The New York School of Homeopathy
The New York School of Homeopathy is the oldest and largest continuously operating homeopathy college in the United States. Since 1990, our homeopathy training program has provided a classical homeopathic education that prepares students for professional work and national certification. NYSH is the only homeopathy school in New York City with a successfully established 4-year diploma program.
The 4-year curriculum at the New York School of Homeopathy qualifies students to apply for national certification (C.C.H.) through the Council for Homeopathic Certification. The C.C.H. is the only professional homeopathic qualification recognized in the United States. At this time, there is no other federally recognized homeopathic degree or license.
The New York School of Homeopathy is more than a school; it serves as an entry into the national and international community of professional homeopaths.
Our classes provide comprehensive professional training in Classical Homeopathy beginning with the work of its founder, Samuel Hahnemann. In your first two years at NYSH you will receive a solid foundation in the study of homeopathy, followed by two years of advanced clinical work. The first foundation year provides students with a firm understanding of Classical Homeopathy and the skills to apply acute remedies. Students can take the first year solely as a one-year program. Learn more about the 4-year curriculum.
Our internationally respected program weaves the teachings of the early masters with the progressive ideas and clinical approaches of 21st-century homeopaths. By combining a strong classical base with the forward thinking methods in homeopathy today, we train students how to find the true simillimum, or the exactly correct remedy for each individual.
Your two years of work in the NYSH clinic is a distinctive and integral part of your professional training. In our clinic students see new cases under supervision each class weekend, along with follow-ups of cases from the past ten years. It is an unrivaled experience that is crucial to your homeopathic education, and effectively prepares you to begin private practice. To learn more about the clinic, go to Year 3 - Strengthening your clinical abilities.
MENTORSHIP BASED INSTRUCTION
Susan Sonz, the director and principal instructor, guides each student through four years of study at the New York School of Homeopathy. Susan tracks everyone's progress so each student develops the full range of skills required to be a successful homeopath. Unlike many other homeopathy schools that host a different teacher each weekend, NYSH's mentorship system ensures that students receive the individual attention they need to thrive.
To augment our mentorship-based instruction, the New York School of Homeopathy brings the most distinguished homeopaths from around the world to New York City, introducing students to a wide range of advanced contemporary thinking. Our seminars are open to all members of the homeopathic community worldwide. See Seminars.
STUDY GROUPS AND COMMUNITY
Our classroom is available to students and post graduates outside of class weekends, providing a unique opportunity to study together for the NYSH exams and the CHC test. Our midterm and final exams are designed to be similar to the CHC exam in order to help students prepare for certification. Upon graduation, continuing education is provided through the Graduate Apprentice Program (GAP Clinic), where some graduates observe Susan Sonz in her private practice and participate in case analysis. The New York School of Homeopathy is committed to supporting students beyond graduation, as they build their own professional careers.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY, PATHOLOGY AND DISEASE
In addition to its 4-year diploma program, NYSH offers a uniquely designed course of anatomy and pathology for students of homeopathy who would like to complete the CHC requirement. It is approved by the Council for Homeopathic Certification. See A&P.
