Homeopathic Clinical Training - Information for Students

CCHM Clinic

Our two-fold Externship and Internship Clinical Training experience at CCHM sets us apart from all other schools and has been an integral part of CCHM since our inception in 1994. This integrated approach is why our graduates are so successful in practice and has contributed greatly to our international reputation for excellence. The Clinical Training of our In Class Diploma Program gives our graduates 2 years of experience in both externship and intership training, and the hours earned exceed the requirements laid out by The College of Homeopaths of Ontario. Our externship features one-on-one training with professional homeopaths and our 2 internship lecturers have 45 years of combined experience in practice. 

Second year begins with intensive case-taking workshops developed by Dr. Joseph Kellerstein, one of the top Homeopaths in the world.  No other school offers this type of case-taking training, blended with techniques from Neurolinguistic Programming and Clean Language which allows you and your patients to delve more deeply into the understanding of their experiences. Throughout our clinical training, you see consistent positive patient outcomes and receive coaching on the recognition of characteristic symptoms in a case, the translation of patient language into homeopathic language, and case management.  You actively follow patient cases through a series of appointments, allowing you to see results and ongoing case management. The benefit of this kind of clinical training is one of the most important aspects to CCHM’s program, it is what truly allows CCHM graduates to go out into the world and be able to reproduce what they are learning in school, as what they are learning is based on the sound scientific principles of Hahnemannian homeopathy.  This translates into being able to help people, and when you help people they come back and they send referrals – and this is what translates into establishing a successful practice.


Externship Homeopathic Clinical Training - Years 2 and 3 (EXT200 and EXT300)

Homeopathy is an art and science of practice, as well as study.  For this reason, it is of the utmost importance to gain hands-on experience as part of your homeopathic training. This is the purpose of the Externship portion of CCHM's Clinical Training, when you take on your own patients, and begin to practice homeopathy with one-on-one supervision from a professional homeopath. Our Clinical Training model offers a great deal of flexibility so that you can begin to build your future homeopathic practice right in your own area. You are also welcome to join a roster for patient referrals, should you wish to receive patients through CCHM. Upon graduation, the patients you have treated form the basis of your professional practice.

Through CCHM's Externship Training, you will learn:

  • To develop a professional, therapeutic relationship with patients
  • To develop thorough case-taking skills
  • To use various approaches to case analysis
  • Identification of potential obstacles to cure, exciting and maintaining causes of disease
  • To demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the process of repertorization

Internship Homeopathic Clinical Training - Years 2 and 3 (INT200 and INT300)

We also feel it is exceedingly important for students to be able to observe cases being taken live by master homeopaths, to be able to ask questions, have discussions and have the chance to follow those cases closely in order to gain the deepest insight into long-term case management. Students gain this opportunity in the Internship portion of the CCHM Clinical Training.  We are so proud to have had a successful Teaching Clinic, open to the public, for over 20 years. We offer excellence in homeopathic training to students of homeopathy as well as the best available homeopathic patient care.

In the Teaching Clinic, during years 2 and 3 of the Diploma Program, students shadow master homeopaths with a combined experience of over 45 years. Clinic days offer you the opportunity to see firsthand, how experts deal with the challenges and successes of clinical practice. Dr Joe Kellerstein, and Monica Frohmann provide in depth guidance and discussion about homeopathic case taking and case management in an intimate setting, while live patients receive the considerate and individualized care that homeopathic treatment is known for. CCHM holds the highest standards of clinical training for our students and our faculty and staff are second to none.  By attending our Teaching Clinic, you have the opportunity to shadow Master homeopaths in a thought-provoking, inspiring and nurturing environment.
