Posted July 1, 2013

 

Bayer HealthCare announced the winners of scholarships at the inaugural Bayer Excellence in Communication Awards in May. The company created the program to highlight the importance of effective communication between veterinarians and clients and to reward veterinary students who are mastering this skill.

The company selected seven veterinary colleges to pilot the program. The colleges filmed and judged communication between students and clients in a clinical setting.

The winner from each school received a $2,500 scholarship and competed for an additional $2,500. The national winner is Jessica Bridge, who is beginning her fourth year at Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences.
