    grad student

    Annual Dues - Any student in an accredited veterinary college, university, or institution. This includes veterinary medical students, interns, residents, and grad students
    Ist das nur eine geläufige Abkürzung für "post-graduate student", also Doktorand?

    In USA und Kanada sind es Doktoranden, glaube ich. Zumindest hier im mittleren Westen.

    SuggestionGraduate student
    It's short for "graduate student." These are people who have completed the 4-year undergraduate course of study and are working towards a master's degree or doctorate.

    Thanks, strawberry :)

    So as I am a qualified vet trying to do my (unpaid) phD I would not fall under this category? (Any student in an accredited veterinary college, university, or institution. This includes veterinary medical students, interns, residents, and grad students) I am still considered a student in Germany, although I have just graduated...

    In AE, graduate students (= grad students) are any students at a level above undergraduate. They have completed their bachelor's degree, but they may be master's or PhD students, or law, medical, or business school (MBA) students.

    In some academic fields, if a master's degree doesn't bring much more in the job market than an undergraduate degree, these departments may not encourage or even offer terminal master's degree programs. So in these departments, the majority of grad students are in practice often doctoral students, but that's not the definition.

    AE and BE uses of 'postgraduate' are also different. In AE it normally means 'postdoctoral' (= further research or study after having received a PhD), but in BE it can mean the group that in AE are called graduate students.

    I can't say for sure what 'chapter' means in your example, but usually it means a local branch of a club or society. My guess would be that if there are enough students at your university to join as a group, they can all join for that rate, and they maybe only get one copy of the journal or whatever for the department instead of one per person, but they're all eligible to attend conferences and submit papers. But again, that's just a guess. You could certainly e-mail and ask.

    *f5* If you're officially already qualified, I'd say you're probably beyond an intern (first year of supervised clinical training, IIRC, following 2 years of classroom study in medical school) and maybe more like a resident (later years of specialized clinical training). (Caveat: I don't know how those terms are specifically defined in veterinary school, but the words are the same as for medical school in AE, for which there are past discussions in the forum.)

    However, if you're currently enrolled in grad school instead, focusing on research rather than advanced clinical study, then yes, I would think you were a grad student. Regardless of whether you get a stipend for it.

    But again, I don't think the professional society would mind if you just wrote and asked where you fit in to their categories. I imagine they would be inclined to be generous to anyone who's roughly in the student category.

    If I had wanted, I could have tried to get an internship somewhere (same terms in Veterinary medicine), but it's not yet so common to do that in Germany as in English speaking countries (not many internships around). I'm certainly even further away from being a resident, as that requires a one-year-internship beforehand :)

    So, yes, at present I'm "focusing on research" for a bit longer.

    Thank you so much for your very enlightening answers =)

    DW, hast Du #5 gelesen?
    #12Authorpenguin (236245) 04 Jun 08, 12:34
    Ich sollte definitv mehr Fisch essen.
    #13AuthorDW (EN) (241915) 04 Jun 08, 12:38
    Hi DW, meinst Du deswegen? ;oP

    "So erreichten Hühner ihr Schlachtgewicht heute doppelt so rasch wie vor 30 Jahren. Dabei stieg der Fettanteil von zwei auf 22 Prozent. Das Futter hat auch zu einer Veränderung der Balance der wichtigen Omega-3 und Omega-6-Fettsäuren bei den Hühnern geführt, die das Gehirn für ein problemloses Funktionieren benötigt. Im Gegensatz dazu führt die Einnahme von gesättigten Fetten zu einer Verlangsamung der Leistung des Gehirns. Der Konsum genau dieser Fette hat mit den Fertiggerichten immer mehr zugenommen.
    Heute essen die Menschen laut Studie 34 Prozent weniger Gemüse und zwei Drittel weniger Fisch als vor fünfzig Jahren. Gemüse und Fisch gelten als Hauptquellen für Omega-3-Fettsäuren. Derartige Veränderungen können mit Depressionen, Schizophrenie, Aufmerksamkeitsstörungen (ADHD) und Alzheimer in Zusammenhang stehen. Die Autoren der Studie rieten dringend zu einer gesünderen Ernährung mit mehr Gemüse und Fisch. Die Wissenschafterin Courtney Van de Weyer erklärte, dass die gute Nachricht darin bestehe, dass die richtige Ernährung für ein gesundes Gehirn jener für einen gesunden Körper entspreche"

    Dank Dir trotzdem für Deine Ausführungen :)
