About the NZ Diploma in Acute Prescribing with Homeopathy:

The New Zealand Diploma in Acute Prescribing with Homeopathy is an NZQA Accredited Level 5, 120 Credit qualification offering training in all aspects of acute homeopathy – from philosophy and theory to medical science and practical acute clinical application.

Do you have a passion for natural health and complementary medicine? Do you want to have an impact on your family, friends, animals and community? Then this is the perfect place to begin your new journey!

This course will give students essential homeopathic knowledge to prescribe acute remedies to friends, family, and clients in common acute situations such as headaches, cuts, scrapes, bruises, fevers, cases of flu and stomach upsets to name just a few.

Students will also learn the required skills to engage in an acute clinical environment, including methods of client case taking along with business practices and marketing skills to ensure graduates can successfully set up and manage their acute prescribing practice.

Throughout this course, students will understand their unique scope of practice within the wider complementary health sector, while learning when to refer to other health practitioners as necessary.

Graduates of this program are eligible for entry into the New Zealand Diploma in Homeopathy and specialise in either Human or Animal Health (Level 6).

Course subjects

  • Materia Medica and Therapeutics – learning about individual homeopathic remedies, where they come from, what conditions and symptoms we use them for (at this level, it will be for acute conditions only)
  • Medical Science – Anatomy and Physiology – learning the normal structure and function in the body so that we can then identify when things go wrong
  • History of Healing – how healing has developed over the millennia and where homeopathy came into this timeline.
  • Research and Critical Thinking – an introduction to research and evidence-based practice(at this level, we will look at how to search for literature and how to read a paper)
