In a nutshell: The following advantages are available to CMA registered students only:

The Prestige of Belonging to the Complementary Medical Association – recognised by the public and doctors alike as the leading organisation in the field of  ethical, professional Complementary Medicine.  

We have regular online business development MasterClasses and we are happy to give our Members guidance when faced with business development issues.  We are passionate about helping you to become as successful as you can possibly be.

As a CMA Student Member you will save hundreds of pounds on CMA President, Jayney Goddard's online Business and Practice Development MasterClasses. These include modules from the highly successful and Proven-to-Work courses:

Developing Your Professional Practice Profitably.  Help more people, doing the work you love!

Successfully Identifying Your "Perfect" Client

Developing Advertising and Promotion That Actually Works

Developing Your Sales Presence – Online

Media and PR Training

Practice Building Through Public Speaking programme

Website Building

Practice Development through Effective e-Newsletters

And more!

You Own Page on The CMA Website!  Once you qualify you'll have your very own page on this website that features your biography, your picture, the disciplines you practice, all your contact details and plenty of room for you to introduce yourself properly, to talk about how and why you practice in the way that you do - and to include real patient/client testimonials so that people can really get to know you on a personal level - this is the most effective way of developing a practice.

The CMA Referrals Scheme – The CMA is the only organisation which runs a referral scheme to help you build your practice. CMA registered members are automatically entitled to join the CMA Referrals Scheme. Your details - once you've qualified and upgraded to Full CMA "MCMA" Membership - will be accessible to every doctor and healthcare worker in the UK directly via the CMA website.

The Opportunity to Contribute to the CMA Website and e-Newsletter – tell the world about your experiences with complementary or conventional medicine or any important news that you would like to disseminate widely and rapidly. (Subject to acceptance).

Media – the opportunity to contribute to the media with articles, TV and Radio appearances. As the leading organisation within the complementary medical field the CMA is constantly asked to source contributors and experts for programmes, articles and so on.

Best Value Student Insurance – The CMA is passionate about the needs of its Student Members and has invested much time in developing industry leading solutions to meet those needs. We have combined our skills with the very best insurance professionals to ensure that our Members have access to the best policy available - at the most competetive price.  Because CMA Student Members are training at the very best colleges in the complementary medical field - they are recognised as following the very best, safest and most professional courses, which is why the insurance policies that are offered to our Student Members cost so little - compared with other similar packages. 

The CMA Website– the site that you are on right now receives over 650,000 of hits each month! That’s a phenomenal number of people who are keen to learn more about the fascinating world of complementary medicine! These visitors are also looking for practitioners so it is imperative that your details are listed on our practitioner database -once you qualify. This is a free service to CMA Members only and as a Member you automatically qualify for inclusion.

PR and Marketing – The CMA is dedicated to promoting your profession and this in turn ensures that you receive as much exposure as possible, thus helping you to build a successful practice when you graduate. 

Links to Conventional Medicine – Most doctors would love to be able to refer many of their patients to complementary medical practitioners. The problem that they have been faced with, until recently, is that they simply have not known who to refer to, given the vast differences between standards and training among people purporting to practice complementary medicine. Of course the fact that there is so little legislation in this area does not help matters. The CMA has solved the problem by ensuring that all our members are properly qualified, insured and adhere to our very stringent code of ethics and are subject to a strict disciplinary procedure. This, in turn, helps conventional doctors and other medical personnel to be able to refer their patients to CMA Members with the utmost confidence.

Parliamentary Representation – The CMA is a member of the UK’s Parliamentary Group for Alternative and Complementary Medicine. We keep you informed about what’s going on in governments in the UK, Europe and further afield in the USA and the Americas.

European and Government Legislation – The CMA is fighting for you, the student practitioner, to ensure that any proposed, unjustifiable supplement and herb bans are fought most aggressively. These are the basic tools of the complementary medical profession and it is essential that these are protected. By having you as a Member, The CMA grows ever stronger and as such we represent a cohesive and united front in the face of these threats.

