ACVCP/AAVPT Graduate/Resident Student Research Award

Information on submission and abstract guidelines

The purpose of the Resident/Graduate Student Pharmacology Research Award is to recognize research excellence of a graduate student in basic research or a resident in veterinary clinical.  A winning oral and/or poster research presentation will be identified annually during the ACVCP Annual Forum (held in conjunction with the ACVIM Annual Forum) or AAVPT Biennial Symposium. The award consists of a certificate signed by the officers of the ACVCP and AAVPT and a check for $1,000 (US). 

Qualification: To be eligible for the Resident/Graduate Student Pharmacology Research Award, candidates must have completed their research under the following conditions:
• While in training for qualification to sit the ACVCP exam; as a resident/graduate student while being mentored by an ACVCP diplomate; or
• While in training as a student member of AAVPT while in a graduate program under the guidance of an AAVPT Fellow
• The abstract must be submitted BEFORE the candidate has become certified as a diplomate of ACVCP, or in the case of a graduate student, before the graduate degree is awarded.

To be considered:
• The student must submit an abstract for consideration and presentation at either the AAVPT biennial symposium or the ACVCP Forum.
• For the AAVPT biennial symposium, abstracts must be forwarded to the chair of the AAVPT Awards Committee. The award committee chair must be notified at the time the abstract is submitted that the abstract it is being submitted for consideration for the award. 
• Submissions must include a letter from the nominee’s mentor or advisor confirming candidate’s eligibility to receive the award.
• An oral and/or poster presentation of the research must be presented at the AAVPT Biennial Symposium or the ACVCP Annual Meeting (held in conjunction with the ACVIM Annual Forum).

Nominations must be received by April 1, 2015.  Nominations shall be submitted electronically to the Dr. Lesley Rausch-Derra (lrausch-derra@aratana.com ) or via U.S. mail (Dr. Lesley Rausch-Derra, 8085 North Chariton Avenue, Parkville, MO 64152).  Acceptance of abstracts not meeting the submission deadline will be subject to the discretion of the Chair of the AAVPT Awards Committee, who will make a judgment regarding the existence of compelling extenuating circumstances.

Judging the Award: An ad hoc committee appointed by the Chair of the ACVCP Scientific Program
Committee and the Chair of the AAVPT Awards Committee will judge the award. The responsibility of chairing the ad hoc committee will alternate yearly between the ACVCP and AAVPT. The ad hoc committee will be comprised of at least 3 members; the Chair and two members selected by the Chair that are each members of the ACVCP and/or AAVPT. In the event that the Chair is not able to attend the meeting, the Chair will appoint a designee. Copies of qualified abstracts will be forward to the ad hoc committee members by the Chair prior to presentation. There will be no preference for oral or poster presentations and each will be considered equally for their merit. When the committee has viewed all presentations, they will be ranked first through last. The Chair will sum the rank for each candidate and the presentation with the lowest number (highest rank) will be considered the winner. In the event of a tie, the Chair will place the tie-breaking vote. The decision of the ad hoc committee shall be at that time and shall be final.  The award will be granted annually if the judging committee determines that an abstract is of sufficient merit that is should be recognized with an award.

Award Presentation:  The award will be presented at a predetermined place and time during the AAVPT Biennial Symposium or the ACVCP Annual Meeting (held in conjunction with the ACVIM Forum). The winner will be notified by the Chair prior to award presentation.  If the winner is not able to attend the award presentation, the mentor may accept the award on his/her behalf, or the winner will be announced and the award sent by mail.
