Why Are So Many Veterinarians Choosing MAV?

Many of our graduates came to the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course after reaching a point in their careers where they wanted to offer patients more than conventional methods that risked surgical complications, chronic pain, or intolerable side effects.

Contact Dr. Narda Robinson by email or call 970-223-3003 if you have questions.

What Makes MAV the MAIN™ Choice?

Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians (MAV) provides the only source for critically evaluated, scientifically based, and evidentially informed instruction in veterinary medical acupuncture and related techniques such as laser therapy and massage.

Our comprehensive, highly orchestrated curriculum guides students through acupuncture, neurophysiology, and neuromodulation. You will learn how to appropriately implement scientific Medical Acupuncture and Integrative Neuromodulation or the MAIN™ technique for:

  • Disk disease
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Back and neck pain
  • Digestive disorders
  • Cranial and peripheral neuropathy
  • Lameness
  • Voiding dysfunction
  • Arthritis
  • Functional restoration
  • Immune dysfunction
  • Reproductive health
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Recovery following trauma
  • Dermatologic issues
  • Ocular pain
  • And much more!

How long do I have access the online Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians modules?

You have one year from the date of registration to access the online modules.  Contact Dr. Narda Robinson if you need more than one year access to the modules.  We are working on membership plans to provide extended access for specific durations.

How does MAV differ from the other veterinary acupuncture programs available?

The Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course curriculum is based on science and evidence.  We encourage critical thinking and teach acupuncture from a structural and functional perspective.  We neither require nor encourage the adoption of belief-based ideologies such as the idea that acupuncture works through the movement of Chi (Qi) or other unfounded premises.

How long does it take to begin the program once I enroll?

After you submit your online registration and payment, and once your credentials (veterinary license or letter from your school) are verified and your payment has been received, Dr. Robinson will enroll you into the program.  It usually takes no longer than a week and often only 24-48 hours.

How much time does it take to become certified in medical acupuncture?

The length of time required to complete the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course will depend on you.  You will need to complete all ten or twelve modules (i.e., whether you are single or dual track, respectively) prior to the Clinical Intensive.  As long as you successfully complete 1) all post-module quizzes online, 2) all onsite assessments at your Clinical Intensive, and 3) the case report that is due 6 months after your Clinical Intensive, you should receive your certificate of completion and be considered certified as a veterinary medical acupuncturist.

Continuing Education Hours for Veterinarians

RACE approval for course pending.  Currently, please contact your state veterinary board if you need to apply these credits toward renewal of your license, in order to determine whether they will accept these hours.
