Supporting your Professional Development
CPD aims to further the practitioner’s knowledge in his/her field so that he/she remains up to date with current research in various areas of Herbal Medicine, Nutrition and Social and Research issues. CPD has until recently been undertaken on a voluntary basis. The IIMH has reviewed this and concluded that it is in the interest of members to have a more formal compulsory CPD process.
We are strongly encouraging our members to update their knowledge for their own professional use, which is a natural part of being a Medical Herbalist.
It is expected that, on average, each member will complete 100 hours of continuing professional development activity (CPD) per year spread across internal (maintenance of knowledge and skills), external (practice evaluation and development), personal learning and research/teaching categories.
