BSA/Dechra Awards for veterinary professionals 2018

Blå Stjärnan Akademin and Dechra, our Diamond Sponsor, are partners in helping veterinary professionals increase their knowledge and skills. Since 2015, Blå Stjärnan Akademin every year grants two Awards for veterinary professionals, in cooperation with the Diamond Sponsor for the BSA Congress. The BSA/Dechra Awards, worth 20 000 SEK per winner, offer two veterinary professionals the opportunity to increase their knowledge within veterinary medicine. The Award can be used to complete an externship at a clinic or university abroad or to finance a study project within veterinary medicine.
