therapeutic system in Romania. Practise has been limited to medical doctors with specific
homeopathic training (106).

A specialized committee for homeopathy regulates the profession (239) and. both by law and by the medical association, homeopathy is recognized as a medical specialty (106, 239).

In medical schools or faculties of pharmacy students can take optional courses in
homeopathy (29). Postgraduate training courses in homeopathy for doctors are provided at universities and homeopathy is an official part of the Continuous Education Programme for doctors (106, 239). Homeopathic doctors’ associations require a number of obligatory CME for their members (106).
