History

 

   

The STVM is made up of scientists, veterinarians and students from more than 40 countries with common interests in tropical veterinary medicine. It was founded in 1978 as the American Society for Tropical Veterinary Medicine but proposed to become an international organization at its Biennial Meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1991. A new constitution was drawn up with the name, Society for Tropical Veterinary Medicine, and was approved by the membership.

 

Dr. Jim Williams, President of the Society, worked with an artist to develop the logo. The STVM encourages student participation in the organization and sponsors two student awards. The Norval-Young Award provides support for a student to attend the Biennial Meeting and the Career Development Award provides support for a training program in some area of tropical veterinary medicine.
