|A Message from Our CEO, Janet Van Dyke, DVM, DACVSMR.
Fall is here, and we are hard at work making sure our students continue to get the innovative and comprehensive education CRI is known for, even during this challenging time. Since our last newsletter, nearly 30 students have completed the hybrid version of our Clinical Skills
module. This included pre-course work, six weekly Zoom sessions, and three in-person lab days with students in small groups to allow for social distancing. Our CCRVN candidates have completed their Zoom training and will attend in-person labs at the end of October. Zoom sessions for our next Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation
module have begun, and those students will attend live lab sessions in early November. Our instructors have been busy!!!
Our 3-day acupuncture certification courses will be held as scheduled and in-person, with class size limited to 10 students. We will be offering Canine and Feline Medical Acupuncture
(Module 3) again on February 19-21, 2021. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information or to reserve a seat in this popular course.
We will soon be opening registration for courses scheduled for the first quarter of 2021. We anticipate that the canine rehabilitation certification modules will be offered in a hybrid version at least through the first half of next year. Any changes would be based on CDC guidelines and would be communicated to registrants and posted on our website.
Rest assured that the safety of our faculty and students remains our top priority. A heartfelt thanks to our staff, faculty, and students who have shown amazing creativity, resilience, patience, and perseverance during these unprecedented times.
Enjoy the autumn season and please stay safe.
Janet B. Van Dyke, DVM, Diplomate American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, CCRT
Founder and CEO

- Amanda Benton, VMD, Coral Springs, Florida
|Residents: Need to Complete a Research Project?

Visit our website to learn more about our special discount for ACVSMR and VOS residents. Residents: join VOS to get 25% off the tuition!
"I absolutely loved this class. Chris's enthusiasm for research as well as her openness to people who are not in academia as nascent researchers was refreshing. As someone who went directly into practice rather than the internship route, it was very helpful in defining the research process from how to form a solid hypothesis from a germ of an idea all the way to writing the paper. It also provided a basis to read journal articles with a more critical eye. The tips that Chris provided from her years of experience in the research field were invaluable."
- Beth Ellen McNamara, DVM, CCRT, CVMA, CVAT, Harrison, Maine
"I learnt a great deal during this course and look forward to putting it into practice. Thank you."
- Tanya Grantham, BVSc, CVA, CCRP, CCBW, Benoni, Gauteng, South Africa
"Wonderful course - I learned so much."
- Sheradan Pate, DVM, CVA, CCRT, Pismo Beach, Hawaii
During the course, students receive a comprehensive introduction to clinical research in the veterinary setting, covering the entire process from concept to publication.
|Earn Your Acupuncture Certification in 2021!
If you are already certified in acupuncture, be sure to check out our accelerated program for more hands-on training and increased knowledge of neurophysiology-based acupuncture.
"I felt as though I gained far more from Module 2 [Veterinary Medical Acupuncture for Sports Medicine/Rehabilitation Patients] than Module 1, but not necessarily due to the fact that the module was better. It had far more to do with the amount of needling practice that I was able to do in the weeks separating the two courses ... the increase in confidence in the actual needle handling and point finding allowed me to focus far more on the finer points of learning new areas to choose for specific conditions."
- Erin True, DVM, CCRT, Elk Grove, California
We also have scheduled our next acupuncture modules through April 2021.
If you are interested in taking these courses, please email us at email@example.com
. Our acupuncture modules are held in-person with small groups and social distancing.

"Super helpful course! Thank you!"
- Stephanie Kindred, DVM, CCRT, Winter Garden, Florida

CARE was founded by CRI faculty member Kristin Kirkby Shaw, DVM, MS, PhD, CCRT, DACVS, DACVSMR

|PT Students: You Can Now Register for Rehabilitation Certification Courses Before Completing Your Degree
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 email@example.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?
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.

Our Updated CCRT Curriculum Begins in 2020!
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.

Congratulations to Milo, Our Breezie Demo Dog of the Month!
Our September Breezie Demo Dog Award Winner is Milo, a 10-year old Golden who came from KG Retrievers in Colorado. Milo (full name: Milo MX MXJ MJB OF T2B RATO CZ8B CGCA TKN) has competed in Agility for 8 years, retiring recently as he pursues new sports such as dock diving and nose work where he has begun earning legs toward titles. He has titles in Barn Hunt, Trick Dog, and Rally. He also has earned his Senior Jumper title in Dock Dogs and Rally Level 2 in World Cynosports Rally Limited.
Milo's mom, Lori Beach, describes him as "a joy, with a sweet soul who loves all people. In fact, at the dog park, he ignores the other dogs but insists upon meeting all of the people."
This personality combined with his very fit body makes Milo a superb demo dog!
In recognition of this honor, Milo will receive a gift bag from Jiminy's
valued at $50. Congratulations, Milo, and enjoy your yummy Jiminy's treats!
|The Breezie Demo Dog of the Month Award is given in memory of Breezie, who was the lead demo dog for our Coral Springs courses for more than 9 years and helped to educate more than 800 veterinary and physical therapy professionals. She was such a great demo dog that our faculty would beg to have her in their small group sessions. Breezie's favorite holiday was Halloween when she was always the best dressed dog in Coral Springs!|
