Dr. Mark Curtis initially graduated as a veterinarian from the University of Sydney in 1993 with First Class Honours and the University Medal. He then worked as an equine vet for 8 years (becoming a member of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists in Equine Medicine in 1999) before being exposed to equine acupunture/chiropractic work in Germany in 2002. Mark also studied veterinary homotoxicology in Germany.
In 2003 he spent time studying advanced veterinary acupuncture in Norway/France and completed the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society course in 2004. He also completed a Graduate Diploma of Animal Chiropractic at RMIT in 2007.
Mark, a talented Veterinary Chiropractor with a busy practice, teaches the veterinary aspects of the course as they relate to hoof care. Mark teaches the modules on lameness and how hoof issues affect the entire musculo-skeletal system of the horse. His chiropractic expertise has allowed him a greater understanding of the secondary issues that stem from poor hoof balance and he is keen to share this with the students.
