ACVIM Forum Research Reports and Research Abstracts

Research reports are presented at the ACVIM Forum by active researchers in the field, and permit active researchers the opportunity to present new findings using an extended abstract format. Post-doctoral fellows may be considered, but ACVIM Candidates, other residents, interns, graduate students, undergraduate students or professional students cannot be considered in this category.

Anyone may submit abstracts to be considered in the research abstract category. ACVIM Candidates may be eligible for the Resident Research award. Awards will be given to selected research abstract presenters (or poster authors) who are active residents in an approved ACVIM training program, or who have completed an ACVIM approved residency within the last 6 months but are not yet ACVIM Board-certified. These abstracts will be judged on the quality of both the research and oral or poster presentation.
