About AIH

About the American Institute of Homeopathy


Established in 1844, the American Institute of Homeopathy (AIH) is the oldest national medical association in the United States. Our membership is open to licensed physicians (medical, osteopathic, and naturopathic), dentists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who have integrated homeopathic medicine into their practice. See Membership for information about Membership Benefits, Standards of Practice, ByLaws and an Application.

Our Mission


Our mission is to promote the science and art of homeopathic medicine, to safeguard the interests of the homeopathic medical profession, to improve the standards of homeopathic medical education, to educate the medical and scientific communities about the scientific basis for homeopathic medicine, and to increase public knowledge and acceptance of homeopathy as a medical specialty.

Our Specialty Certification


The American Board of Homeotherapeutics, a legally separate entity, is the certifying board for medically-licensed homeopathic physicians. See Certification for further information about the certification requirements and a list of certified homeopathic physicians.

Our Journal


We publish our peer-reviewed American Journal of Homeopathic Medicine (formerly known as the Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy) on a quarterly basis. Our Journal, which is available in print and online versions, contains original research articles, cured cases, history, philosophy, book and seminar reviews as well as other articles of interest.
