Essentials of Acute and Chronic Prescribing
Date: Saturday May 31 to Friday June 6, 2014
Note that the course 'Essentials of Acute and Chronic Prescribing' is a pre-requisite to 'Case Analysis and Case Management' except for students of Dr. Saine or very experienced practitioners.
Provides an excellent overview of acute and chronic prescribing, with methodical instruction in each step of homeopathic practice: case taking, case analysis, how to effectively use the materia medica, the prescription, and follow-up. Ideally suited for practitioners wanting to achieve mastery in homeopathy. Live case taking and analysis vividly illustrate the material. What makes this course even more valuable is that Dr. Saine draws from within the perspective of pure homeopathy, a most compelling and comprehensive overview of health, disease and healing, longevity, and the role of lifestyle and complementary approaches.
Taught by Dr. Saine for 18 years at the NCH and described by many as an essential prerequisite for successful practice. Past evaluations rated this course 10/10 on all points by 100% of attendees, including a medical practitioner with 25 years of experience in homeopathy! Past attendees of this course are welcome to attend as a refresher with no tuition. Some have returned more than two times to further deepen their understanding of pure homeopathy, as well as to learn from the newly added course material.
These courses are offered to physicians and other primary contact health care practitioners and students of these disciplines.

"Dr. Saine's course on Acute and Chronic Prescribing is an excellent introduction to homeopathy for physicians. Even those who know a fair amount about the subject will benefit greatly from this course. The course takes students through an overview of the fundamentals of homeopathic theory, the process of repertorization, and an introduction to the study of materia medica. Case taking, case analysis, and prescribing are discussed, and students observe Dr. Saine take two new patient cases in person and see how he reasons through the case. In addition, the course introduces students to the rich history of homeopathy and emphasizes the importance a healthy diet and lifestyle to the healing process. Dr. Saine is a true scholar, gifted teacher, and master clinician. Attending this course will undoubtedly change how you think about and practice medicine."
