Read what NESH alum have said about this course

We’ve heard from many of you in British Columbia and northern Washington expressing desire to do a full course of study with the New England School of Homeopathy closer to home. As such we are offering a parallel course in Vancouver, in conjunction with the 8 Weekend Develop Expertise in Homeopathy Course in Portland, Oregon beginning January 2018.

Please spread the word and share this information with colleagues, friends, study/social media groups, organizations, etc. interested in homeopathy in the BC/Vancouver area. If you have any additional ideas of where we might consider promoting this course, please let us know. Share on Facebook!

The course tuition, student/faculty scholarships, application process, course content, etc. will be exactly the same as if you were taking it in Portland. Ideally the weekends in Vancouver will fall either the weekend before or after the scheduled Portland classes, but not all the dates have been determined at this time. Details will be posted on this page as they are available.

The class is held for three days (Friday-Sunday), 8 times over 17 months. We meet from 6-9pm on Friday evening, and from 9am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday on the campus of the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine (BINM) in Vancouver, Canada. Participants are given reading and homework assignments between sessions and are expected to come to class prepared. All students receive the Herscu Letter, which is a twice a month email lecture and problem-based learning exercise which is also required reading. These assignments underscore and reinforce classroom lecture material.

Please contact us to receive tuition details and an application, as well as information if you are interested in our 8 Weekend Course in Portland, Oregon.

For A Sneak Preview… Join Drs. Amy Rothenberg & Paul Herscu for a FREE WEBINAR: Holism At The Heart Of Homeopathy, A Case Illustration. In this one hour webinar, they present an overview of their approach to homeopathic case taking and analysis using Cycles & Segments and illustrate using a case example. A mini lecture on the materia medica of Lac caninum also included! VIEW NOW!

This class is designed for experienced homeopaths as well as beginners. It is open to medical, naturopathic, chiropractic, and osteopathic physicians, acupuncturists, nurses, therapists, veterinarians, all of medical school students, and serious lay people interested in the practice of classical homeopathy. We will be teaching all of the basics from philosophy and case-taking to materia medica, repertory, case analysis and long-term follow-up care. And then proceed quickly to more advanced concepts which help translate the elegant philosophy of homeopathy into a successful and enjoyable practice. This method also assists practitioners in evaluating any other therapeutics in a logical and systematic way  to gauge the direction of cure.

The New England School of Homeopathy is the longest continuous training program of classical homeopathy in the US and emphasizes the Herscu method of Cycles and Segments, which informs all aspects of practice. Cycles and Segments is a tool which allows us to help our patients more efficiently and with better results; it enables us to focus case-taking and offers a practical way of organizing and analyzing information gathered. This approach also allows for the satisfying study of materia medica  without the cumbersome memorization of long lists of individual symptoms.

Paul Herscu ND, MPH and Amy Rothenberg ND, well-known authors, lecturers and original thinkers in this field, are both 1986 graduates of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine and have taught the art and science of homeopathy to thousand’s of practitioners in the US & abroad for going on 30 years.

Our goal is to create a supportive learning environment where deep understanding is attained in a culture of respect, questioning and debate such that when the class is completed, these relationships add to the overall health of the homeopathic and naturopathic communities.

It is also our goal that every graduate of our program go on to enjoy a successful and satisfying practice of homeopathy in whatever context it might be used. With more and more Americans looking for complementary and alternative medicine solutions for their chronic health care problems, patients are searching for qualified homeopathic physicians and practitioners for help.

A welcome packet with class dates, information on travel and lodging and a pre-course reading list will be sent to you upon acceptance to the course.

For a succinct introduction to the Cycles and Segment approach, read Dr. Herscu’s Stramonium with an Introduction to Analysis through Cycles and Segments. Hundreds of homeopaths are applying this method to practice with rewarding results. It helps to make homeopathic practice less overwhelming and more enjoyable. To read up on cases treated in this fashion you can see either of the two issues of The New England Journal of Homeopathy (Volume 8, #s 1 & 2). The cases in these two volumes reflect and illustrate this approach.

We look forward to learning with you and helping you further your understanding of, and commitment to, homeopathy. Please contact us for more information.


For the first time, Drs. Paul Herscu and Amy Rothenberg will offer our 8 Weekend Develop Expertise in Homeopathy Course in Vancouver, BC. They are looking forward to an excuse to visit this robust and ethnically diverse city every other month beginning January 2018.

Known for its amazing scenery, Vancouver is a city which certainly takes advantage of its great location. It is sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and the Coastal Mountain range, giving the city a stunning backdrop. While just minutes north of Downtown Vancouver, the North Shore Mountain range enjoys ski resorts and spectacular views back towards the city and beyond. No wonder it is repeatedly voted one of the best cities in the world to live!
