The highest ideal of cure is the rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health; that is the lifting and annihilation of the disease in its entire extend in the shortest, most reliable, and least disadvantageous way, according to clearly realizable principle.
––Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, Founder of Homeopathy, from “The Organon”

The first Distance Education Program to be accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America (ACHENA).
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.
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.
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.
HSI is a founding member of the Council for Homeopathy Schools and Colleges.
As of January 2018, the CHC requires all applicants for Certification to complete their homeopathic education through a fully accredited school or ACHENA approved curriculum.
This program is terrific. I’m glad I chose this school. I’ve recommended it to a lot of others who are interested in studying homeopathy.
It helped me immensely to watch everyone working on cases. I especially appreciate reviewing our own case studies.
Deeply enjoyable, highly informative with information clearly and succinctly presented. My interest was held by the pace in which the material was taught.
I have to admit that I was scared to attempt this at home, but thanks to your support, this turned out to be one of my best school experiences.
I have really enjoyed the process of case supervision and got a lot out of it! I have valued your precision, guidance and insights. I feel different today compared to two years ago. You have been a huge piece of this. Thank you for all of your care.
I feel the curriculum flows nicely. I love how detailed the handouts are and that they are in order with the videos. I find it very easy to make notes and follow along. I appreciate the real life examples and what the instructors share about their own cases.
The Homeopathy School has given me an extraordinary homeopathic education. As a distance student, the classroom experience came to me virtually 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.
Support faculty have responded to my questions quickly and returned my assignments very promptly.
The teacher is a joy to be around. The humor she brings with her in-depth knowledge is brilliant. What a joy to be instructed by her.
My teacher is wonderful and gentle with us. I feel I can easily ask her anything. I enjoy her examples of actual cases. They really paint a lasting picture and are a great learning tool for me.
The openness of the instructor demonstrating her own experience makes it all less intimidating. There is a certain “sense of wonder” to her style that is encouraging for the beginner.
Thank you for working with me from a distance. Even though I wasn’t in the classroom, I enjoyed the classroom interaction and the kindness and sensitivity of the instructors.
I will say I am totally amazed at how very complex this study is. I am impressed with the amount and presentation of the information. I believe having various teachers and speakers for seminars is an extremely valuable part of the program and it gives all of us a wider view of this field and a much deeper understanding of the art involved in homeopathy.
Awesome instructors! Dorothy Simoni is amazing. She replies and grades so fast!
I am so grateful that I have had this opportunity to learn homeopathy from these knowledgeable and good-hearted people.
I can absorb the knowledge because of how the remedies are presented and cross referenced with skits, stories, quizzes and tests combined. This gives me a strong focus for my studies.
Learned a lot in this module! There is a lot of information to absorb. Going over practice cases helped a lot.
Great! Awesome! I enjoy the clear explanations, the process, the objectivity. I enjoy most that I feel I am learning!
I love the home study format – it enables me to study at my own pace. Great materials that follow the lectures – very understandable. The instructors are very engaging and interesting!
I really like the way the lectures are presented and like the variety of teachers, each of them bringing an interesting approach.
