SAMSoc is a BSAVA Affiliated Group

Invitation to enter spring 2018 case report competition

Do you have an interesting or unusual small animal medicine case that you would think might be suitable as an oral presentation?

SAMSoc is currently inviting submissions for its annual case report session during the pre BSAVA satellite meeting on April 4th 2018.

Suitable cases should have interesting discussion points but need not be so unusual that they would be considered publishable. The SAMSoc Committee will select three cases for presentation at the meeting (each of approximately 15 minutes’ duration).  

The selection criteria include the quality of the medical investigations, validity of conclusions drawn, quality of the abstract and originality. The audience will select the winning report via a ballot vote. 

1st place £250

2nd place £150

3rd place £100

All case report presenters will also be given free registration for the meeting. Entries from interns, residents and first-opinion practitioners are particularly encouraged. Successful reports will be included in notes from the meeting and will be made available to members on the SAMSoc website.
