Congratulations Niamh & Tom

Scone Equine Hospital - Friday, July 21, 2017
Congratulations Niamh & Tom

Congratulations to SEH Internal Medicine Specialist Dr Niamh Collins on receiving the 2017 CEVA Education Scholarship at this year's Bain Fallon Memorial Lectures.

This is a generous award and will provide important funding for Niamh’s research project entitled ‘Diagnostic utility of peritoneal to blood lactate ratios in foals with colic’. The project will investigate the use of peritoneal and systemic blood lactate concentrations in differentiating foals with medical versus surgical colic.

SEH Surgical Intern Tom O'Brien also experienced success at the recent Bain Fallon Awards. Tom received the EVA Norm Larkin Prize which is sponsored by Virbac.

This prize was open to all veterinarians (except for those members who are eligible for the Reginald Pascoe Prize), who present the best clinical or research paper at the combined ANZCVS/EVA abstract session. The topic may include any clinical or research project exclusively involved with horses.

Tom's research article was entitled ‘Bacterial isolates, antimicrobial sensitivity patterns and factors associated with short term outcome in 115 foals with septic arthritis (2009-2015)’

Well done Niamh and Tom, both fantastic achievements!
