ECH accredited teaching centres

By virtue of their medical qualification, all medical doctors are entitled to practise medicine, which in principle may include homeopathy. Owing to a different definition of health, however, the therapeutic objective as well as the practical approach to illness differs widely in homeopathy as compared to conventional medicine. Homeopathy requires specific knowledge and skills.

Homeopathic doctors should be able to combine the knowledge and skills in homeopathic practice with the knowledge and skills in the practice of conventional medicine. A homeopathic doctor will, therefore, be a fully qualified medical practitioner additionally trained in homeopathy, and qualified to integrate homeopathy into patient care within the context of general medical practice, conventional specialist practice or full-time homeopathic practice.

The ECH confers accreditation to teaching centres if their teaching programme and examinations comply with the requirements as laid down in the ECH Medical Homeopathic Education Standards. The accreditation regulations can be found here. Accreditation remains valid for a period of 6 years and is renewable.

Accredited teaching centres can be found in the countries mentioned in the left column.