The CMA Stands Alone - There is no other organisation in the complementary medical field, anywhere in the world that offers its members this vast array of tangible, high value benefits.

You are working hard to achieve your qualifications – show the world just how professional you are by becoming a Member of The Complementary Medical Association today!


 

CMA Student Membership fees are only £5.17 per month! And, that INCLUDES your PayPal fee!

What happens once you qualify?

You'll be able to upgrade your Membership and be featured as a top practitioner on this site 

As part of our extended coverage of the top “News” stories on Complementary Medicine and Natural Healthcare developments from around the world – this website has been developed to help educate consumers and practitioners - and as you can see it features breaking scientific news stories every day.

A key target for the CMA website is to attract and inform – worldwide - those consumers who are "Hyper Health Focused" - consumers who are desperate to learn more about this whole field – and to understand what works and what doesn’t – across the whole field of medicine in both Conventional and Natural Health Care – so that they can take control of their own health and make well-informed choices.

As you will see The CMA is also dedicated to supporting YOU – as a Student Member - so that you can carefully prepare to enter the profession with all the best support and opportunities.

  • As a CMA Student Member – once you qualify, your details will be highlighted when a Health Focused Consumer actively searches for a practitioner near them. They will see up to 8 of their nearest practitioners (generally – or by therapy). This search is done by Post Code/Zip Code and by Country.
  • As a CMA Student Member you will be featured regularly on The CMA website Home Page as a Top Practitioner on an ongoing basis, once you have qualified. 
  • And, if, as a CMA Student Member, you have any ‘News’ which is relevant to a wider audience of Health Focused Consumers, e.g. research you have reported on (not simply a change of practice address, etc.) we will feature it – as a News Item on the site. 
  • The CMA website ranks extremely highly among all health care sites globally as we are a bona fide news site as well as a proper Membership site - In fact, we actually add around 4 – 16 new ‘News’ stories to the site every day!  This means that The CMA site ranks very highly - and thus YOU are much more easily found by potential clients. 

As you can see The CMA website has the latest news stories from the fields of Natural Health Care updated throughout the day, each and every day of the year. If you’re interested in what Complementary Medicine and Natural Health Care can do for you – and your patients/ clients, it’s a ‘must visit’ site. Even if you don’t get to visit the site every day, you can be sure that your potential new patients/ clients will. 


 

Our monthly e-Newsletter for students and practitioners goes to around 400 health journalists and reporters worldwide, including TV/Radio presenters and production companies – as well as around 25,500 practitioners across the globe.

enewsletter header

 

This publication always includes news coverage of the latest research from around the world on effective, proven therapies – and all this ‘latest news’ is backed by up-to-the-minute research data from the world’s leading universities.

As this monthly e-Newsletter starts to attract more Health Focused Consumers - we will start featuring “Top Practitioners” in this online publication as well.

It also gives Members the option to have their articles printed in it (subject to acceptance). 

We also feature a helpful list of our CMA Approved Suppliers in each edition - with links to their pages on The CMA site - so that they can be easily found.  These are companies that offer the very best products and services within our profession and who have satisfied The CMA as to their deep committment to excellence.

No Deaths from Supplements. No Deaths from Minerals or Amino Acids. No Deaths from Homeopathics or Herbs

The truth about the Paleo Diet: The Big Picture Dr Frank Sabatino DC PhD

Does kindness assist longevity? Read this story and make up your mind. Although not strictly 'complementary medicine' as such, we can't help feeling that perhaps this man's kind and caring disposition may in some way contribute to his longevity. And there's good evidence to support the concept that love, kindness and compassion are intrinsically linked to better health and longevity. To read more about this take a look here. Alfred ‘Alfie’ Date learned to knit in the 1930s so that he could make a jumper for his new nephew. Flash forward over 80 years, and Alfie’s knitting skills are allowing him to help his country’s wildlife. Amazingly enough, at 109 years old, Alfie is worried about having idle hands, so he is putting his knitting needles to work and creating the most adorable sweaters for penguins!
