The Physical Examinations Module requires around 60 hours of study to complete the work within 2 month period, i.e. approximately two days a week, or three hours per day. It is up to you, however, to determine how long you are willing or able to commit to this study each week, and hence how long you actually take to complete the course. However, you are given twice as long enrolment period as you should need and you can always extend you study period by re-enroling. We regard this flexibility of time as very important, so that you can approach your study in the way that best suits your individual circumstances.

The CPD Module
We send you the printed course module, handouts and movie lectures that accompany the course.

Course Module
The course contains 1 unit of 40 pages. The module has a number of activity questions to complete after reading the relevant part of the course. At the end of the module there are two assignments and a video/Skype/face-to-face assessment to guide you through the most important steps you need to undertake to improve your practice. The assignment work is submitted to your tutor for observation and marking assessment feedback. The video/Skype/face-to-face assessment will be agreed with your personal tutor.

Movie lectures
A key part of your study material are the recorded lectures. The majority of these for this module are provided via You Tube links. These specially selected lectures provide a stimulating means of learning about the subject and help to bring the material to life.

What I love about homeopathy is the satisfaction of the one to one contact with the patients, and the feeling that you're really making a difference to peoples lives.
