The French Fellowship was created in October 2016 to honor Dr. Denny French, DABVP (Equine Practice). Dr. French earned his Diplomate status in 1985 and has gone on to serve the ABVP in nearly every role imaginable – Credentials Chair, Examination Chair, ABVS Liaison, and all executive offices. Proceeds from this fellowship program will go to veterinary students to attend the Annual ABVP Symposium.
I am honored to have this fellowship created with my name attached. My hope is that it will provide others with the same opportunity to experience the camaraderie and richness of the Diplomates of ABVP. I believe that once engaged in the organization, the daunting aspect of credentialing will not be as difficult. I was provided additional assistance (financial and emotional) early in my career and this fellowship will hopefully provide similar support to many others in the future.
– Dr. Denny French

I decided to apply for the ABVP scholarship because a Diplomate once told me that the quality of the people in the ABVP community is outstanding. When I attended the Symposium, I was able to understand exactly what he had meant. The whole time I was there, kind and compassionate veterinarians came up to me to introduce themselves and ensure that I was welcomed. It was clear throughout the lectures that these veterinarians strived to improve the veterinary field and practice quality medicine which was beyond the standard of care that many clients expect. The ABVP community is one unlike any other, and I am so grateful that I had the chance to become a part of it for a few days. The Symposium provided me with a great opportunity for networking, and I actually completed an externship with one of the veterinarians who I met while I was there. I had an amazing time at the Symposium, and I would love to return as a Diplomate in the future.
