PRIMA Certification

CuraCore’s newest certification program encompasses all aspects of integrative medicine.  PRIMA: Pain, Rehabilitation, Integrative Medicine Advantage is a superior approach to veterinary medicine, one that gives patients better pain control, improved healing, and exceptional outcomes.

PRIMA is a 5-part certification program that begins with PRIMA Acupuncture, also known as Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians, or MAV.  It proceeds in a step-wise manner through the integrative medicine and rehabilitation practices that modern, science-based veterinary practitioners need to know and provide.

The PRIMA method puts patients’ needs first by promoting hands on physical evaluations, pain assessments, and safe, non-invasive, health-promoting care.

Prerequisites and course content appear below.
