Announcing ICVA’s 2022 Assessment Grant Winners

The 2022 ICVA Assessment Grant Winners are Sarah M. Cavanaugh, DVM, MS, DACVIM (Cardiology); Robert O. Gilbert, BVSc, MMedVet, DACT, FRCVS; and W. Brady Little, DVM, MSc. Congratulations to all three investigators from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.

Their winning proposal is “Holistic admissions review: A tool to predict early performance in veterinary school including use of novel indicators.” This study will analyze non-academic and academic application data and committee review scores of first-year veterinary students to develop a model to predict the likelihood of academic difficulty during the first and second semesters of the veterinary curriculum.

Our March In Focus newsletter shares more about the grant winners.
