Our 3-Year Practitioner Program is an expansion of our successful original Vithoulkas E-Learning Program. It is based on the highest educational standards according to the principles of Samuel Hahnemann. The program is presented in a synchronous on-line classroom format. Students experience Prof. Vithoulkas’s lectures and observe patient intake and prescribing as if they are in his classroom. Video studies as well as live lectures and cases are presented by our North American Instructors and Faculty Members. Class discussion before, during and after each lecture presentation is encouraged and commenced in our distance learning classroom via Zoom where students can see and interact with their instructors and peers.
In May 2017, the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy’s 3-Year North American Practitioner Program began its journey towards full accreditation with ACHENA. IACH is currently undergoing the formal review process of the ACHENA Eligibility Application for Accreditation. This is a review process for schools and programs who seek accreditation through the Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America (ACHENA). ACHENA is currently reviewing IACH’s eligibility package, which was formally submitted on March 18, 2019, in order to ensure the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy’s 3-Year North American Practitioner Program meets all ACHENA Eligibility and Curriculum Standards in order to be considered for Accreditation. Prospective students can monitor our progress with ACHENA at the following link: http://achena.org/stakeholders/for-students/
