The practice of homeopathy offers a rewarding career with the opportunity to naturally and significantly improve health. The Practitioner Certificate Program prepares you for a professional homeopathic practice even without previous experience in health care. If you are already working in the health care field, the same program provides the opportunity to add to your skills and expand your practice with homeopathy. Since 1991 the education at HSI has drawn people from all walks of life and health practitioners of many healing modalities to study this fascinating health care system.
Because of Homeopathy School International, I am now managing a blossoming homeopathic practice.
HSI offers three levels of education:
HSI 101: Foundations in Homeopathy and Home Care
After completing this course you will clearly understand how the system of homeopathy works and have acquired the skills to improve the health of your family and friends. If you do decide to pursue a professional career in homeopathy, continue your studies with the professional program. HSI 101 can be taken individually and is also the first course of the Practitioner Certificate Program. The course can be completed in 3-5 months; maximum completion time is one year.

Practitioner Certificate Program:
Completion of this program will equip you with the skills to become an independent homeopathic practitioner (CHom), help to change your career or add professional homeopathic skills to your current practice. This 500-hour program offers theoretical as well as clinical training and provides the formal education required for national certification. The average completion time is between 14 and 20 months; maximum completion time is four years. Read more about the Practitioner Certificate Program.
Advanced Clinical Studies:
Supervision and clinical training provided in this program greatly benefit graduates when starting their practice in homeopathy. The program is open to anyone with 500 hours of documented homeopathic education and satisfies the clinical hour requirement for national certification (CCH).

Homeopathy – a nice fit with other healing modalities:
As a current health practitioner a certification in homeopathy can substantially enrich your practice and extend your work to a public increasingly interested in natural, holistic and life-enhancing healthcare.
I have a whole new set of powerful, yet gentle tools in my medicine bag.
I love combining homeopathy and Chinese medicine in my practice. Both of these holistic modalities look at the person on multiple levels, and both focus on working with the vital force (Qi in Chinese medicine) to bring about healing. The symptoms are viewed as signs of imbalance in the body that point to the medicine that needs to be used. I can’t imagine practicing without both of these tools. Both modalities are complete in themselves, but I have found that acupuncture and herbs help me balance and support the organs and organ systems in the body, while homeopathy excels at treating the emotional layers involved in disease.
Homeopathy has proven to work very well for acupuncturists, chiropractors, counselors, massage therapists, midwifes, nurses, nutritionists, physicians, physical therapists and psychotherapists.
Homeopathy and midwifery are a natural combination. Sometimes during labor, a woman can become stuck or have difficulty to work through an emotional blockage. She may be having unusual pain that is hindering her progress. Homeopathy can initiate a shift for her, so that she can do the work of labor and give birth to a healthy baby naturally. Homeopathy is safe, gentle, effective, and can bring a positive outcome for mother and baby.

“One of my specialties in Oriental Medicine is the treatment of children and I found that homeopathy has a wealth of remedies for acute and mental/ behavioral issues, which are affecting a growing number of children. The great advantage of homeopathy is that it works almost instantaneously for acute situations such as high fever and it’s easy for the child to take the remedy, unlike herbal medicine. My Sho-Ni-Shin practice, a hands-on technique of working with children’s meridians and acupuncture without the use of needles, is very compatible with using homeopathic remedies and can significantly speed up the recovery of a child.” – HSI Graduate: Soma Glick, D.O.M., L.Ac, CHOM

The laws governing the practice of homeopathy vary from state to state, country to country, and profession to profession. Licensing for alternative healthcare, including homeopathy is available in a few US states. The Freedom of Health Act has been established in some US states. In these states alternative healthcare providers can legally practice without a license. Successful completion of any homeopathic program does not result in professional licensure. Please check any legal issues regarding the practice of homeopathy in the states or countries of your residence.
