Residents Get Free Journal Access in 2017!
With the move to online-only Veterinary Ophthalmology journal access, we were able to arrange for complimentary access online to the journal for all of our ABVO residVO Journalents that have a mentor that is a current member of the ACVO. This is a wonderful benefit for ACVO members to be able to provide to their residents annually.

If you need help activating your online access after January 1st, please contact Rhonda Riccardi at Wiley for assistance. Newly approved residents of current members will automatically be set up with permission to access, but they will need to contact us for instructions on how to set it up online.

ACVO Manuscript Awards
The ACVO annually recognizes outstanding resident research through the "ACVO Manuscript Award" program. Awards are given to the best research and clinical papers in three categories. The deadline for application is typically early August. Check the web site in May for guidelines and deadlines. Awards provide $500 cash, a letter of recognition and a crystal plaque, to be awarded at the conference in front of the general session.
