Veterinarian Presented with First Ever CVMA Outstanding Achievement Award

July 28, 2021

The CVMA would like to honour a special veterinarian for his integral role in helping communicate pertinent information to veterinary teams during the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only has he hosted 15 of CVMA’s Veterinary Townhall Webinars – Navigating through COVID-19, but he has answered countless queries and provided his much sought-after guidance in clinic operations and practical applications.

The recipient of the first ever CVMA Outstanding Achievement Award graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree and spent time in private practice prior to completing a large animal internal medicine residency and Doctor of Veterinary Science graduate program. He is now a Professor at the Ontario Veterinary College, Director of the University of Guelph Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses, Chief of Infection Control at the Ontario Veterinary College Health Sciences Centre, and is a member of the Tripartite Global Leaders Group on Antimicrobial Resistance. He is a veterinary internist, a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences, and has an active research program focusing on infectious diseases, particularly those that can be transmitted between animals and people. He lives outside of Guelph, Ontario with his family and a collection of pets, including a dog, cats, fish, and occasionally small livestock. We present the CVMA Outstanding Achievement Award to Dr. Scott Weese in recognition of his valuable contributions made to the veterinary profession during extraordinary circumstances.
