Anthroposophic medicine is regulated by law as a specific therapeutic system (Besondere
Therapierichtung) by the Medicines Act- Arzneimittelgesetz (AMG) and by the Code of Social Law (Sozialgesetzbuch V)(106,124,127).

The statutory regulation of anthroposophic medicine is delegated to the German medical association, and recognized as an additional qualification for medical doctors.

The medical association of anthroposophic doctors issues and recognizes diplomas and regulates the statutory, mandatory Continuous Medical Educational programme (CME) for anthroposophic doctors (106, 122).

Optional introductory courses in anthroposophic medicine are provided as part of the
medical undergraduate curriculum at some universities (106). Postgraduate training is
offered at private teaching centres (106).

Anthroposophic medicine is offered at some hospitals in Germany (106). In Germany there is a small group of anthroposophic Heilpraktikers with their own professional body (106).
