Second year begins with intensive case-taking workshops with Dr. Joseph Kellerstein, one of the top Homeopaths in the world. Throughout clinical training, you see consistent positive patient outcomes and receive coaching on the recognition of characteristic symptoms, the translation of patient language into homeopathic language, and case management. You actively follow patient cases through a series of appointments, allowing you to see the results and ongoing case management. The benefit of this kind of clinical training is one of the most important aspects to CCHM’s program, it is what truly allows CCHM graduates to go out into the world, and be able to reproduce what they have learned, which is based on the sound scientific principles of pure homeopathy. This translates into being able to help people, and when you help people they come back and they send referrals – and this is how you establish a successful practice.

Homeopathy achieved its greatest popularity in the 19th century. It was introduced to the United States in 1825 by Hans Birch Gram, a student of Hahnemann.  The first homeopathic school in the US opened in 1835, and in 1844, the first US national medical association, the American Institute of Homeopathy , was established. Throughout the 19th century, dozens of homeopathic institutions appeared in Europe and the United States,  and by 1900, there were 22 homeopathic colleges and 15,000 practitioners in the United States.  Because medical practice of the time relied on ineffective and often dangerous treatments, patients of homeopaths often had better outcomes than those of the doctors of the time.  Homeopathic preparations, even if ineffective, would almost surely cause no harm, making the users of homeopathic preparations less likely to be killed by the treatment that was supposed to be helping them.  The relative success of homeopathy in the 19th century may have led to the abandonment of the ineffective and harmful treatments of bloodletting and purging and to have begun the move towards more effective, science-based medicine.  One reason for the growing popularity of homeopathy was its apparent success in treating people suffering from infectious disease epidemics.  During 19th-century epidemics of diseases such as cholera , death rates in homeopathic hospitals were often lower than in conventional hospitals, where the treatments used at the time were often harmful and did little or nothing to combat the diseases.
