Len Cullen Veterinary Anaesthesia Award

The Len Cullen Veterinary Anaesthesia Award was established in 2012 with an endowment provided by Emeritus Associate Professor Len Cullen.

The key purpose of the Award is to promote learning in the subject disciplines of veterinary anaesthesia and/or analgesia for Residents and Registrars (employed by the University) through travel.

The Award primarily supports travel costs to attend a conference or meeting (including American College of Veterinary Anaesthesiologists, European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia and Australian College of Veterinary Scientists Anaesthesia Chapter) where papers and or seminars relevant to veterinary anaesthesia and or analgesia are presented, which ultimately, will be helpful for examination preparation. If there are sufficient funds, the cost of the undertaking for which the travel is necessary, that is, registration costs can be claimed. Funds may not be used to support accommodation costs.


One award is available.
