FIVE GROUPS of people who will BENEFIT from this course:

  1. FUTURE HOMEOPATHS: health professionals who wish to learn more about homeopathic practice before pursuing more in-depth study.
  2. ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONALS: who want to learn more about homeopathic practice to understand the type of patient who might be best suited for a referral to a homeopath. In addition, those providers who want to be more informed themselves for their patients already receiving homeopathic treatment from another practitioner.
  3. HOMEOPATHIC PATIENTS: those seeking homeopathic care who want to better understand the philosophy and practice of homeopathy, as well as what homeopathy can and cannot do in the context of clinical care.
  4. LEGISLATORS, JOURNALISTS, COMMUNITY LEADERS and others who want to learn more about homeopathy to better understand the intersection of homeopathic practice and the current model of health care.
  5. NESH ALUMNI & CURRENT STUDENTS: can use this course to help organize and clarify how you talk to your colleagues and patients about homeopathy. Or recommend this course to your patients who want to be more informed about your work with them. It may even help fill in some foundational gaps and provide additional context to your prior studies.

​​The homeopathic practice presented in this course describes the novel and cohesive approach developed at the New England School of Homeopathy by Paul Herscu ND, MPH and Amy Rothenberg ND. It is deeply rooted within scientific traditions and their years of clinical experience which integrates well with established scientific and medical understanding. While our approach to homeopathy does not remove the past, it is uniquely informed by and centered within a 21st century medical model. As a result, most clinicians, scientists, and the public at large can integrate the material presented here with prior knowledge. Completing this course is a good jumping off point to gain understanding of principles behind homeopathic theory and practice, and towards applying for the NESH homeopathic practitioner course.
