At our autumn meeting on the 25th October this year, we are welcoming posters describing interesting or unusual case reports or research projects, to allow more people an opportunity to share experiences with colleagues.
SAMSoc will shortlist entries as in previous years. The primary author must be in attendance at the SAMSoc autumn meeting to present the poster.
The winning entries will be selected by delegates on the day by ballot.
Candidates are invited to deliver a three minute poster pitch presentation during the morning session (see programme). The aim is to encourage attendees to visit your poster during the lunchbreak and to grab the interest of your audience in a similar manner as an ‘elevator pitch’.
Delegates will be encouraged to visit the poster displays during the day and to vote by the end of the lunch break.
All entrants will be notified of the Board’s decision no later than Friday 20th September, to allow shortlisted candidates to prepare their posters.
Dan is a final year resident at Cambridge and entered the competition as he felt it was an interesting case. The case included a 2 year follow up, and the cat remains fit and well!
I'm a 2016 RVC graduate currently at Willows doing the small animal rotating internship. I saw this case in practice and later referred her to Willows. I thought she was a really interesting little dog and the work up was very rewarding from what started as client driven pre-anaesthetic blood testing.
I decided to submit the case as I thought the multiple nutritional deficiencies were interesting, especially as raw-feeding/boutique diets are increasingly more popular! The cat is doing very well one-and-a-half years after diagnosis and continues to eat a complete commercial diet.
