 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
