Homeopathy in Slovenia | Cam-Regulation

Homeopathy in Slovenia

Homeopathy is listed as a CAM system in the CAM act(§4) (259). Homeopathy shall only be practised by those who have a diploma from a medical faculty, knowledge of homeopathy and a valid licence (259).

In June 2008 the Medical Chamber of Slovenia introduced an article in the Medical Doctors Service Act (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, No. 58/2008) to strictly prohibit medical doctors from practising homeopathy (28).

As we understand, it is the intention of the Slovene Medical Chamber to take the licence to practise away from those who practise homeopathy (260, 261). If implemented, the Medical Chamber may never issue a first licence or may withdraw the medical doctor´s licence either temporarily or permanently and she/he will be struck off from the Register of medical doctors (28).
