2009 ACVS Outstanding Surgical Resident award presented


At the 2009 ACVS Veterinary Symposium, ACVS resident Kyla Ortved was recognized for her manuscript on the "Treatment of Subchondral Bone Cysts of the Medial Femoral Condyle in Mature Horses Using Chondrocyte Implantation: A Retrospective Study of 43 Cases," as part of the Large Animal Residents’ Forum Presentation.

ACVS established the Outstanding Surgical Resident Awards competition to encourage the development of clinically important research and the dissemination of the results of these investigations, particularly those conducted by surgical residents. Two posters are selected from those presented by residents at the Symposium. This year, 14 resident posters were presented. The 2009 Residents’ Forum was divided into small and large animal sections with fifteen research papers presented in each. Awards are given for first and second place in clinical and research categories in both the large and small animal sections.
