The benefits of becoming an ANTA member

As someone studying (or looking to study) an ANTA-recognised natural therapy, becoming an ANTA member has a number of invaluable benefits that can help your future career, including:

Free access to world-class scientific resources IMgateway and eMIMS

IMgateway is a collection of over 700 evidence-based journals and 6,000 scientific monographs based on complementary medicine, written by thousands of practitioners covering a range of conditions, herbs, supplements, and drugs.

eMIMS is a database that contains information on natural therapies products, contraindications with products and clinical resource indexes.

ANTA members have free access to these outstanding complementary medicine resources, which as a student, will provide you with invaluable research material for your studies.

The chance to win a student bursary award

At ANTA, we believe that money shouldn’t be a roadblock for students who want to pursue fruitful careers in natural therapy. So every year we give away $12,000 in bursary awards to our student members, to help them maximise their training opportunities, and achieve their career goals.

Students who receive an award will also receive 12 months complimentary practitioner membership upon completion of their course.

Access to ANTA’s quarterly journal—The Natural Therapist

The Natural Therapist is the official journal of the Australian Natural Therapists Association—a high-quality journal that provides peer-reviewed, evidence-based information on different complementary and natural therapies. Each quarterly issue includes a selection of natural therapy articles written by experts, from a range of modalities including acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, naturopathy and more.

Free Continuing Professional Education (CPE) seminars and webinars

Membership of an association that supports statutory registration

To be legitimate and trustworthy, natural therapies must be included in the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS), and to help achieve this aim, ANTA is involved in extensive, ongoing government lobbying. By becoming a student member, you’ll be helping to support our association in this endeavour and the future of our industry.
