Ideally, it is best to attend a homeopathic school or training program rather than do distance learning, but in this day and age, it is not always practical to do so. And the good news is that we are blessed to have several excellent homeopathic distance learning courses. Ultimately, if you want to leran to be a homeopath, you will need to take several courses, including:
If you are not a health or medical professional, it will also be necessary to take some basic science courses, either through one of your local colleges or through the British Institute:
We personally recommend the British Institute's basic science courses because the textbook used is written by a scientist who has an appreciation for homeopathic and natural medicine.
The Hahnemann College's course is an excellent VIDEO/DVD course, but please note that there is no tutor instruction. If you want personal contact with a homeopath and want whatever questions you think are important answered by someone knowledgeable, the Hahnemann College's course may not be for you. This set of video courses represents the first year of the Hahnemann College of Homeopathy, and if you are not familiar with this school, it is recognized as one of the best in the U.S.
We have developed our own eCourse in Homeopathic Family Medicine, and this course is directed to people who want to learn about how to use homeopathy in family medicine but may not want to be "homeopathic specialists." This eCourse is not as comprehensive as the multiple courses available through the Homeopathy School International, which offers an excellent first year course, called Homeopathy 101, and that is followed-up with Practitioner Certification Program.
Distinct from these longer courses, the "Homeopathic Family Medicine" eCourse emphasizes how to learn to use homeopathic medicines in acute care, and it provides the most systematic body of information on the clinical research that has evaluated efficacy of homeopathic medicines. This eCourse is particularly useful for health and medical professionals who may not plan to be full-time homeopaths but who want to learn how to integrate homeopathy into their practice. It is also excellent for consumers who want to improve their prescribing in treating themselves and their family and friends.
This eCourse includes our eBook as well as various audiotapes. The list of required and recommended books is provided along with the other information about this eCourse.
