ACVS Foundation
Honored Mentor

Stephen B. Adams


Dr. Adams, with his contagious passion and enthusiasm, has been an outstanding mentor in equine surgery. Because of his years of experience and his ability to mix the old with the new, learning from him has always been enlightening. Knowing him has challenged me to become a better surgeon.

I have been blessed with a career in a profession that has been extremely rewarding. Mentoring residents has been a major part of that career and has always been a great joy. It has been fun to assist residents in becoming certified by the ACVS and I have learned a lot from each of them. I am proud of them and glad for the very small part I had in their training. I am greatly honored and humbled by their recognition.
