December 2020 – March 2021

Welcome

The American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation is pleased to present our annual continuing education program virtually! While we all miss the collegiality of an in-person meeting, ACVSMR remains dedicated to providing high-quality educational programs on important topics in sports medicine and rehabilitation as well as fostering research in the specialty.

Our winter and spring modules will cover a variety of topics both species-specific as well as those that have applicability across both equine and canine medicine. We will also have presentations of short research and evidence-based medicine topics to promote high-quality research and presentation of research results in the field of sports medicine and rehabilitation. We look forward to having you join us for the continuation of our virtual continuing education program.

Each monthly module has a separate registration. Click the links below to learn about each month’s program and register.

* These programs has been approved for continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval for attendees who participated in the live sessions.
