The role of VAHL is to foster innovation and promote excellence in veterinary medical education.

VAHL has gained the worldwide reputation of offering and conducting high-quality, academic CPD programs. The close collaboration of the University of Tennessee (UT), USA with  VAHL with their comprehensive canine and equine rehabilitation certification programs take a candidate from the anatomical and physiological basis of veterinary rehabilitation and current physical modalities to implementing a contemporary rehabilitation program.

Physiotherapy, rehabilitation and sports medicine have been incorporated into veterinary medicine for many years. Their importance is increasingly recognized in orthopedics and neurology as well as in the training of canine and equine athletes and working dogs. It has expanded as a viable treatment option for specific canine diseases including obesity, endocrine disease and heart disease. Thoroughly understanding the animal's underlying disease or condition, highly educated specialists evaluate the patient, set up an effective treatment plan and successfully treat the patient.
