Australian Register of Homoeopaths

The Australian Register Of Homoeopaths (AROH) is the national register of accredited homoeopaths in Australia.
The Board of AROH registers homoeopaths who are qualified to government-endorsed standards. Registered homoeopaths are bound by AROH’s code of professional conduct and standards of practice.
The purpose of the Register is to protect the public by accrediting only practitioners who meet these standards.

The second professional body of importance is the Australian Homeopathic Association (AHA). If you would like to meet other homeopaths and attend seminars, webinars and conferences then this is the organisation to be a member with. The AHA keeps all members up to date with current legislations as well as all news relevant to homeopaths in Australia. Each state has a committee that meets every few weeks and each committee has a representative that sits on the National Council. This ensures continued communication and unity within the profession.

Good news is that you do not need to be AROH registered to become a member and start engaging with the profession in Australia. For all you need to know about membership with AHA and all its benefits click here.
