Got a question for us?
What are our students saying?
I found it very meaningful to study Homeopathy. Its principles and approach to medical treatment is very comprehensive and the clinical training exposure is well planned. This is a very fulling career option for me and has given me a strong professional purpose
Homeopathy taught me to view a patient’s illness in a holistic manner and to adopt an equally holistic approach to treatment. We are though the medical sciences behind various illness and what causes it. Then we are introduced to how natural substances have a unique effect on various symptoms as a treatment.
I like the B.H.M.S programme at CUCMS as it is very comprehensive. The curriculum gives me the opportunity to learn both clinical aspects of diseases and their homeopathy management. It’s clear from the very start that the university has considered the needs of practitioners and encourages and equips graduates to open their own practice or clinics
