The American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation is the educational project of Homecoming Farm, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)3 charitable organization. It was created in 1995 by Dr. Sheila Lyons. The ACVSMR provides education to veterinarians, veterinary students, equine studies students, farriers and horsemen in proactive veterinary sports medicine and rehabilitation to protect animals from injury and to ensure full recovery through expert physical medicine and rehabilitation services. Our unique educational programs and clinical services are modeled after those in the analogous human medical specialties. We maintain relationships with physician experts to stay current on new methodologies in practice and to conduct research on the transfer of these methods to athletic animal patients.
