There is a significant difference between the two programs with the focus of the 3-year course being to prepare a student for practice. The 3-year course is a Distance Learning Practitioner Program in real time with our online classroom operated by teachers of homeopathy at our satellite office in the United States for students in North America.
- The 2-year E-learning course is for self-study. By contrast, the 3-year Practitioner Program provides an online classroom environment where you will benefit from weekly class interaction, discussion and study with your peers as well as one on one supervision with your own clinical cases and training. In addition to the ten supervised cases, which you will take and follow for 6 months in the 2nd and 3rd academic years, the 3-year program also has a monthly student internship clinic to ensure you gain as much practical experience as possible in case taking.
- The 3-year program has nearly double the lecture content with additional modules covering Materia Medica, Levels of Health, Organon, Strategies in Prescribing, History of Homeopathy, Ethics in Homeopathic Practice and US Healthcare Law, and Business of Practice, providing a strong foundation for study and future practice.
A proactive student can potentially complete the application process in less than one month. Prospective students must complete an application, send proof of identification, furnish 2 letters of recommendation, a background check (which takes a minimum of 2-3 weeks), and have transcripts and proof of prior education submitted. (Please see more info under Admissions Process).
Once the admissions board has carefully considered each applicant’s submission, those accepted to the program are notified in July or August of the same year that matriculation is to occur.
A new student’s first tuition payment is normally due in the third week of August, and Orientation for each new class occurs on the last Saturday of every August.
Classes begin the first week of September.
Entire class schedules for each enrolled class can be found under the Course Details tab at https://vithoulkas.college/
Each Student is enrolled for 3 years. At the end of the 3-year program, students who have passed their final exams, have completed their 10 supervised cases, completed the Strategies in Prescribing II module, and Anatomy Physiology and Pathology course will receive the IACH diploma.
3. Practicing Homeopathy
There are many avenues by which a person can begin practicing homeopathy in the US. The type of education you have, where you received your education and the laws of the state in which you live are all factors that may affect your path towards practicing homeopathy.
Please note that certification is not a license to practice homeopathy. Each state regulates homeopathy and other alternative and complementary medicine disciplines differently. For more information, contact your state Attorney General’s office.
International Academy of Classical Homeopathy offers an academic Course based on the highest educational standards according to the principles of Samuel Hahnemann.
This Course offered by the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy contains all the necessary knowledge to provide a solid foundation towards becoming a good homeopath. Therefore, our Diploma certifies knowledge, but does not automatically give one the right to practice homeopathy. Students must comply with the laws and regulations of their respective state/country. As these laws vary around the world, the responsibility for that research falls on the interested student.
IACH invites students from different areas of expertise and study to join our program.
Students who have not taken Anatomy and Physiology and Pathology classes prior to taking our program need to also complete these prerequisites prior to finishing the 3-year program in order to obtain their diploma from IACH. In order to assist students in acquiring these prerequisites, we have aligned our school with another external program in order that students also receive a discounted tuition rate.
