The American College of
Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation®
Programs for veterinarians and farriers-
Programs for veterinary students-
If you’re looking for advanced educational programs in the field of veterinary sports medicine and rehabilitation and new career opportunities, The American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation® ("ACVSMR") provides lectures, classes, clinical seminars, workshops, internships and externships, research fellowships and more to its students worldwide.
Our mission objective is to improve health for all athletic and service animals while optimizing athletic potential and safety through continued research, education and proactive veterinary services. The ACVSMR has distinguished itself by virtue of its unique focus and adherence to the standards and practices of the analogous human medical specialty fields.
Through our work, new jobs are created in the veterinary profession and animal industries for paraprofessionals who wish to work with horses in this emerging specialty field.
The American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation® ("ACVSMR") is the name for the educational project of Homecoming Farm, Inc., a nonprofit 501c3 organization, that was created by Doctor Lyons in 1996 and which conducts research and provides education to veterinarians; veterinary students; veterinary physical therapists; farriers; researchers; horsemen; equine health care managers and others worldwide. It is modeled after the human medical specialty in its scientific methods, educational structure for paraprofessionals; and maintains relationships with physician advisors so that we can take full advantage of ongoing developments in the human specialty field. Affiliations have been established with equine rescue organizations for the purpose of partnering with our educational programs so that veterinary students can get hands on experience in the new techniques and so that the horses have an opportunity to recover.
