Veterinary Students: Learn About Our Rehabilitation and Acupuncture Certification Programs and Our Student Discount

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. A maximum of five students may be enrolled in a module.

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. A minimum of three students must be enrolled in a module before it can be offered to students, with a maximum of five.

We encourage veterinary students to take advantage of the 20% discount off the tuition we are currently offering for both programs. Note that veterinary students are not eligible for this discount on courses they have taken or are currently taking. It would, however, apply to future modules.

Additional Guidelines:

  • Student registration for CCRT and CVAT modules will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Students must have fewer than 18 months between modules.
  • Students may receive the 20% discount on the final modules of the CCRT and CVAT programs for up to 6 months after graduation.

Registration: To register at discounted veterinary student rates, please select your courses from the Registration page and then on the Checkout page, click on the "Veterinary Student Discount" button. Please note that as part of the document upload process, you will be asked to upload a copy of your student ID to show veterinary student status.
