ASVCP Educator Awards


The ASVCP Education Committee would like to take this opportunity to call for nominations for the 2016 ASVCP Educator Award to be presented at next year's meeting in New Orleans. Contributions to educa­tion 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 pub­lishing 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.

Nominations should include:

  • A nomination letter describing the nominee's accomplishments and contributions to the education of veterinary medical students, clinical pathology residents, veterinarians, laboratory professionals, or other groups;
  • Two additional letters of support;
  • A current CV from the nominee; and
  • A one-page personal statement from the nominee describing their goals and motivation in education.

Individuals who have been previously nominated but who did not receive the award may be nominated again (please contact the ASVCP Education Committee Chair in this instance). Nominations will be accepted through May 1, 2016, and can be sent to Carolyn Grimes ( Current members of the ASVCP Education Committee and Executive Board will be excluded from nomination for the duration of their service on these committees.
