The HCH offers an undergraduate practitioner diploma in human health and disease. This diploma program is for those seeking a foundational basis in Heilkunst focusing on the sequential treatment of shocks and traumas such as birth, vaccination, drug shocks and more and leads to the award of the DSH designation. This Diploma is normally completed within three years*.
Following completion of the undergraduate program, students may elect to continue their studies by undertaking to study various topics depending on their interest and the challenges of their particular practice. This post-graduate program enables more in-depth studies of various topics as well as more advanced case analysis and management skills for the most complex, chronic cases.
The HCH also offers a more extensive diploma program through the School for Romantic Science and Healthcare involving all of the material covered in the DSH plus advanced topics in dynamic physiology, drug-herb-nutrient interactions, dynamic dentistry, and more. Details of this program can be found on the Centre for Romantic Science and Healthcare’s website.
For those who do not intend to practice, but wish to learn more about Heilkunst and the Dynamic System of thought that underpins it – how it applies to the betterment of the human condition, both individually and collectively, in terms of the body, mind, soul and spirit – the HCH offers a diploma program in aesthetics. This program is intended for those who wish to study the underlying principles and philosophy of the dynamic system of thought, from its earthly inception and spiritual origins through its history of unfoldment to its application to various walks of life. The course will base itself on the original model of a true arts and science education, covering various disciplines (history, religion, philosophy [arts and science], anthropology, anthroposophy, biology, chemistry, mathematics, physiology, economics, politics, law, education) in a cohesive and integrative manner. Further details on this program can be found on the Centre for Romantic Science and Healthcare’s website.
Students in all programs will be expected to do readings, to engage in discussion and to present ideas for discussion. Assignments will be varied, with student contributions coming in varied form (choice of essay, oral presentations, or other forms of expression – music, painting, sculpture, poetry, etc.).
*Please note that all practitioner diploma programs come with a mandatory treatment component. Details of this can be provided by contacting the Registrar’s office of the College. You can contact the Registrar’s office for a list of approved practitioner’s who are able to treat students. It is strongly recommended that if you are even considering beginning to study with the HCH you start your treatment immediately as depending on the needs of your individual treatment plan, your study time may be impacted.
NB: The practitioner diplomas offered do not constitute any legal permit to practice, which is based on meeting the particular laws of the country, province or state in which you reside or practice.
