Vithoulkas Comprehensive Program in Classical Homeopathy
The Vithoulkas Program meets one evening per week over a 2 year period and is 386 hours of classical homeopathic training including supervised clinical training.

Due to the unique way that the presentation of the course has been captured, you experience the teaching as if Prof. Vithoulkas is in the room and you are in the class, via his lectures and video case studies. The teacher will answer any questions or issues that arise and will facilitate discussion and will supervise students’ clinical studies.
