Dr. Daryl Buss, a professor emeritus and former chair of the UF College of Veterinary Medicine’s department of physiological sciences, has received the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges’ 2022 Billy E. Hooper Award for Distinguished Service.

Following his departure from UF in 1994 after more than 18 years at UF, Buss proceeded to serve for 17 years as dean of the University of Wisconsin’s School of Veterinary Medicine, retiring from that position in 2012. He then went on to become editor-in-chief of the AAVMC’s Journal of Veterinary Medical Education, a position held from 2013 to 2021.

Under his leadership, the journal expanded in scope and international outreach and made the transition from a purely print journal to a print/digital hybrid model.
