School History

In 1990, the Classical Homeopathy Certificate Program was established as a branch of the Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado (USA). The original program, founded by Mark Manton and Barbara Seideneck, was approved by the State of Colorado and enrolled twenty-three students at the Denver, Colorado site. This program, one of the first modern homeopathy trainings offered in the United States, soon expanded from a one-year to three-year training.

Further development and expansion led to establishing the school as an independent institution. By September 1995 the school earned its non-profit status 501(c)(3). In 1996 the school moved to Boulder, Colorado, at the foot of the gorgeous Rocky Mountains.

The school’s Distance Education Program was established in 2002 in response to a growing demand for the availability of homeopathic education outside of Boulder, Colorado. Nationally and internationally recognized for excellence in homeopathic education, the Homeopathy School International (HSI) now offers study options to students worldwide. The school has graduated professional homeopaths since 1991.

 

As of April 2017, HSI was the first Distance Education Program to be accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America (ACHENA).

I have been a professional student my whole adult life, so I feel that I have a lot of experience with which to compare my tenure at HSI. The classes are focused, well organized and taught in a way to be intellectually rigorous and stimulating. The program makes the study of homeopathy come to life, providing an excellent foundation to become a good practitioner. I can sincerely say that the two years at HSI yielded one of the most fulfilling learning opportunities I’ve ever had.

Advisory Council

The school’s advisory council provides recommendations for the continuing improvement and enrichment of the school’s educational programs. The council meets annually and includes homeopathic practitioners, students, alumni, and community members representing alternative healing modalities.

National Affiliations

HSI supports all efforts to unify standards for homeopathic education and certification formulated by the Council for Homeopathic Certification, the International Council for Classical Homeopathy, the Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America, the North American Network of Homeopathic Educators, and the North American of Society of Homeopaths.

The Homeopathy School has given me an extraordinary homeopathic education. As a distance student, the classroom experience came to me on top-quality DVDs and I was able to learn along with my classmates. The instruction was among the finest available and the scope of the information prepared me for a successful homeopathic practice. My instructors were always available by phone or email.
