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.

We invite you to learn more about American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation and our board certification requirements. Veterinarians from all countries are invited to apply for board certification through the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Applications for credentials submission for the January 2015 board-certification examinations are no longer being accepted.

We will reopen the application process again on May 1, 2015 for the next board-certification examination in January 2016. All credentials submissions must be received by August 1, 2015 for the January 2016 examinations.

The Initial Applicant path to board certification is for those individuals who have sufficient credentials to submit for examination without completing any additional training requirements. The Credentials committee will accept credential submissions from all qualified candidates.
