* Homoeopathy in South Africa *

Since 1974 Homoeopathy became a legal profession which requires its members to register at a professional body before they are allowed to practice.

Currently there are over 700 registered homoeopaths in the country with approximately 100-200 new entrants to the courses provided. There are two institutions that provide homoeopathic training at tertiary level: The University of Johannesburg and the Durban Institute of Technology.

Training comprises a five year full time course ending in a masters degree (M Tech: Hom). The learning plan for the first three years closely follows that of medical school and includes anatomy and dissection, physiology, chemistry etc.

Homoeopharmaceutics is taught from fourth year and therefore the surgery aspect that the medical doctors focus on is replaced with homoeopathic pharmacy.

One of the requirements for the masters degree is that students complete a research dissertation.

Both campuses have clinics where final year students can see patients under the supervision of more experienced homoeopaths.

Currently new government law requires Homoeopathic practitioners to hold a dispensing licence.

This will enable licence holders to be compensated by medical aids when they send in their claims. This law will also make life difficult for illegal practitioners.
