ACVS Foundation
Honored Mentor

Denis J. Marcellin-Little


Being an ACVS Foundation Honored Mentor is very touching. Mentoring ACVS residents is at the core of the responsibilities of veterinary surgeons working in academia. Training future Diplomates is a key part of their professional legacy. There is no greater joy than being acknowledged by an ACVS Diplomate who is appreciative for the mentorship received.

Dr. Marcellin-Little became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons over 20 years ago. The rigorous preparation that he invested in pursuing ACVS membership resulted in one of the most important professional achievement of his life and continues to shape his approach to science. He derives great joy in training ACVS residents and in seeing them become new Diplomates.
