AWARDS & GRANTS

ACVO BEST RESIDENT MANUSCRIPT AWARDS
The ACVO planning committee and BOR are pleased to announce a newly revamped mechanism by which our college will recognize outstanding resident research. In an effort to better and more fairly evaluate our residents’ research efforts and to encourage their follow‐through to publication, we are excited about a new opportunity to showcase ACVO resident research efforts by awarding 3 BEST MANUSCRIPT AWARDS. These awards will replace the traditional best research and clinical papers, and the ‘Dr. Dice Memorial’ awards for presentation at the meeting. Below are the winners of 2016.
