Clinical experience forms part of the One Year Foundation Course and Four Year Professional Training.
One of the greatest strengths of the College is the range of teaching clinics on offer. Clinical training is a key focus of your education and has always been at the heart of the College’s teaching clinics.
Each clinic has its own flavour depending on location and the clinician. In our student clinics you will find the everyday and the extraordinary. Pathology ranging from serious to common, everyday ailments as well as health histories embracing all races and continents.
Experiencing the different styles of well-qualified homeopaths, you will observe patients and case-taking and contribute to remedy and dosage debates and decisions. You will learn to distinguish the expression of illness that needs treatment, and see remedy pictures lived out in people’s symptoms.
Students gain a minimum of 150 hours participating in clinics over the four years. During this time you will be encouraged to develop your insight and discernment. The homeopath will comment on your observation skills including your ability to hear the patient and read their body language and subtleties. You will develop an increasing depth in your perception of the symptom pattern needing to be cured. You will also reflect on your emerging skills and areas where you wish to develop.
