The Aquatic Health Chapter of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists is keen to promote the field of aquatic animal health within veterinary schools in Australia and has established the ‘Dr Barry Munday Memorial Student Prize in Aquatic Animal Health’. The College Chapter seeks your assistance in nominating a suitable candidate from your respective institution for the 2014 prize. One prize is on offer for the top candidate from all nominations.
We are seeking nominations for students who have shown demonstrable interest in this field or have exhibited a high level of academic and practical competence in the aquatic animal health teaching program of your respective veterinary institution. The nomination is focused on students in either 4th or 5th year of the veterinary degree or in other year classes when the aquatic animal health program is taught.
Nominations should provide a brief description of the student’s background and some indication of their interests and goals in the field of aquatic animal health. Nominations are to be completed by the student and lecturer /course instructor in the aquatic animal health teaching program.
The closing date for nominations is 30 September 2014. Nominations may be emailed to Richmond Loh (firstname.lastname@example.org), Hon. Secretary, Australian & NZ College of Veterinary Scientists (Aquatic Animal Health Chapter).
The successful student (based on selection criteria in the form and voted by Chapter members) will be awarded with the 2010 edition of E.J.Noga’s -Fish Disease – diagnosis and treatment 2nd edition. This very practical text is considered one of the leading publications in the field of aquatic animal health, valued at $AUD125.
