Guidelines for the DVM Student Session at the Leman Conference

Veterinary student, did you shadow a swine practitioner this summer or were involved in an interesting clinical case investigation? Did you work on your veterinary skills by designing a differential diagnosis list or working on a treatment plan? Did you investigate a problem by analyzing production records? We want to hear about it!

Call for case description:

The Allen D. Leman Swine Conference is organizing a session for veterinary students to demonstrate their problem-solving skills through the presentation of a case or experience where students challenged their clinical training and problem-solving capabilities necessary for day-to-day practice.
The session will take place on Sunday at the Allen D. Leman Swine Conference, from 1:00−2:45 p.m. at the Saint Paul RiverCentre and will include presentations from 7 veterinary students.

Case description guidelines and instructions:

  • This session primary goal is for students to identify a question they faced when they spent time in the swine industry. The question can relay to production issues (records analysis, performances) or to a clinical case. Some examples of relevant questions can be:
    • How to handle a respiratory case in finishing pigs?
    • What caused mortality observed in this farm?
    • Why did this farm production results drop between February and April?
    • How is the US swine industry different from the Brazilian one?
  • The case description must include the thought process and the steps followed by the student to solve/answer the question.
  • This session will reward students’ creativity: the use of new support material (video files, interviews) is encouraged and will be rewarded. Explain in the case description how you may incorporate this aspect in your presentation.

Submission process:

Submit your one-page case description (one column, font size 11) to Dr. Perle Boyer, pboyer@umn.edu by Tuesday, August 15 at midnight and you will be notified by Friday, September 1 whether your presentation has been selected. An optional file can be sent as an appendix to demonstrate creativity.

Awards:

Students invited to present will receive a $1,000 stipend, free admission to the Leman Swine Conference, and a copy of the Diseases of Swine book (10th edition).
