Welcome to the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation.

OUR MISSION
The American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation advances the art and science of veterinary medicine by promoting expertise in the structural, physiological, medical and surgical needs of athletic animals and the restoration of normal form and function after injury or illness.

WHY TO SEEK OUT AN ACVSMR DIPLOMATE

Whether the goal is to improve a family pet’s quality of life or to keep an athletic horse or dog performing and competing at its best – the diplomates of the ACVSMR are trained to fulfill these needs.

HOW TO BECOME AN ACVSMR DIPLOMATE
To become a diplomate of the ACVSMR, veterinarians must complete an internship (or equivalent) and a 3-year residency training program followed by a rigorous board-certification examination. To learn more about available residency programs, please visit our How to Become Board Certified page.
