One of the biggest challenges homeopathy faces globally is the lack of any globally accepted standards of education and qualification. The problem is further complicated by lack of good, well-trained teachers in many homeopathy schools and colleges.
It will probably take a lot of time (many decades?) before homeopathy organizations can come together and are able to create a standard minimum curriculum. However, the quality of education can be improved much before that – IF homeopathy teachers from across the world collaborate.
Think of a scenario where a homeopathy student from India wants to study Lachesis as part of his course. He studies in his class and then logs into a global repository of online video lectures and listens to a lecture on the same remedy from a teacher in the UK or US. Or a student in UK wishing to study Boger’s repertory in detail logs in to this repository and listens to a lecturer from India.
Think of such a global repository where you have lectures on every homeopathic topic and subject from many teachers from every corner of the world. If this happens then every homeopathy student will get to study with the best homeopathy teachers in the world. Our education will become more uniform and of much better quality even before some of our organizations start working on globally acceptable uniform standards.
This is not a far-fetched dream. We can start this project even with 10 teachers agreeing to contribute their lectures to this global repository. At 100 teachers this project can become a roaring success, a dream come true.
Are you willing to join hands with me on this project? I invite all teachers from all homeopathy schools/colleges in this world to stand up and join hands for this cause. Senior homeopaths who are not associated with any institute but are willing to record video lectures for this project are also welcome.
If you are a homeopathy school or teacher willing to work together to improve the global standards of homeopathy education and want to know more about this project, write to me at [email protected] with your name, city, institute and subjects of interest.
This project will also need homeopathy students as volunteers to help us network with good teachers on the ground. If, as a homeopathy student you wish to be part of the change, write to me at [email protected] with your name, city, institute and year of study.
Let us together make this dream come true!
