“The ability to have the hands on experience and mentoring helped to reinforce the concepts taught in the CRI course, and ensured I was applying them appropriately. Seeing the modalities used in practice and adjusted for the individual cases was very insightful. The other huge benefit was the opportunity to see the diagnostic process from start to finish with a variety of cases."
–Stephanie Finley, DVM, CCRT,
Port Deposit, MD


“I am very much a 'hands on' learner. The information I gleaned from this internship, as well as observing the business and logistic side of a rehab practice cannot be learned from writing up a case report. It might be more expensive, as most of us must take a week off from our practices/job and pay for travel, hotel, food, etc, but it is worth every minute and penny spent. Thank you for continuing to re-evaluate and improve the CRI course. (It’s a darn awesome course already!)"

The CRI Internship Program gives our students the valuable opportunity for hands-on learning under the supervision of a veterinarian or physical therapist trained in canine rehabilitation. This is the final step for both CCRT and CCRA candidates.

Students that have successfully completed all coursework and passed their exams will choose a clinical mentor from an ever-growing list of CRI-approved sites located around the world.

Some sites do not accept interns who are located within what they consider to be the radius of their practice. When you contact a practice to inquire about an internship, please ask if there are any restrictions.
