What training do homeopaths require?

Homeopathy is a regulated profession in the province of Ontario. Homeopaths are now registered members of the College of Homeopaths in Ontario.

Homeopathy is practiced by professional homeopaths, and some naturopaths.

They must take a three- to four-year accredited training program at a homeopathic college/school. Training includes anatomy, pathology, intense advanced homeopathic studies and clinical experience.

Accredited schools often give their own designation to their graduates. In addition, homeopaths can receive a designation from a recognized Homeopathic Association after completing all their educational requirements.
