The Italian “National Federation of the Orders of Doctors and Dentists” (FNOMCeO) has
acknowledged anthroposophic treatment as a responsibility of a medical doctor or a dentist (168, 170–172).
Anthroposophic medicine is recognized through a statutory regulation by the local medical associations in Bologna, Terni and Palermo (106).
Diplomas are issued by the associations of anthroposophic doctors and recognized by the
national medical association. Anthroposophic medicine is provided in some hospitals in Italy (106).
