IMPORTANT UPDATES:


VETERINARY PHYSIOTHERAPY UPDATES

The SAVC wishes to bring all veterinary physiotherapists on board within the next two years. The SAVC Veterinary Physiotherapy Sub-Committee has completed the evaluation of applications received and made recommendations to Council on 31 July 2019. Written communication has been sent to individual applicants. Kindly contact Lenora Erasmus (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) if you have applied, but not received communication due to a change in contact details.

ATTENTION: ALL CPD PROVIDERS

A new para-veterinary profession, veterinary physiotherapist, has been promulgated in December 2017. The SAVC Veterinary Physiotherapy Sub-Committee has completed the reviewing of applications for registration under various sections of the Veterinary and Para-Veterinary Professions Act, Act 19 of 1982. All CPD providers are hereby informed that they may proceed with the application for CPD accreditation for veterinary physiotherapists, given that the life cycle of an accredited activity is six (6) years. It has to be noted that persons will only be able to claim the CPD points once they are registered. Attendees should therefore be informed that CPD points cannot be claimed retrospectively.
