AMCofH at PIHMA achieves ACHENA Accreditation

PRESS RELEASE                                                                                 


The PIHMA Center for Professional Education & Development (CPED) has achieved accreditation for its homeopathic certificate program, the American Medical College of Homeopathy at PIHMA (AMCofH at PIHMA) from the Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America (ACHENA).

In 2015, PIHMA commenced a teach-out for the Homeopathic Program of the American Medical College of Homeopathy (AMCofH) after its closure and subsequently acquired the program intellectual property rights.  Former AMCofH President, Dr. Todd Rowe now oversees the nonprofit Foundation for PIHMA Research & Education, and AMCofH alumnus, Carli Auer, CCH, now serves as Director of the Homeopathic Practitioner Program at American Medical College of Homeopathy at PIHMA (AMCHofH at PIHMA). The Homeopathic Practitioner Program prepares practitioners for national certification and a fulfilling practice in homeopathic care. AMCofH at PIHMA achieved ACHENA Accreditation in December 2016.

Speaking of the program offering, PIHMA President Catherine Niemiec, JD, L.Ac. stated, “PIHMA is excited to support the Phoenix community with this training. It is a natural fit since both are energetic medicines, and we seek to offer the highest levels of training in both of these time-tested fields of traditional and integrative healthcare.”

PIHMA Center for Professional Education is a subsidiary of PIHMA College & Clinic, offering post-graduate continuing education and certificates for healthcare professionals, as well as classes for the community.

PIHMA College and Clinic (also known as Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture) was founded in 1996 and serves the community with both graduate medical education and a community clinic open to the public. PIHMA graduates enjoy flexible sole practices, work in integrative medical practices, hospitals, and medi-spa settings. With PIHMA’s alternating weekend and weekday evening schedules (and synchronous options), working adults are able to complete their education while maintaining a balanced life.
