Medical Acupuncture and Integrative Rehabilitation Veterinary Courses

At CuraCore VET, we teach veterinarians and veterinary students how to provide scientifically based techniques such as medical acupuncture, medical massage, photomedicine, and integrative rehabilitation. While medications and surgery have their place, integrative medical options should also be considered in animals’ treatment care plans. Decades of research have shown how these methods help animals heal and restore quality of life. Our top-notch educational offerings in integrative medicine and rehabilitation help practitioners stay in the profession longer by giving them the knowledge to work with animals in ways that align with their ethics and values.

The CuraCore VET curriculum is based on rational mechanisms of action and evidence backed by research. Our faculty draw from years of experience in both academia and private practice to share insights, wisdom, and enthusiasm. Courses include online and onsite options; they range from certification programs to advanced instruction. We also have educational opportunities for veterinary technicians and other healthcare professionals.  About our curriculum, we say, “No woo woo, just science.”  About our vision for safer and gentler health care, it’s “Together, we can change medicine. For good.”

integrative medicine community


The growing community of integrative veterinary medical practitioners is committed to providing effective treatment options outside of just surgery and medication. Let’s work to change the standards of veterinary medicine together.
