The British Small Animal Veterinary Association is urging members to vote for this year’s prestigious BSAVA awards.
The awards – which recognise the inspiring work of colleagues who have made their own “exceptional contributions” to the profession – will be presented at BSAVA Congress in April 2013.
- the Amoroso Award, recognising outstanding contributions to small animal studies by a non-clinical member of university staff;
- the Melton Award, presented for meritorious contributions by veterinary surgeons to small animal veterinary practice;
- the Blaine Award, for outstanding contributions to the advancement of small animal veterinary medicine or surgery; and
- the Bourgelat Award, presented as the primary international recognition for really outstanding contributions to the field of small animal practice.
Members can vote in several categories, and the deadline for votes is September 14, 2012. Visit www.bsava.com/awards for more information.
The Frank Beattie Travel Scholarship will also be awarded at the ceremony. The scholarship – worth £2000 – was established in 1988 in memory of Frank Beattie, a well respected veterinary surgeon and a long-standing member of the BSAVA and is to help a BSAVA member undertake a trip abroad to study a particular aspect of veterinary practice.
To apply for the scholarship, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01452 726705. The deadline for application is September 28, 2012.
