Ladies and gentlemen,

1st OIE KNOWLEDGE OLYMPICS IN THE AMERICAS – “Knowledge Beyond Borders”

The World Organisation for Animal Health – OIE Regional Representation for the Americas is developing the first ever OIE Knowledge Olympics aimed at Veterinary Students and Veterinary Practitioners. The first and second rounds will be held on March 2 and 9, 2016, respectively.

The OIE Knowledge Olympics will involve the 29 OIE Member Countries of the Americas. Veterinarians registered in or with licenses granted by the Veterinary Colleges or, in the absence of the latter, Veterinary Associations, are invited to participate in this important event. Moreover, veterinary students taking a degree in Veterinary Medicine on a regular basis are also invited to take part in the Olympics.

The winners of the OIE Knowledge Olympiads for the Americas will be both awarded an 8 day trip to Paris to attend the OIE General Session on May 22 to 27th, 2016, and a visit to the Veterinary Faculty of Paris. All expenses, including the plane ticket, accommodation, meals, visa arrangements and medical insurance, will be covered by the OIE.
