PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE presidentmessage
Dear Colleagues:

Chris Zink This will be my last newsletter writing to you as President. Your hard-working Board of Directors has accomplished a lot during this past year and will continue to do so, all with the goal of improving your experience and success as diplomates.

The Examination Committee
This month, I would like to introduce you to the last of the committees that I have described during the past year - the exam committee. It is appropriate to do so now, as we have just notified the 16 candidates that have successfully completed the requirements to sit the board examination. With any luck, we will have another 16 diplomates joining the college, which will place College membership well above 250 diplomates!

The Examination Committee, chaired by Dr. Marti Drum, consists of three subcommittees - one for each component of the exam - Core, Canine and Equine. The subcommittee for the Core Exam is chaired by Dr. Matthew Stewart, and the members are Drs. Nic Cabano, Suzan Oakley and Juliette Hart. The subcommittee for the Canine Exam is chaired by Dr. Laura Romano, and the members are Drs. Andrea Looney, Andrea Henderson and Sarah Love. The subcommittee for the Equine Exam is chaired by Dr. Allison Morton (Past chair: Dr. Jennifer Taintor), and the members are Drs. Carrie Schlachter, Ryland Edwards and Jane Manfredi.

This committee has the enormous task of writing and vetting (pun intended) the questions for the annual certifying exam. Their major accomplishment this year was that of improving exam security. In addition, the committee is beginning the significant task of creating and implementing scenario-based questions for future examinations, rather than only multiple choice questions. The Examination Committee also has been busy streamlining the question-writing process and undertaking annual training in question writing as a live workshop rather than a self-tutorial. They work very hard to ensure that the examination is current, secure, and fair.

Funds Allocated for Student Outreach
The Board of Directors recently allocated funds for the Public Relations and Marketing Committee, currently co-chaired by Dr. Felix Duerr and Dr. Evelyn Orenbuch, to encourage outreach to veterinary students with the goal of teaching them about the fields of veterinary sports medicine and rehabilitation. The ACVSMR is joining with the American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians in this important endeavor.

ACVSMR Meeting - Just 3 Weeks Away!
I hope to see you at the ACVSMR meeting on Friday, October 18, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada. If you have any questions for me or other members of the Board of Directors, please feel free to ask in person! In addition, be sure to attend the ACVSMR Business Meeting, which will be held at lunchtime. All ACVSMR diplomates and residents are welcome to attend; attendees will visit the exhibit hall for a complimentary box lunch and return for the business meeting. Come and join us!

We Need Your Help for a New ACVSMR Video
We also are looking for ACVSMR diplomates who will be at the meeting in Las Vegas and would like to be interviewed about the College for our new video. A limited number of spots are available. Please see the details below and email Felix Duerr if you are interesting in participating.

As always, your Board of Directors and Committees are always available to answer any questions you might have and to entertain suggestions for how to improve your experience as a veterinarian or allied professional interested in veterinary sports medicine and rehabilitation. So if you need us, feel free to contact us!

All my best,
Chris Zink_s signature

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, linda.blythe@oregonstate.edu. Thank you!
