|Who we are|
The International Academy of Classical Homeopathy (I.A.C.H.) (http://www.vithoulkas.com/, http://www.vithoulkas.edu.gr/, http://www.vithoulkasbooks.gr/) is located in Alonissos, a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. It is the only institution in the world dedicated exclusively to the teaching of Homeopathic Medicine.
George Vithoulkas established the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy in 1995, where he serves as Head of Educational Department (Educator). In this Academy, George Vithoulkas gives over the knowledge gleaned from his 50 years of his experience and teaches his most current theories regarding Levels of Health. In his teachings, he provides detailed information that both helps doctors determine each patient’s state of health, as well as facilitates their ability to estimate whether a case is curable with homeopathy and the amount of time and remedies that will be needed to accomplish a cure.
The Curriculum of the Program of the Homeopathic Courses that is taught at IACH is the following:
Since 2005 to 2008, the University of the Aegean in co-operation with International Academy of Classical Homeopathy, had been offered a Program of Continuous Education in Homeopathy for greek medical doctors, dentists, veterinarians and pharmacists.
In Ukraine, the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy is in cooperation with the Kiev Medical Academy (http://kmapo.edu.ua/en/mdeyatel/klgemeopat ), a state Medical Academy with 85 year old tradition- carrying out a Postgraduate Educational Program in Homeopathy for Medical Doctors and Pharmacists where the videotaped teaching of George Vithoulkas is projected.
The same is taking place in Russia where Classical Homeopathy is taught as a Postgraduate Educational Program for Medical Doctors in the Moscow Medical Academy in the Department of Restorative Medicine. The graduating doctors get a specialization in Classical Homoeopathy recognised by the Ministry of Health. The lectures are based on the teaching material provided by the I.A.C.H.
Many of the courses presented at the I.A.C.H. by Prof. Vithoulkas are also available in video for use by other schools of Classical Homeopathy around the world. At the end of the course all the students will have to take examinations to get the homeopathic diploma of the I.A.C.H. Those that will not take the examinations or fail in them they will receive a certificate of attendance. Students from other sciences can be attending the course as observers, but they will not have the right to take the examinations.
Also, the teaching of Prof. Vithoulkas is projected through the e-learning program and video courses in Croatia, Egypt, Germany, Holland, India (in three different places), Italy, Mexico, Peru, Romania, Russia (Siberia), Serbia, Sweden, United Kingdom.
In 1996, George Vithoulkas was awarded with the Right Livelihood Award (Alternative Nobel Prize-one of the most valid awards worldwide as described by the United Nations) for his contribution in the field of Homeopathy. In the award statement the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy is mentioned as the place where the science of classical homeopathy is taught and promoted.
Our vision is the IACH to become a Foundation which will promote the correct teaching of Classical Homeopathy, organize international meetings, promote research, inform doctors & patients for its possibilities and honor the best research projects as well as the best homeopaths from all over the world.
