PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE presidentmessage
Dear Colleagues:

Chris Zink This month, let me introduce you to the Continuing Education Committee, ably chaired by Jen Brown with members Rick Mitchell, Carol Gillis, and Steve Martinez, and with Mike Davis as the committee's liaison with the ACVSMR Board of Directors.

This committee is tasked with arranging our roster of speakers for sponsored continuing education tracks that will be relevant to you as members. But more than that, this committee is committed to increasing the quality and quantity of the scientific abstracts for presentation at our continuing education opportunities as well as to advocating for a stand-alone continuing ed meeting that would be tailored specifically to ACVSMR diplomate-level presentations.

With these goals in mind, the Continuing Education Committee has achieved the following goals in the last year:

Achievement #1: This one should probably be listed as Achievements 1 through 7, since the committee established the programming for the ACVSMR tracks at VMX 2018/2019/2020, ACVS 2018/2019/2020, and WVRS @ IAVRPT 2018. This deceptively simple-appearing task involves advertising and conducting the abstract competitions for each meeting, reviewing all abstracts and selecting the winners as well as scheduling the speakers and coordinating all of the complexities of each day of lectures with the host venue.

Achievement #2: Wrote and submitted to the membership a survey requesting input from the membership on their level of interest in having an independent meeting as well as other topics related to that goal. By the way, the survey got an outstanding response from the membership, Thanks go out to each member that took the time to respond. The usefulness of such a survey is very much proportional to the percentage of responses. In response to the survey, the committee drafted a complete prospectus for an independent ACVSMR meeting. Further development was not approved by the BOD at their October 2018 meeting.

Future goals of this committee include improving our roster of speakers for our sponsored CE tracks, increasing the quality and quantity of the scientific abstracts for presentation at our meetings, and continuing to advocate for a stand-alone CE meeting tailored specifically to ACVSMR diplomate-level presentations.

Thanks, CE Committee!

All my best,

Help Build a Resource Library for Veterinary Students! library

The public relations committee of ACVSMR is hoping to develop sports medicine and rehabilitation student clubs in veterinary schools. We are conducting a survey of all U.S. veterinary schools and are planning to establish contact with advisors of existing clubs. In addition, we will be reaching out to faculty at the remaining schools offering assistance in developing student clubs.
For our organization to be most beneficial to these student clubs, we are now requesting that ACVSMR diplomates help us to create a library of resource materials. These can include case reports (canine and equine), webinars, and videotapes of clinical conditions with diagnosis, etc. We will make these resources available to student club advisors for use in club meetings, crediting those who have supplied the resources.
We expect interest to be high and are hoping that you will support us in this effort by helping to build our library. Please contact Dr. Linda Blythe, Thank you!
