Diploma programs

The HCH offers two undergraduate practitioner diplomas in human health and disease. The first diploma program is for those seeking a foundational basis in Heilkunst focusing on the sequential treatment of shocks and traumas, such as birth, vaccination, and drug shocks, and leads to the award of the DSH designation. This Diploma is normally completed within three years. The second diploma program is a more extensive one, involving advanced topics in dynamic physiology, drug-herb-nutrient interactions, dynamic dentistry, and more. This program normally takes four years to complete. Completion in either program may be extended by special arrangement through the Registrar. There is also a similar animal diploma program for each of the two programs for those wishing to treat animals, leading to the award of the DSV or DAHH designation.

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 general diploma 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. 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.

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.)

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.
