The Bourgelat Award is the BSAVA’s primary recognition for really outstanding international contributions to the fields of small animal practice or science in their widest context. Nominations can include science as well as practice, but are limited to vets.
2023 Winner – Dr Greg Lisciandro DVM DipACVECC DipABVP
Dr Lisciandro received this award for several reasons. The first edition of his book Point-of-Care Ultrasound Techniques for the Small Animal Practitioner has changed and improved how veterinary practitioners diagnose and manage patients. Not only has he recently published a multi-author second edition but he has also collaborated with other world-leading veterinary surgeons, researching point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) and published these findings in a range of well-respected veterinary journals.
Dr Lisciandro and his wife Stephanie regularly run courses to train veterinary surgeons with their global FAST examination and produce monthly webinars.
