Some of the Membership Benefits

Membership of the AHA either as a Student, General member or Professional member provides you with a range of valuable benefits to assist you in your professional development.

Core benefits:

The AHA is Australia’s largest homœopathic association giving members access to our sector’s most up-to-date information, networking opportunities, professional development tools, and many other exclusive benefits.

Professional development and CPD:

The AHA hosts seminars and professional webinars to keep members at the cutting edge of modern homœopathy and to enhance confidence as a practitioner and business owner. These hosted events focus on a variety of areas including:

- clinical practice

- homœopathic theory (materia medica, case management, etc)

- government regulations applicable to practice

- establishing and growing your practice

These hosted events provide CPD opportunities for members to meet their registration requirements.

Research bursary:

Once a year the AHA offers a grant to a Professional or Student member who embarks on a homœopathy-related research project, which has ethics approval from their tertiary institution. The grant includes a cash amount as well as the facility to advertise free of charge in the AHA newsletter to solicit assistance for their project.

Publications:

An important part of an effective, transparent and supportive association involves regularly communicating with members. The AHA does this through several publications including:

  • Similia: The Australian Journal of Homœopathic Medicine (biannual)

  • The AHA Newsletter (quarterly)

  • AHA Bulletins (as required)

Together these publications provide members with access to material ranging from academic articles to everyday news. Members can also contribute to AHA publications to share knowledge and experience.

Free advertising:

AHA members have access to free advertising of small classified ads (up to 4 lines) in the quarterly newsletter and on the website notice board.

Community:

Being a member of the AHA will directly connect you into the largest professional community of homœopaths in Australia. This will provide you with the combined resources, experience and support of our extensive practitioner network. The Member’s Chat Room is an informal meeting place where you can share challenges, successes or just connect with other members.

Supporting the profession:

As a member of the AHA your financial and professional contributions directly help the homœopathic profession to grow in Australia. The AHA is continuously engaged in advocating for the profession by responding to inquiries by government departments and the media and adding its voice for homœopathy to influence health policy in Australia. At a global level, due to the AHA’s international connections, local growth feeds into the global promotion of homœopathy.
