The RCHM New Practitioner Scheme: 
Continued Support After Graduation

At the RCHM, we know that the years immediately after graduation can
be the hardest as you set up your practice. For this reason, the RCHM
runs a scheme to support new practitioners by connecting you up with experienced practitioners in the membership to give you advice and help you find your feet. They will
help you with everything from difficult cases to the practical aspects of running a Chinese Herbal Medicine business.

Lifelong support in practice

The practice of Chinese herbal medicine requires a lot of support. The RCHM keeps its members and their patients safe by keeping you up to date with legal requirements, supporting  you with CPD, providing you with safety information from the latest research and priorities communicated from government agencies and by auditing herbal suppliers to give you a reliable source of herbal medicines. In addition, you join a wonderful community of supportive practitioners who love nothing more than to help their fellow herbalists. 

The RCHM is the only organisation that does all of this vital work and we need your support! The best way you can support the future of Chinese herbal medicine in the UK is to choose a course that both supports you in practice and meets the high standard that can reassure the public. If you graduate from an EHTPA accredited course, you will be able to proudly display the RCHM logo and the EHTPA herbmark!
