In Our April 2020 Issue ...






In Memory of Fahren ... and more!
A Message from Our CEO, Janet Van Dyke, DVM, DACVSMR.courseupdate
 
As we all work to find our way during this most unusual period in our lives, I am once again amazed at the resilience and determination of the CRI faculty members. They have all worked tirelessly to create new and innovative ways to engage our active students and graduates with ongoing continuing education, and remind me of the silver lining that they are finding in this work.
 
Our initial charge has been to create live, interactive, RACE-approved webinars that we have titled "CRI Faculty Hot Topics." Sessions range from Rehabilitation for the Canine IVDD Patient, to Rehabilitation of the Pre- or Non-Surgical Canine CCL Patient, to Therapeutic Exercise in Canine Rehabilitation for Home Exercises - the first of three TherEx webinars. Many more webinars are in the works, so please check our website for details.
 
Our Acupuncture Faculty has also been developing online learning, and now has a series of 6 live, interactive webinars that take place on Wednesdays at 4PM EDT. Anyone who is already practicing acupuncture or has started training through CRI's Certified Veterinary Acupuncture Therapist program is welcome to join in.
 
We have converted our Business of Canine Rehabilitation to a hybrid online/live, interactive course and will be releasing details shortly about our plans to do the same with our Kinesiotaping and Clinical Orthopedic Rehabilitation courses. What we are discovering through all of these new offerings, is that our students appreciate the opportunity to review the material, have some time to put some new techniques into their practice, and then return to the next live session armed with questions they wouldn't otherwise have known they had.
 
Dr. Janet Van Dyke We will continue to monitor the WHO, CDC, as well as state and local restrictions and will keep all of our currently registered students apprised of our plans. I close by wishing you all well. Remain vigilant, wash your hands, connect with loved ones remotely. In the wise words of CRI faculty member Ross Palmer, "If you're a face-toucher, consider wearing an E. collar. I'm sure your dog would be happy to remind you that it's for your own good."

Special Offer! Evidence-Based Resources at Your Fingertips - From Canine Arthritis Resources & EducationCARE

Osteoarthritis is one of the most common conditions you will see in your practice, with at least 1 in 5 dogs developing the disease in their lifetime. As the leading cause of chronic pain, OA can have a significant impact on the quality of life for your patients, and for your clients who are caring for dogs in pain.
 
While OA isn't curable, the earlier you can identify and manage it, the better impact you can have on your patients' quality of life. With CARE, you'll find tools, resources, and evidence-based information to help aid you in your practice.

PT Students: You Can Now Register for Rehabilitation Certification Courses Before Completing Your Degreept

Attention, physical therapists and PT students! You can now register for CRI courses during your final year in PT school and start your certification as a canine rehabilitation therapist as soon as you have graduated and are licensed! We will NO LONGER require that you graduate before registering for courses. This will allow you to achieve your dream of working with animals much sooner!
 
Physical therapy students can register for any courses that licensed physical therapists can take, but you cannot start the courses until you graduate and are licensed. To become certified as a CCRT, you must complete the three required courses plus a 40-hour internship. In addition, you must have completed one year of clinical experience in human physical therapy after receiving your PT license.
 
Have questions? Contact us at info@caninerehabinstitute.com. We are very excited to continue helping more and more PTs along this exciting journey!  
Veterinary Students: Have You Heard About the Changes to Our Rehabilitation and Acupuncture Certification Programs?vetstudentprograms

Veterinary student with white dog We know that veterinary students that graduate with certifications in veterinary rehabilitation and/or acupuncture have more to offer a potential employer. But finances and school schedules can make this additional training very challenging. With this in mind, CRI has made adjustments to our rehabilitation and acupuncture certification programs just for veterinary students.

Certification in Canine Rehabilitation (CCRT): Students can start their training by taking Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation any time after their first year. They can then take the second module, Clinical Skills, any time after their second year. After their third year, they can take the last module, Clinical Applications, followed by a 40-hour internship. Certification will be awarded when the students obtain their veterinary licenses.

Certification in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture (CVAT): Students can start their training by taking Introduction to Veterinary Medical Acupuncture any time after their first year. They can then take the second module, Veterinary Medical Acupuncture for Sports Medicine/Rehabilitation Patients any time after their second year, and the last module, Canine and Feline Medical Acupuncture, any time after their third year. Certification will be awarded when the students obtain their veterinary licenses.

We encourage veterinary students to take advantage of the 20% discount off the tuition we are currently offering. We are also in discussions with our sponsor companies to develop tuition assistance programs.

For complete details, please see our Veterinary Student Certification page or contact us at info@caninerehabinstitute.com.
In Memory of Fahren. breezie

Everyone at CRI was deeply saddened to learn of the unexpected passing of Fahren, the beloved companion of Jerry Neal, a Colorado-based videographer who works with CRI to create video content.
 
Fahren, a 9-year-old French bulldog, received the Breezie Demo Dog of the Month Award in July 2019. He loved being a demo dog for CRI's classes at Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital and ran toward the entrance as soon as he arrived. Students loved Fahren for his patience during hands-on learning as well as his intelligence, easy-going personality, and sense of humor.

CRI has made a donation in Fahren's memory to The Tayla Fund, a non-profit fund established at Coral Springs Animal Hospital to help families in need to receive rehabilitation services for their pets.
The Tayla Fund Please Support The Tayla Fundtayla

CRI is pleased to announce the creation of The Tayla Fund, in memory of Tayla, a long-time favorite demo dog and the beloved companion of Janessa Shine, an O.R. nurse at Coral Springs Animal Hospital.

Donations to The Tayla Fund are tax-deductible and will be used to pay for rehabilitation at Coral Springs Animal Hospital for clients who cannot afford it.

During this challenging time when many people are facing temporary unemployment, it is even more important to be generous and help us support those in need.

Dr. Janet Van Dyke, CRI's founder and CEO, made the first donation to launch The Tayla Fund.

To make a tax-deductible donation, use the button below to donate to Coral Springs Animal Hospital's charitable fund through the Veterinary Care Charitable Fund. Please be sure to select Coral Springs Animal Hospital as the recipient and specify "The Tayla Fund" in the Donor Name(s) for Public Recognition section of the donation form.

Tayla was the December 2018 recipient of the Breezie Demo Dog of the Month Award. During her long career with CRI, she helped train hundreds of veterinarians, physical therapists, and veterinary nurses/technicians.
Our Updated CCRT Curriculum Begins in 2020!ccrt     

We are excited to announce our updated Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT) program for veterinarians and physical therapists.

Starting January 1, 2020, the three modules for CCRT certification will be:
  • Module 1: Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation. The content of this module will remain essentially the same. This is a 5-day course.
     
  • Module 2: Clinical Skills (formerly called Canine Rehabilitation Therapist). Students will be introduced to clinical assessment, goal setting, treatment planning, and outcome measurement from a physical therapy perspective. This is a 5-day course.
     
  • Module 3: Clinical Applications. This is a new hands-on course where students will be able to practice their evaluation skills, create assessments, and present treatment plans for all types of canine rehabilitation cases. This is a 3-day course.
     
  • Internship: A 40-hour internship remains a requirement for CCRT certification.
These changes only apply to the CCRT certification program for veterinarians and physical therapists. There is NO change to the CCRVN/CCRA curriculum for veterinary technicians/nurses.

Please see the CCRT page on our website for more details and the options for current students. Register today to reserve your seat!
