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.
I really like the way the lectures are presented and like the variety of teachers, each of them bringing an interesting approach.
I would really like to thank you for all the nice and encouraging feed back on my work and for returning the assignments so quickly. I am so glad I chose this program. I really enjoy it and will recommend it to anyone who is interested in Homeopathy. Great instructors and material that is interesting and challenging!
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!
So far I am enjoying the program and I feel that I am learning a lot. I have two Bachelor degrees, a Masters degree and much other education “under my belt” and this program in Homeopathy, in general, is the most enjoyable and rewarding learning experience I have ever had. Thanks!
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.
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.
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.
It helped me immensely to watch everyone working on cases. I especially appreciate reviewing our own case studies.
Learned a lot in this module! There is a lot of information to absorb. Going over practice cases helped a lot.
Deeply enjoyable, highly informative with information clearly and succinctly presented. My interest was held by the pace in which the material was taught.
Awesome instructors! Dorothy Simoni is amazing. She replies and grades so fast!
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.
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.
I congratulate the program and the instructors for the organization of the course and the academic level offered. Each course is well selected and properly structured according to level of learning achieved. I want to highlight my personal case supervisor who has been very helpful with her comments, as well as my support faculty with her help in the different assignments. Thank you! And thank you to each of my teachers for transmitting the love for what they do and for teaching me how to heal in a kind and effective way. The program exceeded my expectations!
The instructor’s love for homeopathy and her commitment to bringing it into the world is apparent. She conveys concepts clearly and ties in examples of interesting cases. She makes potentially difficult concepts easy to understand.
You were instrumental in showing me a whole new way to view healing and I thank you for that.
[The module] was a great experience. I had the chance to study homeopathy in the easiest way. I enjoyed every single moment in studying and especially the repertory homework. I think that giving more time per module is a good idea.
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.
The instructor is extremely knowledgeable about homeopathy and her enthusiasm and dedication to the profession is admirable. The examples she used from her own practice were very helpful. It is great to experience the clinical work and be involved in the actual selection of rubrics and remedies.
