2/2/2018 Student Case Presentation Competition Submissions, AABP 51st Annual Conference
The AABP Program Committee announces the call for abstract submissions for the Student Research/Clinical Case Presentation Competition to be held Thursday, September 13, 2018, at the 51st AABP Annual Conference in Phoenix, Ariz. The purpose of the competition is to promote student interest in the AABP, encourage development of investigative and communicative skills, and allow veterinary students to actively participate in the annual meeting program. Students at any level in their veterinary program, as well as those who have graduated within six months prior to the competition, are eligible. Graduates should try to ensure that prospective employer(s) will allow meeting attendance. All submissions for the 2018 Student Case Presentation Competition should be submitted online at by February 2, 2018. Abstracts for submission will be limited to 250-300 words. All required information can be submitted via the website; receipt of submissions will be confirmed by email. Ten presentations will be selected. Notification will be made by mid- to late-February, so that adequate time is available for travel and class/clinic coverage arrangements. Further instructions will follow for those selected. Presentations will fall into the categories of either Research Reports or Clinical Case Reports. However, research projects should not be part of a graduate program. Students enrolled in masters or doctoral graduate programs should submit their abstracts to the Research Summaries portion of the program. Clinical cases submitted should be practical and representative of those most likely to be encountered with some frequency by recent graduates. The research entries should be applied in nature and directly undertaken by the presenter. Submissions which adhere to these guidelines will receive higher rankings during the selection process. In 2018, AABP will provide $500 for travel to the selected presenters. The contestants will be judged on both the quality of their case investigation or research and the quality of the presentation. Three or four awards will be made, according to the number of entries in each of the two categories, Research and Clinical Case. For a category involving four or fewer entries, one award of $1,500 will be provided. For a category involving five or more entries, a first place award of $1,500 and a second place award of $750 will be presented. No more than one student may be involved with the submission or presentation of a case or research project, therefore abstracts submitted with multiple names of presenters will not be considered. Please contact your AABP faculty representative for more information and for assistance in preparing your abstract. You may also contact Dr. Renee Dewell ( or Dr. Fred Gingrich at (, or 800-269-2227. We look forward to receiving your submissions and appreciate your participation in the program.
