Our Courses

Please note our courses are currently only offered in Hungarian language.

 

Foundation course

Our short Foundation course over two weekends covers basic homeopathic principles, rules and resources for acute treatment, as well as an introduction to the history of homeopathy and its scientific evidence base.  It can either serve as an introduction to the four year course or to provide basic skills for those who wish to treat minor complaints in their family safely.


4-year programme

Our four-year training programme of  is aimed at what would be expected from a BSc level homeopathy degree and successfully combines:

 

  1. the teachings of classical proving based prescribing with modern system based, synergistic and clinical approaches;
  2. our conventional medical knowledge base with holistic and energetic approaches to health;
  3. the art of healing with the scientific aspects of homeopathic medicine; and
  4. students with a medical and non-medical backround. 

 

We are the only course in Hungary to fully integrate system based methods into our core curriculum.  After having emerged as the single most important development in homeopathy during the last fifteen years, system based methods have by now achieved a level of academic refinement that allows their inclusion in undergraduate, not only postgraduate courses. 

 

These methods approach the simillimum not only using the information base of existing provings, but also from a kingdom-subkingdom perspective as well and include Jan Scholten’s group analysis of minerals (or more recently, plants) and Rajan Sankaran’s  sensation method, now both practiced widely with an expanding number of cases shared at postgraduate events worldwide. 

 

Our curriculum spans 1000 hours of classroom training and structured work plus about 500 hours of individual study.

 

  1. Medical subjects include anatomy & physiology, clinical pathology, allopathic pharmacology, basic clinical examination and advanced clinical medicine, with the emphasis of disease risk factors, pathogenesis, prognosis and red flag signs and symptoms pointing to potential serious underlying disease;
  2. Homeopathic philosophy and methods includes the detailed study of homeopathic philosophy as set out in the Organon and by classical authors, the study of important modern authors and thinking, system based methods and other approaches such as homeoprophylaxis, isopathy/tautopathy, polypharmacy and famous protocols; 
  3. Materia medica includes proving based to system based drug pictures of minerals, plants, animals, nosodes, sarcodes and imponderables;
  4. Clinical skills - students gain substantial hands-on clinical experience through a variety of practical training such as observing experienced homeopaths take cases, the discussion of own and teacher's paper cases, and finally a full 'live' clinical training with patients throughout the 3rd and 4th years of study; 
  5. Additional subjects include the history of homeopathy, communication with the patient and boundary issues, self reflection and self-development, evidence based medicine and research methods, homeopathic research to date and the application of research in modern homeopathic practice, practice building and development and ethics.

 

Medical doctors, pharmacists and those with health science degrees who study with us enjoy the appropriate exemption from medical subjects.  

 

Students with no previous medical education take part in a state recognised A&P exam for complementary therapists at the end of the second year.  In years three and four, medical studies move beyond the level of this exam to advanced clinical medicine and red flag signs & symptoms; this knowledge is then put into practice during clinical training.

 

Classroom study is organised into ten weekends between September and June, over four years. 

 

Before graduation, students prepare a final thesis on either a scientific or philosophical  subject relating to homeopathy.  Subjects to date included:

 

  1. ’Occurences of the simile principle in conventional medicine’;
  2. 'The effects of high Arsenic content of ground waters in Hungary and possible homeopathic management’;
  3. 'Literature review on the types of so-called side effects of homeopathic treatment and methods for its prevention’;
  4. 'Models of integrated clinics around the world and suggested model for an integrated clinic for those living with autism’.

 

Our partnership with CHE London and New York offer such international opportunities for our students as:

  1. visiting attendance at CHE London and New York City lectures  free of charge, or
  2. being able to  acquire a skype mentor/buddy from our partner institutions abroad.

 

Mentor training

In partnership with the Association for the Art of Homeopathic Healing, we offer a specially designed training course in mentoring skills for would-be homeopathic supervisors and mentors. This course can be taken by our own graduates as well as anyone with a qualification in classical homeopathy.
