Who is Homeopathy training for & what to expect

Whether you are a dentist, dental technician, nurse, vet, pharmacist, GP, hospital doctor or another type of qualified healthcare professional, homeopathy can benefit the care that you offer.

Homeopathy training helps you to widen the clinical options that you can offer to your clients, and can transform your relationship with other healthcare professions. NCIM has a core team of enthusiastic teachers who teach regionally, nationally and internationally.

NCIM delivers both basic and advanced online and face-to-face training courses in homeopathy.

Training is both practice and case-based with a focus on observation and holistic consulting skills. These skills are used to gain a greater understanding of the complexity of disease, to learn to match homeopathic medicines to the pattern of symptoms, and to increase the therapeutic options for treating long-term conditions to support individual health and wellbeing.

We offer a number of teaching days a year to inspire and guide you, which can be curated and tailored to your level of knowledge and confidence.

Working in between the modules will be essential through our online Learning Management System (LMS).

There are several levels of qualification, suitable for different professions. For guidance that is specific to you, please email education@ncim.org.uk

Basic: PHCE (1 year foundation)

Foundation training is appropriate for healthcare practitioners who want to understand the basic principles of homeopathy. The course is organised in modules over a few study days and sets out to answer questions such as; What is homeopathic medicine? What makes homeopathy a holistic approach? How can viewing health and illness within a complex system enhance our relationship with clients?

The Primary Health Care Examination (PHCE) is a one-year course that allows you to develops your skills in holistic consulting and understand how to recommend simple remedies.

The PHCE will cover a syllabus of fifty medicines that can be incorporated into day-to-day practice and you will learn about clinical applications and key characteristics of these medicines.

You will have seven face-to-face teaching days and as there is far too much material to cover it all in class time you will do the majority of your learning in your own time under our guidance. We do send you written teaching materials and course hand outs.

Successful candidates are then eligible to become Licensed Associates of the Faculty and the exam prepares for entry into a more expansive programme of study at intermediate level, which in turn eventually leads to preparation for the Diploma & MFHom examinations for those who wish to use homeopathy as a specialist skill.

All students are strongly encouraged to sit the PHCE which is considered to be an essential component of their training in homeopathic medicine. Success in the examination marks achievement of basic level skills within clearly defined standards of safety, quality of practice and professional competence.

Successful candidates may apply to the Faculty to become elected as a Licenced Associate and may use the initials LFHom, followed by a suffix denoting their profession.

PHCE Online: You can also undertake the PHCE course online at times that suit you. There is an option for face-to-face teaching during the academic year where you can gain clinical experience and be part of a wider homeopathic community.

Advanced: MFHom (3 years)

For many it is more challenging to incorporate a more thorough homeopathic assessment into every day practice but much of homeopathy’s success is matching the medicine accurately to the individual and we would like you to see the best of homeopathy and become more confident as the years progress.

Years 2 and 3 (after PHCE Year 1) provide teaching which will lead students towards the MFHom examinations. We will work with the syllabus for the MFHom but also want to deepen your awareness and understanding of the art of medicine, finding what is ‘strange, rare and peculiar’ in each patient’s story, and acquiring skills in computerised software programmes which will help with matching the remedy to the individual.

Each year you will have seven face-to-face teaching days, plus two clinical days which include two video clinics and an opportunity to sit in two clinics at NCIM with a medical homeopath.

Year 4 helps prepare students for the MFHom qualification and also provides continuing education and support for newly qualified MFHoms.

MFHom training expands substantially on the introductory training and prepares doctors, nurses, vets, dentists, podiatrists and pharmacists for the Membership Examination.

The Faculty of Homeopathy has now moved to Course Based Assessment (CBA), therefore lessening the burden of a detailed examination. The examination at the end of training will be brief but very relevant to showcase the knowledge and skills you will have acquired.

Further information about MFHom is available via the Faculty of Homeopathy.
