AFN is a post graduate special interest group for Gynaecology and Fertility.

The criteria for AFN membership are to assure a parity of professional qualification and of post graduate training in fertility treatment amongst our membership.

meadowProfessional Requirement:

AFN is an organisation for Traditional Acupuncturists.

Applicants should be members of either BAcC, ATCM or any governing body with membership to ETCMA. Or an equivalent professional body.

This pre-supposes a UK/European Licentiate in Acupuncture, and ensures that all members carry insurance for medical malpractice and public/products liability.

BAcC, ATCM and all ETCMA members are governed by:

  • Codes of Conduct
  • Codes of Safe Practice
  • Codes of Ethics

Prospective members must provide certification of attendance for courses specific to supporting both natural and assisted conception.
