The Foundations, History and Theory of Classical Homeopathy
Ethics and Professional Practice
Homeopathic Case Taking
Homeopathic Case Analysis
Follow-up and Case Management
Transcripts from the educational institution(s) accompanied by school catalog/course descriptions/course outlines or syllabi are required. Certificates from individual courses/seminars are not accepted.
Both portions of clinical training must be documented. Clinical training is roughly divided into the two parts:
Part I: 250 hours of documented Clinical Observation. Clinical observation must be:
Completed as part of formal training at a school*
Documented by transcripts
Completed through a CHC Certified Supervisor
Observation log and/or letter listing the number of hours and signed by a Supervisor or Licensed Homeopath (e.g. BHMS)
Part II: 250 hours of Clinical Analysis. Clinical Analysis must be:
Completed as part of formal training at a school*
Documented by transcripts completed through a CHC Certified Supervisor Case Log, Initial Intake and Follow-Ups
Signed by Supervisor
*Clinical Experience Completed Through Own Practice
If the clinical observation and analysis hours were not met through a homeopathic school program or through supervision by a certified homeopath, or if the total hours in either Part I or Part II have not been fully met, experience from one’s own homeopathic practice may be used to meet the clinical experience requirement.
Verification of Own Practice
If no observation hours have been documented, all 500 hours of clinical experience may be met through verification of one’s own practice. Each 10-Hour Intake or Follow-Up = 2 hours. To earn credit follow the steps below to submit notes for each Intake or Follow-Up:
Can be handwritten or typed but must be scanned and submitted electronically
Must include number of pages per case
Must have client name and other identifying information redacted
Electronic files must be labeled as "Intake" or "Follow-Up"
