We are pleased to announce the annual College of Veterinary Medicine Clinical Investigators’ Day will be held on Friday, September 30, 2016 in Lecture Hall III of the Veterinary Research Tower. This program offers our interns and residents an opportunity to showcase their research endeavors and provides a forum for trainees to hone both written and oral presentation skills. Presentations will also be scored by a panel of judges who will award a travel award to those giving the best presentations.
The Day is also designed to provide a forum for veterinary professionals to learn and gain knowledge in contemporary research problems affecting veterinary medicine. Topics cover a wide range of applied, basic, retrospective and prospective studies. The event will provide attendees with a broad understanding on how clinical trainee studies are designed and analyzed to have maximum impact on veterinary medicine.
For the third year, Clinical Investigators’ Day is pleased to collaborate with the New York State Fall Veterinary Conference. Conference registrants are welcomed to attend the program with advanced registration. Participation in the program will qualify for New York State continuing education credit.
New this year, first and second year student trainees are invited to present a novel research proposal. In this format, residents new to their department have an opportunity to present a unique research idea, including pertinent literature review, rationale for the study, scientific design, and hypothesis and expected outcomes of the study. Preliminary data is not a requirement for this presentation.
The program will also include keynote speakers, an overview of career opportunities offered in the College of Veterinary Medicine after completion of residency training, a panel discussion of individual research training and career path experiences, and will be concluded with an awards ceremony and reception.
On behalf of the college community organizing this event, we look forward to this special day and welcome your participation. If you have questions about the guidelines or submission requirements, please contact any one of us.
