Veterinary Pet Insurance of Brea, Calif., and the Veterinary Business Management Assn. recently awarded 17 veterinary students with  either  a trip to the North American Veterinary Conference, held in January in Orlando, Fla., or a $1,000 cash award for demonstrating VPI Insurance  " know-how. "

The winners were judged on describing a clinical case and applying to it a benefits breakdown of a VPI Pet Insurance claim. The contest entries required an invoice, a case history, a defined diagnosis, treatment, claim form and a summary of pet insurance reimbursements. Winning submissions were selected based on overall effort, presentation and accuracy.

VPI says that the contest—designed on the premise that a veterinarian will not recommend a product/service unless they completely understand it—provides hands-on experience with the benefits of its pet insurance.

The Veterinary Business Management Assn. coordinated the contest on campuses that host the organization’s chapters. 

Participants included Auburn University; Cornell University; Louisiana State University; Michigan State University, Mississippi State University; Ohio State University; Oklahoma State University; Oregon State University; Tufts University; University of California, Davis; University of Illinois; University of Minnesota; University of Missouri; University of Pennsylvania; Virginal Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine; Western University; and Washington State University.
