The Faculty of Homeopathy is delighted to announce His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales as its Patron.
Dr Gary Smyth, President of the Faculty of Homeopathy comments: ‘As the Faculty celebrates its 175th anniversary this year, it is an enormous honour for us to receive the Patronage of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and I am delighted to announce this news today. This news is also a fitting memorial to our late friend, colleague and former Faculty President, Dr Peter Fisher, who was a global champion of homeopathy. I look forward to working with members, friends and supporters of the Faculty, continuing our important work, promoting homeopathy within both public and professional circles and maintaining awareness of this system of medicine.’
About the Faculty of Homeopathy
Founded in 1844 and incorporated by the 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 pre-eminent membership organisation for statutorily regulated healthcare professionals who integrate homeopathy within their practice. The Faculty’s mission statement is: ‘to promote and support the highest standards of practice, education and research in homeopathy’.
The Faculty is an international and multidisciplinary organisation, embracing a wide range of healthcare professionals. The Faculty provides internationally recognised training pathways in homeopathy for doctors, dentists, pharmacists, veterinary surgeons, nurses and other statutorily regulated 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 and academic activities, the Faculty’s other key areas of work include promotion, quality assurance, and publication of the international research journal, Homeopathy.
