2017 AAZV Post Graduate Competitions and Veterinary Student Recognitions
AAZV invites veterinary students, MS and PhD students, and veterinarians in a post-graduate training program (interns and residents) to present their work at the AAZV annual conference. Individuals who have recently completed these programs are also eligible. The top presentations in the Graduate Degree Program Competition and the Post-graduate Veterinarian Competition will be recognized with awards. The intent of these competitions is to foster and recognize scholarly efforts from developing clinicians and researchers in zoo and wildlife medicine and the related sciences. See below for details on each of the three competitions.
