LMHI - Who can be a member?
There are three classes of members in the Liga Medicorum Homoeopathica Internationalis (LMHI):
Institutional Members are National Homeopathic Organizations and Institutions. Persons whose national homeopathic organization pays collective LMHI dues are members by virtue of that assocation. These active Members are medical physicians, veterinary surgeons, dental surgeons, and pharmacists with a full degree in the respective field from a National University, Faculty, Examining Board or Licensing Authority recognized by the government of the country of their citizenship and practice. A homeopathic physician, veterinary surgeon, dental surgeon or pharmacist is a graduate, licensed practitioner who has obtained special training in homoepathy for which he possesses LMHI recognized diploma(s) and who applies the Law of Similars in his practice. These members are voting members.
Individual Full Members
Individual Full Members are persons possessing the qualifications described under Active Members above whose country does not have a national organization through which they can obtain Institutional Membership.
Any person residing in a country having neither a national organization nor a National Vice President must apply directly to the Prime General Secretary, who will request of him his references. His admission to membership is decided by two-thirds majority of the International Council.
All persons with qualifications recognized nationally, who have undertaken homeopathic training recognized by the LMHI, such as medical students, chemists and all persons, who are licensed health care providers, such as naturopaths, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, and, generally, persons and institutions who by their profession or activities can contribute to homeopathy, such as scientists, researchers, authors, research institutes, charity organizations, patient organizations may become associate members of the association (“associate members”).
