Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America
ACHENA accreditation is a voluntary, peer-regulated process. School of Homeopathy is on step 4 of 5 of the recognitition process for accreditation with the Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America (ACHENA).
From January 2018 US and Canadian students of homeopathy that wish to be registered must attend schools/programs that have either had their curriculum approved by or are fully accredited by ACHENA. The School of Homeopathy is on Step 4 of 5. We hope to have full ACHENA accreditation by the end of the year.
The School of Homeopathy's curriculum has been approved and graduates are therefore elidable to sit The Council for Homeopathic Certification (CHC) exam which leads to being a Certified Classical Homeopath (CCH). Graduates can then also become registered membership in the North American Society of Homeopaths (NASH) which grants the RSHom(NA).
Once the School is fully accredited by ACHENA graduates will no longer have to sit the CHC exam before applying for CHC, CCH and NASH.
International School of Homeopathy graduates are also elidable to join the Society of Homeopaths in the UK which grants the RSHom (Overseas).
School of Homeopathy recognises the importance of meeting community accepted standards for educating professional homeopaths and is committed to excellence in programming and peer review as a means to evaluating our program. While School of Homeopathy cannot guarantee that the school will be recognised as eligible for accreditation, we are actively pursuing this goal and believe that our program is consistent with ACHENA standards. Updates to School of Homeopathy's status with ACHENA can be found on the ACHENA website at:
Highly qualified and fully regulated
Homeopathy is a self-regulated profession with high standards. There are several registers listing professional homeopaths and each register sets a code of ethics, standards and requirements to practice. Registered homeopaths are insured and undergo continued professional development.
