Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner!

The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, Knoxville (UTC) and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Department of Physical Therapy cooperatively oversee this curriculum.
Physiotherapy, Rehabilitation and Sportsmedicine in Animals
For many years, animal physiotherapy, rehabilitation and sports medicine have been established in the veterinary field and are increasingly important in orthopaedic and neurologic cases but also in the training of sports- and working dogs. Additionally dogs with specific problems, like obesity, endocrine and even more heart disease need to be treated adequately. This requests a thoroughly understanding of the underlying condition, a highly educated specialist to evaluate the patient, to set up the treatment plan and finally to treat the animal successfully.
The University of Tennessee Certificate (UTC) Program in Canine Physical Rehabilitation was introduced in 1999 in the United States, and since has spread around the world!
The certificate program in canine rehabilitation is a sequence of postgraduate courses for veterinarians, physical therapists, and veterinary technicians, followed by a supervised clinical experience and a cumulative examination. The courses are designed to guide the practitioner through the theoretical foundations to the clinical applications of canine rehabilitation.
After successful completion of all canine rehabilitation online, e-learning and practical courses and the examination the participations receive the title “Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner”
