SAMSoc is a BSAVA Affiliated Group

Case report competition - Spring 2019


Do you have an interesting or unusual small animal medicine case that you would think might be suitable as an oral presentation? SAMSoc invites submissions for its annual case report session during the pre BSAVA satellite meeting on April 3rd2019.

Suitable cases should have interesting discussion points but need not be so unusual that they would be considered publishable. Two cases will be selected by the Committee for presentation at the meeting (each of approximately 12 minutes' duration). Cases will be selected for presentation based upon their originality, the quality of the medical investigation performed, the validity of the conclusions drawn and the quality of the abstract. This is an excellent opportunity for general practitioners, interns and residents alike to share interesting cases and improve presentation skills in a friendly environment. 

The audience will select the winning report via a ballot vote at the meeting and the two reports will be published after the event on the SAMSoc website.

The successful two candidates will be eligible for free registration to the SAMSoc meeting. The best case report presentation will be voted for by the audience - prizes to be confirmed.
