Course mission

Not all homeopathic doctors are successful. This course focuses on the core mission of the homeopath: to heal in everyday practice. Through a series of assessed and supervised case studies and other learning experiences, it embeds and evaluates your clinical effectiveness. Step by step, we review the clinical application of the everyday skills of a successful practitioner - case taking, case analysis, repertorisation and prescribing – strengthening your understanding, confidence and competence.

Entry requirements

Diploma students should be studying for, or graduates of a nationally recognized homoeopathy qualification. Diploma students must submit a preliminary case analysis to confirm their suitability to benefit from the course, and ability to practice safely. Students should be appropriately insured for supervised homeopathic case practice.
