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.
George Vithoulkas is today Honorary Professor at the University of the Aegean, Greece, Honorary Professor at the State Medical University of Chuvash Republic (Russia), Honorary Professor of the National Educational Centre for Traditional and Complementary Medicine (Russia), Honorary Professor of the Pontifical Javeriana Medical University (Colombia), Honorary Professor at the All-Russia Scientific Research Center for Restorative and Resort Medicine of the Ministry of Health of Russian Federation, Honorary Professor at the Kiev Medical Academy, Honorary Professor of PHEE “Kyiv Medical University”, Honorary Professor at Dnipro Medical Institute of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (Ukraine), Honorary Professor of Dnipro Institute of Medicine and Public Health (Ukraine), Doctor Honoris Causa of “Dr. Viktor Babes” University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Timisoara (Romania) and Doctor Honoris Causa of “Iuliu Hatieganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Cluj-Napoca (Romania).
