The AMA provides a professional membership body for Doctors and with (or training to work with) Anthroposophic Medicine in the UK. The AMA sponsored the creation of this website.
The Anthroposophic Medical Association (AMA) is open to all doctors and medical students who have a positive interest in anthroposophic medicine and is considering opening up membership to other professional membership groups.
It is the professional body of the doctors practising anthroposophic medicine in the United Kingdom and is involved in education, research and medicines legislation. It is affiliated to the I.V.A.A. (International Federation of Anthroposophic Medical Associations). It supports the work of the School of Spiritual Science, and relates particularly to its Medical Section. This has its centre at the Goetheanum, Dornach, Switzerland and has members working throughout the world. It’s criteria for the qualification of Anthroposophic Doctor are supported by the AMA.
Through organising regular meetings and conferences, the AMA provides opportunities for colleagues to meet and study together. Members receive regular British and international newsletters, as well as other occasional mailings. The AMA also supports the English Training in Anthroposophic Medicine.
The AMA aims to support research undertaken by its members related to anthroposophic medicine and its therapies, and it engages in the work concerning medicines legislation as the professional body representing the prescribers’ interests. In this it works closely together with Weleda (UK) Ltd., the pharmaceutical company which manufactures and imports anthroposophic medicines in this country, and internationally in the IVAA.
There are currently four categories of AMA membership. The details are currently under review. and we plan to open up membership to nurses and pharmacists in the near future.
We ask AMA members to set up recurring online payment or a standing order so that we don't need to chase up payment every year and to keep you in control of your payments.
We offer student and introductory membership at a reduced rate of £25 and £50 respectively.
The annual fee for full and associate membership is £200/ year. Of this we pay contributions to other organisations who work on our behalf
But there is no obligation for you to pay £200/year, if you cannot or don’t want to pay that amount then you are free to pay according to your means as you see fit. You can pay annually, half yearly or quarterly but best not to pay monthly because there is a charge from the bank for every payment.
When you apply for AMA membership, you have the option to pay online or receive an email with details of how to pay your membership fees by standing order.
