TUITION QUESTIONS:

How much is tuition at the New York School of Homeopathy?
  • The NYSH annual tuition is $4,200 if paid in full, or $4,600 if paid in installments of four payments at $1,150 each.
  • Payment in full or the first installment of $1,150 (minus your $200 deposit/administration fee) is due upon registration for new students, or by September 1 for returning students.
  • For those choosing the payment plan, each additional installment of $1,150 is due in December, January, and March. A $50 late fee is added for late payments.
We increase tuition as seldom as possible. NYSH makes every effort to keep our tuition prices low so that our students can afford to study and attend seminars. We believe in making quality homeopathic education available to anyone who has a genuine interest and passion.

STUDYING AT NYSH:

How much time will I spend studying at the New York School of Homeopathy?

Each class meets Saturday and Sunday from 1 pm to 6 pm via Zoom Conferencing, with a mid-session 20 minute break. See schedule.

How much homework is there?
Homework assignments are given each month between classes, and summer homework assignments are given between years of study. A minimum of three hours per week of homework study is recommended, but the more studying you accomplish, the more you will benefit, and the better prepared you will be for each class.

What if I miss a class?
We urge students to be sure to check the class schedule prior to enrollment, and make the commitment to attend every class weekend. However, we recognize that emergencies do arise and personal commitments may, on occasion, cause you to miss a class. If you know in advance that you will not be able to attend a particular weekend, you should inform Alexis, the school administrator, and it may be possible to make alternative arrangements. If necessary, classroom hours can be made up by attending the missed weekend the following year.

How does mentorship-based teaching work at NYSH?
You will be spending almost every weekend with Susan Sonz throughout the 3-year program in a class of 15 to 20 students. This allows for a unique mentorship to develop between Susan and NYSH students, as she gets to know each individual very well. Students also benefit from a consistent style of teaching and practice, with each weekend every year building on the one before it. Our guest teaching faculty – Dr. Rajan Sankaran, Resie Moonen M.D., Dr. Paresh Vasani and Dr. Divya Chhabra – used to visit our school often to hold special seminars. Now that we are online, Susan will inform you of special online seminars that they are holding, as well as other worthwhile webinars. The teachers demonstrate their own various methods of case-taking and practice, and Susan helps the students learn these techniques in order to create their own personal method of working with clients. In this way, students are able to learn from the old masters as well as the most progressive and successful homeopaths of today. See “Blending the Old and the New“ While Susan is the primary instructor, our Acute Diseases and Injuries classes are taught by Birgit Kleinfeld, C.C.H., I.H.C.

What is the New York School of Homeopathy clinic and how does it work?
The 2nd and 3rd years at NYSH are mainly clinical experience. However, students begin their clinical observation in their first year, where they will sit in on one clinic class. When you officially join the clinic in your 2nd year, new clients are seen once a month on a Saturday afternoon. Case taking involves a student homeopath and Susan Sonz, the Director, while the rest of the class observes and takes notes, without direct participation. Follow-ups with previous clients are usually scheduled on Sunday afternoons. On Saturday evening, each student is expected to analyze the case, choose a remedy, and write up the case. Sunday afternoon is spent discussing the case. Under the supervision of Susan Sonz, a consensus is reached and a remedy choice is made. The student homeopath will be expected to manage the case, again under supervision and with the help and support of the clinic class. Regular updates on each client are submitted via email, and discussion is encouraged as issues of remedy, potency and management arise. Because many of our clinic clients have been coming to us for years, the NYSH clinic offers a unique opportunity for students to follow new and older clients for an extended period of time, and get hands-on experience with the real issues of case management.
GRADUATING FROM NYSH:

What qualification will I earn on graduation and does NYSH offer job placement?
Students who complete all the course requirements receive a diploma from the New York School of Homeopathy. All students who attend classes will receive confirmation of their hours of attendance. Additional work results in additional credit hours. Only students who fulfill the following requirements will achieve a diploma.

What are the requirements for graduating with a NYSH diploma? In order to receive a diploma from NYSH, students must:
  • Attend the class weekends for 3 years
  • Complete all homework in a satisfactory manner
  • Pass all annual mid-term and final exams
  • Demonstrate competence in case taking, analysis and management
  • Pass a comprehensive exam after the completion of the 3rd year
  • Complete an independent graduate project
  • Submit five private cases taken under supervision outside of class

Degree in homeopathy
There is no such thing as a degree in homeopathy in New York State and most of the United States. Any school that promises a degree in homeopathy may be misleading you, and that degree probably has no legal standing. However, a diploma from a reputable homeopathy school such as NYSH does mean a great deal within the international homeopathic community.

Job placement
We do not offer placement assistance per se, as there are many ways to establish a private or group practice. Many of our students add homeopathic treatment to their already established complimentary/alternative or medical practices. We do, however, offer ongoing mentorship through our Graduate Apprentice Program (GAP Clinic), and study groups to those who qualify.

Post Graduate Study and GAP Clinic
After graduation from NYSH, we offer continuing education through the Graduate Apprentice Program (GAP Clinic). The GAP Clinic is an internship program that bridges the gap between graduation and private practice. Participation is by invitation only; the students who display special interest and ability in their four years of study are invited as interns to observe Susan Sonz take her own private cases, after which everyone is invited to discuss the remedy selection. Case management issues are discussed as the case develops and followups are observed. This is a special opportunity to continue to work with dedicated homeopaths, while you build your own private practice. The New York School of Homeopathy is committed to supporting graduated students as they build their professional careers. SEE THE TOPICS POST “Beginning Private Practice

PRIVATE PRACTICE:

Is there a license to practice homeopathy?

There is no such thing as a license to practice homeopathy in the United States. We are closely involved with organizations at the local and national levels, e.g. National Center for Homeopathy (NCH), the National Health Freedom Coalition, and the Association for International Homeopathic Certification (AIHC), and we keep our students informed as legal issues affect our profession.

In most of the US, and in New York State, homeopaths comfortably practice homeopathy within certain guidelines. Homeopaths do not call themselves doctors, we do not conduct physical exams, nor do we dispense medicines. Legally we are considered consultants.

Certification is not a requirement of practice, and participation is strictly voluntary. But NYSH strongly encourages all our graduates to become certified I.H.C. Our program, including our Anatomy and Physiology/Pathology and Disease course, meets all the AIHC requirements for homeopathic training.

Can I practice homeopathy in New York State?
Yes. In NY State most homeopaths refer to themselves as “consultants.” There is no history of legal difficulty for homeopaths in this state and we comfortably operate private practices as professional homeopaths. However, even though NY is a positive environment, at NYSH we support the efforts of the National Health Freedom Coalition and we encourage others to do so. Around the world homeopathy is being challenged, and the NHFC promotes the understanding of the laws in each state that impact one’s right to access alternative and complementary health practitioners and medicines.
