The ACVA offers more than continuing professional development for veterinarians in acupuncture - they also promote veterinary acupuncture education and research within Australia and the Asia-Pacific.

The ACVA are experts at teaching the International Veterinary Society (IVAS) acupuncture course to graduate Veterinarians and providing continuing veterinary acupuncture education since 1991.

Since then our team has taught over 400 students from Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Japan.  Whilst acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine, we use modern technology to deliver it to our students helped by our experienced tutors and are proud to have delivered the very first online IVAS course worldwide in 2012.

The ACVA can make your life easier by providing you with the knowledge and clinical skills that allows you to offer another treatment modality to your clients, especially those difficult musculoskeletal cases that don’t respond to medication. Once you have gained your IVAS Certification recognised worldwide, you will be confident in discussing acupuncture with your clients and be able to increase the number of cases you are able to treat within your veterinary hospital.
