The American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation is pleased to present our annual continuing education program virtually! While we all miss the collegiality of an in-person meeting, ACVSMR remains dedicated to providing high-quality educational programs on important topics in sports medicine and rehabilitation as well as fostering research in the specialty.
In this first of five modules we will be focusing on evidenced-based medicine and research. Dr. Marti Drum, a leader in the field of rehabilitation, will start out the session by delivering the Keynote Address on the scientific evidence in equine and canine rehabilitation. Continuing this focus on research, the two winning abstracts from the ACVSMR competitive abstract program will be presented, showcasing some of the recent research in sports medicine and rehabilitation. High-quality research and evidence-based veterinary medicine is vital component in the advancement of all veterinary specialties. With this in mind we have invited three top-notch researchers to present topics on the development and evaluation of clinical research. These topics, while focusing on the field of sports medicine and rehabilitation will provide valuable information for Diplomates, practitioners, residents, and interns interested in advancing evidence based veterinary medicine across all specialties.
