Course in Homeopathic Medicine: This theoretical-practical course focuses especially on the development of the skills necessary to solve the complex problems that the homeopathic practitioner has to face in his everyday practice. The purpose of this course is to establish solid bases and a profound understanding of the philosophy and principles underlying homeopathy and, at the same time, to give proper training in the different aspects of homeopathy such as interpretation of symptoms, Materia Medica, and inclusion in the repertory, among others, with emphasis on their practical application. These are the main features of this course:
(I) Upon attending the third year of the Course, our students start our Senior Course for the Continuing Training in Homeopathic Medicine, which enables them to acquire unique experience and knowledge of high academic level due to the consistent exchange and advice received from long-time practising, highly experienced homeopathic practitioners.
(II) Extensive practice in the treatment of patients. Our students take part in the treatment of an average of thirty medical cases each month in their first year. In their second year, our students take part in an average of fifty medical cases each month in our "Solidary Surgeries", where, along with our lecturers, they have the opportunity to give treatment to the Foundation's patients, thus acquiring invaluable and irreplaceable expertise with a view to their own professional careers.
(III) Optional participation in our "Argentine Pathogenesis Programme" (experiments on healthy volunteers) under the supervision of Dr. Carlos N. Cámpora's team.
(IV) Internships in foreign institutions for third-year students with the best marks. Length of the Course Three years, with a total number of 1200 hours.
This course is divided into two stages: 1) the first two years (regular course), and 2) the third year, in which our students join our Senior Course for the Continuing Training in Homeopathic Medicine.

Theoretical lessons: one weekend a month - Fridays, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

VIºContinuing Education Senior Course in Homeopathic Medicine of the Homeopathic Medical Foundation Vitalis (contents in English available)
This theoretical-practical course is given in nine (9) independent annual seminars, whose contents vary every year and allow continuous training and increasing improvement of homeopath physicians. This course is given by Dr. Carlos N. Cámpora, along with a prestigious group of professionals specially invited to this end.
Length of the course: One year, with an aggregate of 100 hours of theoretical training, and practice in the Educational Offices in accordance with each attending professional’s possibilities.
Structure of the course:
Theoretical training: 9 monthly, consecutive, 1-weekend seminars, from April to December 2005, every Friday, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Each seminar includes participation to Clinical Case Debates with videotapes.
Practical training: in our Educational Offices.

Beginning: Friday, April 8, 2005 .

Requirements: to be a graduated homeopathic physician or veterinary.

Remark:
Attendance to different seminars upon choice of each professional is allowed with no need to take part of the complete course.

Attendance required: to obtain the course’s certification and diploma, 80% of the classes.

Final exam: Optional, written, to be held on December 16, 2005.

Purposes of the Course
(a) Homeopathic philosophy and practice: to reflect on and discuss in detail controversial topics which are often difficult to understand or apply, and yet of crucial clinical interest.
(b) Materia Medica: to ascertain and learn about the remedies presented in class, many of them unknown due to lack of knowledge of their existence. This purpose is implemented by the proper understanding of their Pure, Clinical and Toxicological Materia Medica, which leads to an overall new perception of the remedies under scrutiny. Additionally, special emphasis is placed on teaching the most featured symptoms, as well as those clinical directions not normally known and/or which may be missing in the repertory.
(c) Study of the Repertory: to fully develop dexterity in the use of the different repertories and to imbibe students with proper knowledge thereof; also, to clarify the meaning of the different rubrics, the usefulness of related rubrics and valid additions, and the comparison among them.
(d) Updates: these symposia are aimed at updating the knowledge of specific clinical topics which are frequently found in the patients coming to our practice; we also perform a detailed analysis of the homeopathic approach to the topics under study in these updates, an analysis of the repertory applicable to them, the most suitable remedies to be used in them and their most peculiar symptoms, specially highlighting the remedies which are not usually prescribed because they are virtually unknown.
e) Pathogenetic Research: to take part in the results and experience obtained with the performance of the first four pathogenesis with the Double Protocol of Pure Experimentation in Argentina. Although participation in the new pathogenesis is voluntary and optional, the knowledge gained by the attending physicians is unique and essential to understand from their own experience and directly from the source the process by which symptoms develop and sick people get healed thanks to homeopathy.
f) Clinical Debates: difficult and enlightening cases are presented with the purpose of debating their clinical approach, the homeopathic strategy to be applied, as well as the choice, hierarchy, treatment and evolution of symptoms.
