Questions

  • What qualifications do I need to join the Faculty of Homeopathy?
    You must be a statutorily registered healthcare professional. If you live outside of the UK you must hold qualifications which are registrable with the relevant professional body in the UK (for example the General Medical Council for doctors). Student membership is open to undergraduates on courses leading to certain professional qualifications. For more information please visit our membership section.
  • I have a BHMS or DHMS, can I join the Faculty of Homeopathy?
    At the moment the BHMS and DHMS qualifications are not registrable with the General Medical Council (GMC) and so BHMS and DHMS qualified doctors are not eligible to join the Faculty.
  • Where can I get information about Faculty of Homeopathy exams?
    For exam dates and deadlines for applications please visit the exams section of this website or contact the Membership & Education Officer on +44 (0)20 3640 5903 or email education@facultyofhomeopathy.org Monday to Friday.
  • If I get Faculty qualifications can I practice as a homeopath?
    Associate membership is open to all statutorily registered healthcare professionals and is not a qualification. Members who have achieved a basic level of training in homeopathy hold the LFHom. In podiatry and pharmacy, more experienced homeopaths may have achieved the DFHom qualification. Holders of the MFHom and FFHom are the most experienced Faculty members who have completed an advanced level of training. Some MFHom and FFHom members are also members of the Specialist Register. Faculty qualifications are only valid if the holder of the qualification maintains their Faculty membership. For more information visit our membership section.
  • Can I do your exams without Faculty-accredited training?
    The Faculty of Homeopathy’s qualifications are for statutorily registered healthcare professionals. Faculty members integrate homeopathy with their conventional healthcare practice. If you want to practise homeopathy and you are not a statutorily registered healthcare professional contact the Society of Homeopaths or the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths.
  • Where can I go to get Faculty-accredited training?
    We advise you to complete Faculty-accredited training before attempting the exams. However, if you feel you have equivalent experience and would like to take an exam without training or apply for a qualification without examination, apply directly to the Membership & Education Officer - education@facultyofhomeopathy.org
  • Is there a bursary or funding available to help pay for my Faculty course fees?
    The Faculty has teaching taking place in Belfast, Bristol, Glasgow, Yorkshire and London in the UK, and overseas in India, Italy, Japan, and Russia. To find contact details visit our course providers section.
  • What are the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements that I need to fulfil to maintain my Faculty membership?
