The International Academy of Classical Homeopathy (IACH)(http://www.vithoulkas.com/, https://www.vithoulkas.edu.gr/) is an educational institution which annually presents academic Courses in homeopathy for the effective clinical practise of Classical Homeopathy.
The aim of the IACH is the professional education of Medical Doctors, Medical students and health practitioners in order to become effective Classical Homeopaths, according to the principles of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.
The IACH was established in 1995 by the world-acclaimed classical homeopath Professor George Vithoulkas, and is located on the Marine Park island of Alonissos in the Northern Aegean Sea.
The IACH is committed exclusively to the academic teaching of homeopathic medicine where Prof. George Vithoulkas not only instructs from his vast medical experience spanning over half a century, but teaches from his current ground-breaking paradigm, as described in his book “The Science of Homeopathy”, a classic book of Homeopathy and in his recent book “Levels of Health”.
Every year, during the summer months, groups of doctors and other medical and academic professionals from around the world gather to be trained at the IACH. They come from all over the world, e.g. Germany, Russia, U.S.A, Romania, India, Italy, Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom, Greece, Peru, Canada, Austria, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Serbia, Slovenia, Ukraine, Croatia, etc.
Over fifteen thousand medical doctors (15,000) and other professional medical practitioners from over sixty-two (62) countries have been trained by the IACH, and their numbers are growing annually.
The IACH Courses in Alonissos provide detailed information to help doctors determine each patient’s state of health, as well as facilitate their ability to effectively treat such cases.

"Levels of Health" is a highly original contribution to medicine in general and to homeopathy in particular by Prof. George Vithoulkas. By describing a means of knowing whether a patient is improving or regressing under any treatment, whether homeopathic or otherwise, provides the possibility for the practitioner to evaluate the case and make a better and more accurate prognosis: https://www.vithoulkas.edu.gr/postgraduate-courses/levels-of-health-courses.
The “Organon” covers Analysis and Commentary of Organon. "Organon is the basic text that contains the substance of Homeopathy and spirit of Hahnemann. The one who comprehends its message can be called a real homeopathic physician" - Prof. George Vithoulkas: https://www.vithoulkas.edu.gr/postgraduate-courses/organon-courses.
“Difficult Cases” - this is a Postgraduate Course that contains exclusively Difficult Cases with long term follow ups – ranging from 1 to 7 years.
