New England School of Homeopathy

Unprecedented Opportunity to Study Homeopathy with NESH in these Unusual Times

The New England School of Homeopathy’s 10 Weekend Develop Expertise in Homeopathy Course began in October 2020 and FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 30 YEARS, attendees have an option to take the entire course virtually. Based on public health guidelines, we plan to meet in-person when we can in Amherst, Massachusetts, but appreciate that you may prefer to take the entire class on-line.

We are still accepting applications for this course: you will be able to join the current cohort and catch up on what you missed in Weeks #1-#6 via our new NESH Course Portal.

Course meets for approximately 15 class hours every other month. SO, we hope you will feel inspired to join Drs. Herscu & Rothenberg, for this one-time virtual option many of you have been asking about for years. Contact us for course details.

Please find below our plan to move forward with this course. It outlines how the course will operate for the weekends we CAN meet in-person, as well as those when we CANNOT. Week #7 will follow SCENARIO #2 (ie. entirely virtual for everyone – schedule details found at bottom of page). For all the reasons we continue to offer in-person courses, we still encourage you to join us in Amherst whenever possible. Course schedule found here:

We are also more than happy to talk through these details with you. Contact us to schedule a time to review your options on the phone.


SCENARIO #1: In-Person Weekends

If circumstances allow us to meet in-person for any given weekend of the course, you will need to choose between one of the two options below. You will not be able to do both.

Option #1 – Join us Amherst. We WILL offer in-person weekends as scheduled IF:

• Hampshire College allows us to use their space.
• Our local and state laws permit gathering in-person.
• We have a minimum of 20 students who will attend in-person.
• Everyone attending in-person agrees to follow all public health measures.

Option #2 – For any students who choose not to attend in-person:

• We will post videos from a prior course in our NESH Student Portal which cover nearly the same topics as presented during our in-person weekend.
• These videos will be available to view on-demand for approximately 2 weeks after that weekend.
• In addition to the course videos, we will set up a 1-2 hour Live-Stream session once the viewing period closes for those not there in-person to ask questions and review the materials with Drs. Herscu & Rothenberg. These hours will be fixed, not on-demand, and based on the East Coast time zone.


SCENARIO #2: On-Line for Everyone

For any weeks we are unable to meet in-person, the class will be taught virtually for everyone. This has been the case so far for Weekends #1-6.

What that will look like is:

• Class will be a combination of Live-Stream teaching with real time chat, discussions, and integrated videos, plus scheduled on-demand videos.

• We will also utilize “breakout sessions” to replicate our in-person classroom experience and to help you get to know each other.

Class schedule: Keep these approximate times open in your calendar for any given scheduled class weekend to participate LIVE on-line (see scheduled below as an example). Course dates can be found here:

• Friday 6-9pm (East Coast time)
• Saturday and Sunday 9am – noon (East Coast time)
• Allow time during the following week to watch any scheduled on-demand videos
• Sunday morning the following weekend to wrap up and review questions from that week’s on-demand video selection.

• We will formalize and confirm the exact schedule before each weekend.

• You will be able to make up any Sessions you are unable to attend “LIVE”, on-demand during a two week viewing window.

We feel that this plan offers a solid path for us to move forward and offers you a level of reassurance through which you can negotiate your own level of comfort and still enroll in the course at this time. We will continue to seek out other means to maximize the entire course experience for everyone. We already have a Private Facebook Group set up for this class that allows for communication with other students enrolled in the course between weekends.

This 10 Weekend Course runs through April 2022; we have no way of knowing what will happen on any given weekend. Since that makes definitive planning for all of us challenging, we are committing to allow you to continue to take the course virtually even if/when it is entirely safe to meet in person again if, for you, travel to Massachusetts is still out of the question. Tuition and all other logistics remain the same.
