The ACVS Surgery Summit is where the best minds in the veterinary community come together to garner the insight, knowledge and intelligence to make better decisions in the evolving world of veterinary surgery.
In keeping with the objectives of the Constitution of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, whereby ACVS encourages its members to pursue original investigations and to contribute to the veterinary literature, the ACVS Foundation has established research grant awards programs. The current grant programs include: Surgeon-In-Training, Diplomate Clinical Research, and the Zoetis Dual Training Research Grant Program which is designed for ACVS residents or Diplomates currently enrolled in a PhD program. Applications are received annually and reviewed by the ACVS Research Committee.
At the 2010 ACVS Veterinary Symposium, ACVS residents received awards for publication in Veterinary Surgery and for presentation of scientific research at the Residents’ Forum and in poster format.
