The American Herbalists Guild is the only professional organization for Wikipedia:herbalists of all traditions in the United States. The Guild was founded in 1989 as a non-profit. It is the only peer-review organization in the United States for professional herbalists specializing in the medicinal use of Wikipedia:plants. AHG's membership consists of professional members who must meet conditions for certification, general members (including students), and benefactors. They publish the Journal of the American Herbalists Guild (Founding and Executive Editor Aviva Romm, MD, midwife, Herbalist; Managing Editor Tracy Romm, EdD) and hold annual conferences at which research is presented. The professional title granted after education, reviewed clinical experience and review by a multidisciplinary admissions board is Registered Herbalist (AHG).
A major goal of the American Herbalists Guild is to establish standards for herbal training. An approved study program has 200 hours of Wikipedia:anatomy, Wikipedia:physiology and human sciences, 60 hours of Wikipedia:botany and plant identification, 400 hours of herbal Wikipedia:materia medica and therapeutic herbalism, 80 hours of Wikipedia:pharmacognosy, Wikipedia:pharmacology and dispensing, 400 hours of clinical skills, 20 hours of practice management/ethics, and 40 hours of history of herbal medicine and research skills. Professional members can achieve certification through apprenticeship or other methods providing they meet appropriate standards.
