Doug Byars, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM, of Georgetown, Ky., was the first private equine veterinarian to receive the Robert W. Kirk Award for Professional Excellence in the award’s 18-year history. Byars received the award at the 25th annual American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) Forum in June. The Kirk Award “honors individuals who have provided meritorious contributions to the veterinary profession.”


“The 2007 recipient of the Kirk Award is a pioneer, a visionary, and has been an important voice for veterinary medicine, particularly equine medicine and the horse industry, for 33 years,” said Thomas Divers, DVM, Dipl. ACECC, ACVIM, a professor of medicine at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, before presenting Byars with the award. “His pioneering success in establishing a valued role for equine internist in private practice opened the door for the many equine internists in private practice today.”
