STRUCTURE

This course consists of three levels (Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced Level) corresponding to approximately 700 hours of study for each level. It is anticipated that each level will take approximately one year to complete if you establish a regular study schedule. Each course level is organized into several lessons with associated assignments. This continuous assessment of your work ensures a high degree of proficiency, as weaknesses in understanding are communicated to you quickly with helpful assistance and advice provided by your personal course tutor.

A minimum grade average of 70 per cent must be achieved at each course level to be eligible to proceed to the next level.

Lessons consist of: comprehensive study notes; diagrams and charts; cross-references to homeopathic text books; self-assessment questions; assignments.

"I honestly just love my whole learning experience at CCHM, I could not have chosen a better school. Initially, I was  intimidated about being a distant ed. student without having the ability to attend classes live. However, as a 3rd year student, I can confidently say that my education has been quite well-rounded and wholesome, yet flexible enough that I can dedicate time with my family, be a soccer mom, help my husband at work, and pursue my studies! This program has been extremely suitable for my needs, allowing me to do the work on my own time and schedule, at my leisure, without the usual pressure and deadlines.  

The Supervisors are fantastic. I am able to hand in my assignments with quick feedbacks allowing me to proceed further into the course without any delay. Any questions or concerns are answered promptly. 

The whole programme is tailored in a very systematic and simplistic approach, facilitating comprehension and analysis. Kudos to the authors of the in-house texts who have done an outstanding job with adhering to true Classical Homeopathic principles while conveying Hahnemann's message with remarkable fluency.

In second and third year, the Clinical Externship component gives us the opportunity to take on patients directly and put teachings into practice. This hands-on experience, with faculty guidance, has given me immense courage and eagerness to start my practice after graduation. 

I sincerely thank CCHM for giving me this opportunity to be a part of their student body. It has been an amazing journey, and the learning is truly invaluable. CCHM will always hold a special place in my heart."  Karina B., Bangalore, India

CLINICAL TRAINING

Clinical training is the key to a student’s future success in practice. Students in our distance education program undergo rigorous, fully supervised clinical training with both internship and externship components and leave fully prepared and confident in their case taking, analysis and prescribing skills. Part of completing your second and third year requires you to observe videos of a master homeopath taking the initial consultations of patients and their follow ups.  You will complete and write up your own analyses of these cases for submission and marking.  You will also take on a number of your own private patients under the supervision of a master homeopath. These clinical instructors are your teachers and have more than 17 years of clinical experience.

Distance Education students also have the option to join the Internship Clinic live here at CCHM, either in person, or by live webinar.  This unique opportunity can be either an addition to, or a replacement for, the Distance Education Clinical videos.   The live Internship Clinic allows you to: 

  • Sit in on an entire 8 hour day of Clinical Internship, including intimate discussion time with Dr. Joseph Kellerstien
  • Observe live, as Joe takes the initial cases of two patients per clinic day, giving you unparalleled insight into how to take an excellent case
  • Watch patient follow ups, as they return to the Teaching Clinic after having taken their prescription - see how a master homeopath navigates the essential aspects of ongoing case management
  • Ask questions, of both Dr. Kellerstein, and the internship patients
  • Earn valuable clinic hours (second-hand patient contact hours) above and beyond those offered in the Distance Ed program itself
  • Write up the clinic cases of patients you have observed live, and have your cases marked, just like our Year 2 and Year 3 In Class students do 

ADVANCED STANDING

Some students wishing to join the course have already completed significant homeopathic training elsewhere. Upon successful completion of a special assignment to determine the extent of your homeopathic knowledge, a recommendation for a suitable starting point will be made which will coincide with one of the three course levels.

ELIGIBILITY

If you're considering becoming a homeopathic practitioner, certain qualities are necessary to fulfill this ambition.
