Welcome from the Alumni Director
Hello homeopaths! My name is Carli Auer and I am the Alumni Director for the American Medical College of Homeopathy. My job is to help support a strong and positive relationship between AMCH at PIHMA and its Alumni. It is our goal to remain present and supportive to those who are on their post-graduate journey through the homeopathic community. Wherever you are on your journey after graduation, consider me a point of reference for school and community news, events, resources, continuing education, and keeping in contact with old classmates. I look forward to connecting with you! Sign up for news and events here:Sign Up Now
Alumni are a vital part of AMCH at PIHMA, providing a rich source of guidance and leadership for students and the greater community. We have several hundred graduates from our various programs, all with unique perspective and skills to offer. As an alum you will find there are many ways to remain engaged with college activities as well as opportunities to grow your own practice and skill as a homeopath. These activities may include; organizing and attending graduate-level seminars, organizing advanced study groups, mentoring current students, supervising student clinical cases, shadow supervision where students observe the alumni taking and analyzing cases, and providing general depth of perspective to students on their journey through their studies.
Conferences and post-graduate study opportunities are regularly organized, many of which meet the Council for Homeopathic Certification Continuing Education Units. See the Calendar of Events and the Council for Homeopathic Certification.
Life After Graduation
Welcome to our “Alumni Spotlight.” Ever wonder what life is like for our graduates once they leave the nest? Here you will find stories of what they are doing now!
Lecia Cornett is a nurse and US Army Veteran who became interested in homeopathy because she wanted to find a better way to help people. After years of seeing patients given drug after drug with no real improvement in their health, it was time for a change. Lecia graduated from the AMCH Homeopathic Practitioner Program in February 2015, then, like many of us do, she said “Ok self, WHAT NOW??”
As a new graduate, motivated and eager, Lecia wanted to immerse herself in homeopathy as much as possible. Lecia found the SHRI Free Clinic in Himachal Pradesh, India, headed by Spero Latchis, Dhom. During her three months at the base of the Himalayas, Lecia was able to study, observe and practice homeopathy daily, as well as work on the organic farm which Spero established out of a need for clean food in the community. There was never a shortage of patients and the diverse and uncommon symptom pictures of the people served by the clinic offered Lecia a deeper perspective and understanding of the medicine. Lecia’s most memorable experience was observing the healing process of a small boy with Spina Bifida. When he first came to the clinic at the age of 3, he was unable to walk and so fearful of strangers his mother was barely able to carry him through the door as he fought with every terrified fiber to hide from the doctors (if Baryta Carb comes to mind, you are correct!) Within 3 months the child was walking independently and marched himself straight into the office, climbed up on the stool, and carried on with the doctors like he owned the place! His name is Shroya and he reminds us of the power of homeopathy.
Thank you Lecia for sharing your experience. Let us never stop helping, healing, wandering, and leading in our
homeopathic community and in our world.
