NIMH Accreditation

Accredited courses

The National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) sets high standards for entry to the profession. In 1996 the NIMH established an Accreditation Board to assure and maintain those high standards through independent assessment of courses leading to NIMH membership. The NIMH Accreditation Board has accredited courses since that time.

Students graduating from an accredited BSc or PGDip/MScHerbal Medicine course are eligible to apply for membership of NIMH. The NIMH  accepts applications from graduates of those courses in western herbal medicine that were accredited by the EHTPA during the time in which the NIMH was a member of the EHTPA and which continue to be accredited by the EHTPA.

NIMH has developed a procedure to consider applicants who have not graduated from an accredited course. If you would like to be considered for membership, you are invited to write to NIMH Individual Accreditation Board outlining your background and qualifications. For information please contact the NIMH office  info@nimh.org.uk

The following BSc Herbal Medicine and PGDip/MSc courses  are accredited. Graduates of these courses are eligible to apply for NIMH membership.
