This Register clarifies the level of professionalism of musculoskeletal care given to animals, which enables animal owners and veterinary professionals to choose their musculoskeletal practitioner with confidence. RAMP makes no distinctions between different forms of training, but only of the standards of care given in practice.
This definitive listing will create a one-stop-shop that is quick and easy to reference. This means it can be used easily by veterinary professionals to locate a practitioner covering their area, with sound information about their credentials.
Becoming a registrant means you are a practitioner dedicated to high-quality care.
Being listed therefore ensures that your name will be confirmed when vets and animal owners search for a competent professional. This will dissolve the confusion that has developed in the marketplace, and create clear and fair grounds for informed choice.
