The AAEP Student Programs Committee is soliciting case presentations in a poster format from any student members of the AAEP for the purpose of display to all members at the Annual Convention. The presentation of a poster will allow students to present cases of interest to one another and other members. It will also highlight student involvement in student chapters and will allow students to demonstrate initiative to future employers. In addition, it will provide students the opportunity to formally present at AAEP and this might allow students to attend Convention with a more acceptable reason to travel to the meeting in the eyes of their college’s administration. Cases might include those seen in summer jobs, or at veterinary school.

Submissions are due to Sadie Boschert, Student Programs Coordinator: October 8, 2018
