Faculty of Homeopathy
Founded in 1844 and incorporated by Act of Parliament in 1950, the Faculty of Homeopathy is one of the longest established Homeopathic organisations in the world. The Faculty has long been recognised as the preeminent membership organisation for statutorily regulated healthcare professionals who integrate Homeopathy within their practice.
Although based in the UK, the Faculty is an international and multidisciplinary organisation, embracing a wide range of healthcare professionals. Faculty members are medical professionals who are qualified and trained in both conventional medicine and Homeopathic medicine. This provides them with a unique perspective on healthcare and allows them to effectively integrate these various disciplines.
In addition to membership activities, the Faculty has an academic role, providing internationally recognised training pathways in Homeopathy for Doctors, Dentists, Pharmacists, Veterinary Surgeons and other statutorily regulated healthcare professionals. These educational standards are widely considered to be the gold standard for training worldwide.
The Faculty actively promotes Homeopathy within public, professional and political circles alike, defending the discipline and maintaining awareness of this effective and safe system of medicine. The Faculty also has a robust system of Quality Assurance in place and is a General Medical Council (GMC) “Designated Body”, offering annual Appraisals to Doctors and making recommendations about the Revalidation of Doctors to the GMC.
In partnership with Thieme Medical Publishers, the Faculty publishes the popular international research journal, “Homeopathy”, the only MEDLINE listed, peer reviewed journal solely devoted to Homeopathy.
The Faculty’s mission statement is “To promote and support the highest standards of practice, education and research in Homeopathy”. It advocates an integrative approach to healthcare and champions sustainable, holistic and lifestyle medicine. In 2019 the Faculty celebrated 175 years since its original founding, a milestone marked by the announcement of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales as Patron of the organisation.
In a similar way that Faculty members integrate various different approaches within their practice, the Faculty welcomes increased collaboration with other colleagues and disciplines within the conventional, complementary and integrative medicine communities.
