The E-learning Course offered by the IACH contains all the necessary knowledge to provide a solid foundation towards becoming a good homeopath. So our Diploma certifies knowledge but does not automatically give one the right to practice homeopathy. Students must comply with the laws and regulations of their respective country. As these laws are varied around the world, the responsibility for that research falls to the interested student.

The right for participation in the Diploma examinations is extended to all those who have the legal right to practice homeopathy in their respective country.

For Greek residents, the right for participation in the Diploma examinations is extended to all Medical Doctors, Dentists and Veterinary Doctors.

The objective of the Union is the dissemination of Classical Homeopathy according to the principles of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, Dr. James Tyler Kent, and Prof. George Vithoulkas. The function of the Union is purely and strictly scientific. Union members are entitled to utilize U.DI.HO.P after their name - i.e. John Doe, U.DI.HO.P.

In this link https://www.vithoulkas.com/writings/articles you may find the Research work by Professor George Vithoulkas and his Research Team.

So far the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy (IACH) has been invited to, and presented papers in, many international medical congresses of exceptionally high standards -papers which present novel ideas that have an important application not only in homeopathy but in general medicine as well.

These novel ideas have been proposed by Prof. George Vithoulkas in his book “Levels of Health” and in his article the “The Continuum of a Unified theory of Diseases”. Here are the Medical Congresses in which the IACH participated: https://www.vithoulkas.com/research/congresses
