Fellowship Day 2019 - Save the date

29 May 2019

Fellowship day

We will be holding our fourth annual RCVS Fellowship Day on Friday 20 September 2019 at The Royal Institution in Mayfair, London.

Hosted by Professor Nick Bacon, Chair of the RCVS Fellowship Board, Fellowship Day 2019 will welcome the fourth cohort of Fellows to be awarded under the new Fellowship initiative. It will also provide a forum to celebrate the achievements of Fellows and facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience, encouraging a thriving learning society.

“Fellowship Day is about celebrating the achievement of established members of the profession and gives us a chance to learn more about their work. Through these kinds of events, we foster a society of Fellows who can share their knowledge and generate discussion, to enhance animal welfare standards for the benefit of the profession, the scientific community, and the public as a whole,” says Nick.

We will also be inviting Fellows to participate in 'Fellows in Focus' sessions on the day, in which any FRCVS can give a 10-minute talk on an interesting topic of their choice, in the world-famous surroundings of the Faraday Lecture Theatre. We will be writing to Fellows in due course to invite submissions for this part of the programme.

There will also be a session dedicated to ‘Fellows of the Future’, building on the success of this student competition at Fellowship Day 2018 where six veterinary undergraduates and postgraduates presented excellent presentations. This competition is open to all UK-based veterinary students, including undergraduates, postgraduates and recent graduates, who would like to present some of their original research in no longer than five minutes. Further details will be available on the RCVS website shortly at www.rcvs.org.uk/fellowshipday.

As well as inviting all RCVS Fellows, any RCVS members who would like to learn more about the Fellowship are very welcome to attend. To this end, the College is encouraging all Fellows to invite as their guests any Members of the RCVS who are interested in potentially applying for the Fellowship.

Tickets to the event will be available soon. More information, including keynote speakers and Fellows in Focus topics, will be available soon.  

Those with any questions about attending the event should contact the RCVS Events team on events@rcvs.org.uk.
