Curriculum Vitae

Professor George Vithoulkas​

George Vithoulkas is a Greek Professor of Homeopathic Medicine who is recognized around the world as the personality who re-established homeopathy in the 20th century.

He is the only teacher to permit students attendance at all his live cases; he explains the method of how to take a case, how to analyze it and how to arrive at the right decision for a homeopathic remedy. But the most important advantage for students is that they can observe follow-ups and results after the prescription.

In this way, Professor George Vithoulkas demonstrates the whole process of case management which thereby reveals thorough and empirical information concerning the application of Classical Homeopathy. This process is similar to instructions offered at conventional medical hospitals. 

Professor Vithoulkas’ knowledge comes from 60 years’ indefatigable efforts to improve, through practice and constant research, the standards of education in order that the empirical effectiveness of the original Classical Hahnemannian Homeopathy will be recognized and accepted by Medical Universities and Medical Practitioners.
