The course is intended as a sampler course for those undecided and not yet ready to commit to studying homeopathy to a practitioner level. It provides a solid grounding in the philosophy and fundamental principles governing the practice of this great art, along with studies of some primary remedies.

Self-assessment questions are given for each unit along with associated readings and assignments.

"The lectures that have been recorded and provided have been very helpful and give a distance student in particular the feeling of being a part of the classroom experience. 

It helps with the additional stimulation of auditory learning as well.  Thank you for adding this facet, as I was moving through my experience with CCHM."
