ASVCP Educator Awards


The ASVCP Education Committee would like to take this opportunity to call for nominations for the 2014 ASVCP Educator Award to be presented at next year's meeting in Atlanta. Contributions to educa¬tion vary greatly to include standard classroom and clinical teaching that primarily takes place in veterinary schools, continuing education of practitioners and technical staff, formal and informal mentoring of students by pathologists in the private sector, committee service to ASVCP and ACVP including board examination preparation, creation of teaching materials such as books and computer programs, and pub¬lishing articles relevant to any stage of veterinary medical education. Unfortunately, formal recognition of these contributions is given almost exclusively to pathologists working in academia, but the ASVCP Education Committee would like to encourage a wider range of ASVCP members to be considered for the award.

Letters of nomination should describe the nominee's contributions to the education of veterinary medical students, clinical pathology residents, veterinarians, laboratory professionals, or other groups. In addition to a brief descrip¬tion (one page or less) of the nominee's accomplishments, the letters should include the contact information for the nominee and a list of 2-3 individuals that can provide additional letters of support. Please send letters of nomination to the ASVCP Education Committee chair, Jed Overmann ( Electronic documents are preferred. Nominations will be accepted through May 1, 2014. The finalists chosen by the Educa¬tion Committee will be contacted and asked to submit a short CV, personal statement and a list of references for letters of support. These additional materials will be accepted through July 1, 2014. Current members of the ASVCP Education Committee and Executive Board will be excluded from nomination for the duration of their service on these committees. Please feel free to contact Jed if additional information is needed.
