Taking place at venues around the UK, our courses are taught by lecturers with a wealth of experience and a real passion for their subject. Teaching is friendly, informal and contains a practical content far higher than your average CPD. They are great value too!

Upcoming Courses


ABVA Foundation Acupuncture Days
16/17 March and 27/28 April 2020 (4 day course)

Location: Canine Partners
LE12 9SR

Price: Existing ABVA members £1300
Non-Members £1400

Delegates qualify for 1 year free membership on completion of the whole course (28hrs) followed by a discounted rate of £50 for the second year.

The ABVA Foundation Course is primarily a practical one for veterinary surgeons who are new to acupuncture or those who wish to refresh their knowledge. The information we give you stands firmly on a Western clinical diagnosis and an understanding of acupuncture’s neurophysiological mechanisms; but to broaden your experience we would like to introduce you to some of the historical and traditional concepts from which this ancient form of medicine evolved. This is just the beginning of this fascinating subject.
