Homeopathy Year 4
Higher Diploma (Part 2)

Part 2 of our Higher Diploma Course is for anyone interested in becoming a professional homeopath. Our highly regarded programme instills the expertise and knowledge to become a confident and successful homeopath.

 

During this course we continue to develop and consolidate all the techniques and tools learnt throughout, with an emphasis on becoming a well-rounded and competent practitioner, able to prescribe confidently and support the patient with effective case-management. Various approaches are built on and added to so you have more tools to help you analyse the case, such as group classification with the further study of the plant and animal kingdoms and a detailed look at integrating approaches to case analysis. We encourage the use of creative ideas such as these as they often tell us as much about ourselves as they do the subject being studied.

The course also includes studies on setting up in practice and the development of your practice (your business). Learn how to utilise your own unique skills, personality and aspirations in designing a sustainable practice that will nurture you as a practitioner and support your patients towards health.

Book List Four complements this course. Alongside Part 2 of the Higher Diploma Course (if you wish to certificate as with the Practitioner Advanced Diploma) you will also be required to continue with, and complete, Clinical Observation and Clinical Supervision. 

Practitioner Advanced Diploma
Clinical Observation and Clinical Supervision are the crucial aspects of the Practitioner Advanced Diploma and your development as a homeopath. Without these you may only qualify to Higher Diploma Level from your academic studies. You will not have the practical aspects of the training and will not graduate as a homeopath. Under supervision, you take 30 cases (at least ten cases with follow-ups each over a period of at least 18 months). During this time you work closely with your supervising practitioner.  You and your supervisor will undertake a thorough and progressive evaluation of your skills, an important part of which will be your own reflection of what is being learned from each case-taking and about your practice. These cases, their follow-ups and ongoing prescriptions, will be assessed regularly and then again as a complete case portfolio at the end of your study. By demonstrating professional competence and appropriate academic standards you will complete the School’s highest award the Practitioner Advanced Diploma.

Optional fifth year (1 or 2 weekends)
In addition to being an extended farewell and providing the newest insights into practice, this year can also counts towards the CPD requirement for your Society of Homeopaths application. It may also be a buffer. If you, your supervisor or the School would like more time for you to complete all course requirements including medical sciences, then your study and/or supervised practice may be extended, allowing up to a full further year to catch up before diploma and registration.

Certification: The Higher Diploma (Part 2) is awarded after successful completion of the Foundation Course the Introduction into Practice Diploma, the Higher Diploma (Part 1), A&P, P&D, Units 22-26.

For some this is a good break-off point, if you do not wish to complete the clinical training. However the Higher Diploma does not confer a license to practise.

Advanced Practitioners Diploma
The Advanced Practitioners Diploma is awarded after successfully completing all theoretical aspects of the course (The Higher Diploma Unit 1-26, A&P and P&D), the Clinical Observation and Clinical Supervision.

With the kind of learning we got here, homeopathy can be a real transformative power in patients' lives. It's been a wonderful four years - I couldn't hope for a better school to learn homeopathy in.

The School has a solid foundation in classical homeopathy, both in its philosophy and practice, yet, has the openness and creativity to explore new avenues and latest advances.
