ASVCP Young Investigator Award

Purpose
The ASVCP Young Investigator Award (YIA) recognizes outstanding oral presentations given by residents or graduate students in the field of veterinary clinical pathology.

Eligibility

The oral presentation must be given by the candidate during the ASVCP Clinical Pathology Focused Scientific Session at the 2017 Annual Meeting and must describe original work of the competitor that involves clinical, translational, or basic research relating to clinical pathology.

Award Categories
Two awards will be given. One award will be given to the best oral presentation involving applied or translational research or case reviews that provide new knowledge in the field of veterinary clinical pathology. One award will be given to the best oral presentation involving basic research that provides new knowledge in the field of veterinary clinical pathology.  The award category can be requested by the student, but final assignment of the category will be determined by the chair of the Clinical Pathology Focused Scientific Group and the immediate Past President of the ASVCP. The student will be notified of the final category assignment prior to the meeting.

Judging
Award selection will be based on scientific content, abstract composition, clarity of presentation, and the ability to answer questions. Each resident or graduate student may submit only one presentation for this competition.  Candidates awarded a YIA the preceding year will not be eligible for an award in the subsequent year. The winner of each category will receive a 0 check from the ASVCP.

Three judges from the ASVCP membership will be identified by the Immediate Past President of ASVCP.  Judges will deliberate after the second ASVCP Clinical Pathology Focused Scientific Session and provide the names of the winners in each category to the immediate Past President.

Award Announcements
Awards will be announced at the beginning of the Case Review Session at the 2017 Annual Meeting by the ASVCP Immediate Past President or Executive Board designee. This individual  will present the check to the awardees and a photo session will follow. Winners will be notified that they should be present at this session to accept the award.

ACVP/AAVLD Diagnostic Pathology Travel Award

Purpose
The American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP) and the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD) encourage trainees in veterinary pathology to participate in the Annual Meetings of both organizations.  The ACVP/AAVLD Diagnostic Pathology Travel Award is available to graduate students and/or residents in veterinary pathology for travel to and participation in the Annual Meeting of the AAVLD.

  • The recipient will be awarded a $1,000 grant from the ACVP to help defray travel and lodging costs associated with attending and presenting at the AAVLD Annual Meeting.
  • The recipient will be granted a waiver for the AAVLD meeting registration fee.

Eligibility
Candidates for the Diagnostic Pathology Travel Award must be veterinarians or other medical professionals currently enrolled in a full-time residency program and/or graduate program in veterinary pathology or a related discipline in the U.S. or Canada.  Candidates who have completed a graduate and/or residency program in veterinary pathology within a year before the AAVLD meeting are eligible to compete. 

Candidates should be aware of the requirement for the award recipient to attend and present their work at the AAVLD Annual Meeting in the calendar year following the ACVP meeting at which the award is given (2018 AAVLD Annual Meeting).

Application and Selection Procedure
The presentation must represent original work of the applicant completed during his/her residency or graduate program.

Five or more oral presentations will be invited from abstracts submitted for the Diagnostic Pathology Focused Scientific Session at the ACVP Annual Meeting. This means that if you wish to compete in this category, it counts as one of your two abstract submissions, and you may or may not be selected as a finalist. Commonly, finalists for this award may be required to give both a poster and an oral presentation if competing for both the YIA poster award and the ACVP/AAVLD Diagnostic Pathology Travel Awards from the same abstract. The applicant should follow the guidelines for application for the ACVP Young Investigator Award in Diagnostic Pathology to be eligible for both awards. On the website, an applicant can choose either a poster (if also applying for YIA) or oral presentation and still be eligible for this award, but only the travel award finalists will be asked to do oral presentations.

Judging
The judging panel consisting of College Diplomates will select the best oral presentation by a trainee as well as a runner-up*. The presentation will be judged on originality and creativity, impact, organization, interpretation of findings and quality of the visual aids.  The recipient will attend and present the same oral presentation at the next AAVLD Annual Meeting.

*If the selected candidate is unable to attend the next AAVLD Annual Meeting, then the runner-up will receive the award.

Award Announcement
The recipient of the award will be announced at the ACVP Awards and Recognition Event on Tuesday, November 7, 2017.

Timeline
Trainees will be notified in September if their abstract has been selected for oral presentation in the Diagnostic Pathology Focused Scientific Session at the ACVP Annual Meeting of the same year.

If you would like to be considered for this award, submit your abstract online at www.acvp.org by June 30, 2017 and indicate your interest by checking the applicable box.
