Course Syllabus

Our joint roots are firmly in clinical learning: you will see different professional homoeopaths in action on different continents, and develop your case taking, analysis, prescribing and management skills with their guidance.
Our job is to produce confident, competent homoeopaths. With this in mind, we offer both real clarity on the underpinning foundations of homoeopathy and a genuine diversity of applied analysis tools, approaches and perspectives.
We aim to reflect both the motto of homoeopathy’s founder, Samuel Hahnemann - ‘Dare to be Wise’ - and the characteristics that the wise healer or physician should demonstrate: insight, awareness, knowledge and discernment.
