Accreditation

Conventional accreditation

International accreditation will be solicited from the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide CME for medical specialists. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), therefore its credits are recognized by the Deutsche Ärztegesellschaft. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Anthroposophic accreditation

The Clinical Foundation Course is a recognized structured training course, leading to the certificate anthroposophic medicine (GAÄD) and Medical Section at the Goetheanum. (In Germany, Anthroposophic physicians can add the "Anthroposophic Medicine (GAÄD)" certification to their title and practice address if they have in addition to their conventional medical education and training qualified in anthroposophic medicine. Requirements and training paths are described in the recognition order for anthroposophic doctors. After participation in structured training courses, mentored practice time, the presentation of three self-treated patient histories and a successful recognition conversation, the certificate "Anthroposophic Medicine GAÄD" is awarded with the International certificate of the medical section at the Goetheanum.)

Kind words from our alumnis

"I am returning to my university exam preparation with renewed strength and enthusiasm"

"Man, know thyself - this course taught me how to approach this delphic maxim in a way that involves both heart and brain."

"It was so much more than anthroposophy and medicine in theory - I could experience it, live it. It was extremely motivating for the future."

"It was very valuable to experience that there are ways of learning through which you can learn a lot and thereby be enlivened in such a way that what you learn reaches deeper layers of your being."

"There are courses that enrich the rest of your life, where you meet people with whom you feel connected and share the same enthusiasm for becoming more human and a better doctor."
