Professional Homeopathic Practitioner
The industry tells us that a self-employed certified, professional homeopathic practitioner in the USA can earn an average of $70,000 per year. A well-managed homeopathic practice can pay off its start up costs in two years. The practitioner enjoys the tangible benefits of being their own boss and setting their own hours, along with the personal and professional satisfaction of bringing safe, gentle and effective relief to clients with a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions.
Becoming a certified professional homeopathic practitioner is now within your reach! Achievable pre-requisites allow you to enter the program and BIH’s proven distance-learning format allows you to fit your studies into your schedule in the comfort of your own home! This is your opportunity to join the hundreds of British Institute graduates practicing homeopathy professionally all over the world.
The British Institute of Homeopathy International is excited to now offer a complete Masters-level professional program in classical homeopathy.
The Practitioner Program includes all of the courses and Clinical Training you will need to qualify for the CHC certification examination in North America. Students outside the USA should call the office to discuss certification requirements for your country and find out exactly how BIH can help you meet or exceed them.
The current requirements for certification as a classical homeopath in North America are 500 study hours of homeopathic education and 500 hours of Clinical Training, consisting of 250 hours in observation and 250 hours of case-taking, repertorization and case management.
The Professional Practitioner Program consists of the following courses to satisfy those requirements:
Foundations of Hahnemannian Homeopathy: 200 study hours
Homeopathy in Practice (Advanced Case Taking & Repertorization): 100 study hours
plus How to Run a Homeopathic Practice
Advanced Studies in Homeopathy: 250 study hours (including thesis)
Clinical Training: Six (6) weekends per year, approximately 100 observation hours per year. Additional observation hours and supervised case taking hours can be earned in Clinic through supervised case write ups and interactive case taking. Participation in multiple years of Clinical Training is generally required to meet all observation and case taking hour requirements. Students may participate in our Clinical Training seminars either by attending live in our NJ Office or via real-time, interactive webinar broadcast from anywhere in the world.
The certifying body also requires 10 case submissions supervised by a CHC certified homeopath. All of these requirements can be obtained through BIH Clinical Training and the Practitioner Program.
Ideal for those students with a medical background, the program assumes prior study in the Human Sciences: Anatomy & Physiology and Pathology. Some pharmacology is also helpful, though not required. Proof of prior study in A&P and Pathology should be submitted for inclusion in your student file. Students without prior study in those areas may include those courses as a supplement to the material in the Practitioner Program. The program also includes a business course in How to Run a Homeopathic Practice. Those students who have been running their own medical practices for some time may contact the office to have their program adjusted accordingly.
Please note that all students aspiring to become certified professional homeopaths are required to complete 500 hours of homeopathic education and 500 Clinical Training hours regardless of their medical background.
The Practitioner Program is a three-year program when studying at a full-time student pace. Studies on a part-time pace are available. Enrolling in the Practitioner Program as a whole rather than completing the same courses on an a-la-carte basis will potentially save you hundreds of dollars in registration and administrative fees.
