Vet Med and CVMA Welcome New Donald G. Low Fellows

September 21, 2011 

The UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and the California Veterinary Medical Association are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2011-2012 Donald G. Low-CVMA Practitioner Fellowship.

The fellowship provides a unique opportunity for practitioners to learn in the clinical setting of the William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital or other school programs. Each fellow spends 20 days in a selected service to improve general knowledge in an area of interest. The practitioner also shares the real-world experience and practical insights of private practice with faculty and veterinary students.

Fellows receive the awards based on the merit of in-depth proposals developed with faculty mentors. Fellows receive their training at no charge and gain 72 Continuing Education credits.

This year’s fellows and their service assignments are:

The California Veterinary Medical Association is the largest state veterinary medical association in the United States, with more than 6,000 members. Founded in 1888, its mission is to serve its membership and community through innovative leadership and to improve animal and human health in an ethically and socially responsible manner. The association led the campaign to fund this one-of-a-kind program and partners with the school to recruit and select fellows.
