At the turn of the century there were 22 homeopathic medical schools in the U.S. Although none of these schools presently exist, a growing number of schools and training programs have begun in recent years and many more are expected in the years ahead.
We encourage you to visit our website at Homeopathic Educational Services (http://www.homeopathic.com/). In addition to accessing over 100 free articles on homeopathy, we have a very comprehensive online catalogue of hundreds of homeopathic books, tapes, medicines, medicine kits, software, and distance learning courses (we serve people ALL over the world with these products and services).
We highly recommend that people first learn how to use a homeopathic medicine kit, and there’s a new e-course that was developed just for this goal. For details, go to: http://www.HomeopathicFamilyMedicine.com — This e-course is a mixture of short videos and a detailed ebook that teach you how to use 50 to 100 (!) homeopathic medicines…plus the ebook provides reference to and description of 300+ clinical studies published in peer-review medical journals (in user-friendly ways!).
Five naturopathic medical schools have good programs in homeopathy. In order to get into them, you must have at least two years of chemistry, a year of biology, and some other pre- medical coursework. These schools offer a four-year program.
