Each academic year, the Western College of Veterinary Medicine hosts two awards programs: the fall awards program in late September and the spring awards program in late May that's held in conjunction with the annual WCVM Graduation Banquet.
During the fall event, awards are presented to members of all WCVM undergraduate class years while the spring event's awards are directed to members of the College's graduating class. In addition, other awards for graduate students, faculty and staff are presented during the two events.
Each year, the College awards the WCVM Faculty Gold Medal to the graduating veterinary student who has displayed the highest general proficiency in the science and art of veterinary medicine during the four years of the veterinary curriculum.
As part of the honour, award recipients have often been profiled in The Ark or in other WCVM news sources. Please click on the following links to read about some of our most recent WCVM Faculty Gold Medal recipients.
