Original: June 2017
UPDATE: May 2019
The PIHMA Center for Professional Education & Development (CPED) has achieved accreditation for its homeopathic certificate program, the American Medical College of Homeopathy (AMCofH at PIHMA CPED) from the Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America (ACHENA).
In 2015, PIHMA Acupuncture College commenced a teach-out for the Homeopathic Programs of the American Medical College of Homeopathy (AMCofH) after its closure, and subsequently acquired the program intellectual property rights. Program creator and former AMCofH President, Dr. Todd Rowe took on a role leading the nonprofit Foundation for PIHMA Research & Education, and AMCofH alumnus, Carli Auer, CCH, took on the role of Director of the Homeopathic Practitioner Program at 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. http://www.achena.org
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.”
A New Beginning 2019
In May of 2019, PIHMA College separated the Center for Professional Education & Development (CPED) off into its own stand-alone company. This spin off included the homeopathic educational offerings and was performed to preserve the integrity and opportunities of both educational companies. As its own company, CPED shares many goals with PIHMA, including that of growth and service to Licensed Healthcare Providers.
PIHMA Center for Professional Education & Development (CPED) is a separate, stand-alone company from 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.
