Clinical Sciences faculty receive prestigious national awards

Drs. Teresa Burns and John Hubbell recognized by AAVC

The American College of Veterinary Clinicians (AAVC) has recognized Dr. John Hubbell with the 2010 Clinical Faculty Achievement Award and Dr. Teresa Burns with the 2010 Large Animal Residency Award. All member institutions of the AAVC are allowed to nominate one resident and one faculty member annually for the awards. It is unusual for both nominees from a single institution to win their respective award.

Dr. Burns was one of the two recipients nationally chosen for the Residency Award, which is based upon level of scholarly productivity and the quality of clinical service and teaching provided at their respective institutions. The correspondence regarding Dr. Burns selection states in part, "It is quite apparent from your curriculum vita and recommendations that you are a most deserving selection for this award since it is an award specifically intended to acknowledge residents who have demonstrated outstanding clinical expertise, scholarship, and potential to contribute to the veterinary profession." The award includes a plaque and a $1,000 check. Dr. Burns is currently a Clinical Instructor in Equine Field Service, and is pursuing her PhD studies involving the role of inflammation in equine metabolic syndrome and associated laminitis. Drs. Catherine Kohn, Phoebe Smith, Jim Belknap and Kate Hayes-Ozello helped prepare the nomination packet.

Dr. Hubbell was recognized with the Clinical Faculty Achievement Award, which is given to a member of the AAVC who, for at least five years, has achieved recognition for his or her efforts on behalf of veterinary medicine. The correspondence regarding Dr. Hubbell's award states that "Dr. Hubbell was selected because of his excellence in academic practice, teaching, research and administration. The award was presented to Dr. Hubbell for his outstanding record of service and contributions to the veterinary profession both nationally and internationally, for which his colleagues will be forever grateful." The award includes a plaque and a $2,500 check. Dr. Hubbell is a professor in the Anesthesiology and Pain Management Service, has served as interim dean of the college on two occasions, and is currently serving as the head of the Equine Service. He also won the OVMA Veterinarian of the Year award in 2009. Drs. Diane Mason (Kansas State University), Rich Bednarski, John Bonagura and Kate Hayes-Ozello assisted with preparation of the nomination package.
