Awards

awardsThe Society annually presents awards to homeopaths and others who have made a contribution to homeopathy.

Details of our Fellowship, Honorary Fellowship and Outstanding Achievement Awards are detailed below.

Fellowship and Honorary Fellowship

The Society of Homeopaths invites registered members to propose an individual they feel may be deserving of these prestigious awards. The nominee should be someone who has shown an outstanding level of passion and commitment to homeopathy, or achievement in the profession.

To be considered for these awards, the nominee must show evidence of an outstanding and positive contribution and service to homeopathy and have strong links to The Society of Homeopaths or homeopathy, incorporating all or part of the following criteria:

  • innovative work which has been undertaken either in research (evidenced by publication) or the introduction of a new methodology, which has had a positive impact on homeopathy teaching and practice
  • an outstanding contribution over a substantial period of time to the practice, promotion or teaching of homeopathy, publicly raising the profile of homeopathy and/or significantly contributing to the development of the profession of homeopathy

The two categories are:

Fellowships – Are given to Registered members (RSHoms) who are then able to use the initials FSHom after their name until retirement or cessation of their membership. On retirement their membership status will alter accordingly and they shall then be able to use the initials FSHom (retired). Should a Registered member decide to cancel their membership for whatever reason the designation they shall be entitled to use will be FSHom (Honorary).

Honorary Fellowships – We offer Honorary Fellowships to those who have significantly contributed to the development of the profession of homeopathy who are not necessarily homeopaths and this category carries the designation FSHom (Honorary).

Outstanding achievement award

The spirit of this award is to annually recognise an outstanding one off achievement in the practice of, promotion of or generally in the field of homeopathy and is differentiated from the Honorary Fellowship award which is awarded as recognition for a body of work achieved over a career span.

Criteria for the award will be as follows.

  • This award would be open to anyone whether practitioner or member of the general public, or a particular group of people who have been involved in any activity that has raised the profile of homeopathy in a positive light.
  • This award should be in recognition of work achieved by the recipient within a 12 month to 2 year time frame of the time of nomination.
  • Receiving an outstanding achievement award for a particular project would not exclude the award of honorary fellowship at a later date.
  • As is usual with such awards, recipients may not use the award as a promotional tool or infer that it makes them a superior practitioner. Recipients will be asked to sign a Condition of Acceptance before receiving the award.
