The Professional Master Course

  • The Professional Master Course is divided into Five Learning Modules with Intermodular Webinars and Mentored Case Rounds between each module.
  • The PIVH utilizes an interactive classroom teaching style with lecture, discussion, and casework; utilized to facilitate different student’s learning styles.
  • Problem-based learning case study application is used throughout every module, bringing the theoretical to the practical, thereby engaging students to build the foundations for homeopathic clinical practice.
  • There is homework study throughout the course year with a final exam to be completed electronically after completion of the final Learning Module.
  • Students will receive a comprehensive electronic workbook (if printed will fill a 4″ binder) with detailed handouts inclusive of all lecture notes, additional reference materials, class resources, etc.

The Course Length

  • Course length is designed to allow both an immersive study experience and a work-life-study balance.
  • Students having the opportunity to practice their own clinical case work with dedicated mentoring is vital to success.
  • Similar to our fourth year in veterinary school, mentored case work brings our studies to life and truly facilitates students moving through the learning stages.
  • Achieving this balance of depth and duration of study is critical to reach mastery and obtain the deeper understanding of classical homeopathy needed to tackle the complex multilayered chronic cases that we so commonly see in practice.

The Online Schedule

  • Each of the five Learning Modules are divided into two online sessions, part 1 and 2, e.g. Module 1.1, Module 1.2, Module 2.1, Module 2.2, and so forth.
  • Online modular sessions (two per Learning Module) will each comprise of three days of live online lectures, which will be recorded.
  • Schedule of the online modular sessions will be: Friday through Sunday, with virtual class beginning at 08:30 PST / 11:30 EST and ends at 15:30 PST / 18:30 EST. Each day includes 5 hours of live lectures with regular breaks (including lunch) scheduled throughout.
  • In Sum, five Learning Modules comprising of two online sessions each = 10 three-day online sessions over 15 months.
  • Learning Modules 1-5 are scheduled with ten to twelve weeks between each module to enable assimilation of coursework through homework study, clinical case work, intermodular webinars and virtual case rounds.
  • Students find this time between Learning Modules for study and clinical application of each session’s material to be essential, and as equally important to generate sustainability in work-life-study balance!

In Between Learning Modules

  • Intermodular webinars and virtual clinical case rounds:
    • Provide the opportunity to review key concepts and learning issues directly with the faculty to facilitate your advancement throughout the program.
    • Cover topics from theory, case presentations, homework review, and your own clinical case queries.
    • Offered live every 3 weeks during the program, for 1-2 hour sessions.
  • Homework Study between each session includes:
    • Reading, practical and theoretical homework, and clinical case assignments.
    • We advise that for every hour in lecture students should plan on 1-3 hours outside of class in homework study.
  • Faculty guidance provided through daily forum activity and email support.
