Homeopathy Year 2
Intro Into Practice

The Introduction into Practice Diploma Course is ideal if you wish to take the Foundation studies to the next level. The course looks at some of the deeper philosophical aspects of homeopathy and further investigates case taking in preparation for practise under supervision.


During this part of the course we focus upon casework, introducing you to both the theory and practical applications of two systems for interpreting imbalance and diseases: Hahnemann’s theory of miasms and a system based upon constitutions and temperaments, the Mappa Mundi. The theory of miasms is developed in Misha Norland’s book, ‘Signatures, Miasms, AIDS’ while lectures and CD/DVD recordings extend this into the analysis of patients' cases to complement the classical methodology outlined in our Foundation Diploma Course. The distinctive approach of the School of Homeopathy is made evident through the application of the Mappa Mundi as well as the remedy signature teachings – these concepts are partly responsible for our uniqueness, alongside nurturing tutoring and academic rigour. It is often commented that many of our students find a spiritual connection to the work and to healing, and of course, we are delighted to be associated with this.

Book List Two complements this course. Alongside the Introduction into Practice Diploma Course, if you wish to go onto the Practitioner Advanced Diploma Course, you will also be required to start Alternative Training’s Pathology & Disease Diploma Course unless you already have equivalent training.

My studies were the richest and most satisfying educational experience I have had - and that's saying a lot, as I have been through university, allopathic medical school, psychiatric residency training, and Jungian analytic training.

The School navigates the deeper aspects of homeopathic philosophy and materia medica, gently reminding that there is more to homeopathy than merely matching symptoms.
