Dr Geoffrey Douch Scholarship Fund

The Dr Geoffrey Douch Scholarship Fund is open to any doctor from all over the world in financial need who has been offered a place to study in the English Training in Anthroposophic Medicine at Emerson College. https://emerson.org.uk/course/anthroposophic-medicine/

Please see below for the terms of the award and how to apply.

Dr Geoffrey Douch 1931-2022

Dr Geoffrey Douch qualified as a doctor in 1960, and then as a homeopath 2 years later. He worked extensively as a homeopathic, anthroposophical and general physician for over 40 years, both in the NHS and in private practice.

He was a founder member of both the Anthroposophical Medical Association and the Natural Medicine Society.

His quiet manner of care, compassion, humour and commitment is widely remembered by his patients and colleagues alike.

The creation of this scholarship in his name is intended to offer current medical practitioners the opportunity to strengthen the relationship between the medical, homeopathic and anthroposophical traditions for the future.
