The quality of homeopathic education is decreasing day by day. Professionally honest educators, who are genuinely interested in teaching, are decreasing day by day. Teachers are more interested in private practice and fabricated seminars which increase their income and popularity rather than regular classroom or clinical teaching. The love respect relationship between students and teachers are also at the minimum. There are many factors to blame.

The teacher thinks that, he is a paid employee and therefore his duty is only to teach in the prescribed period without knowing the pulse of the student. Thus students lose interest in the particular subject that is being taught

This book suggest various methods and techniques to improve the quality of education in Homoeopathic medical colleges through innovative methods of teaching and learning process.

Teachers directly coming into the profession after BHMS or MD (Hom) without  acquiring teaching skills, since we do not have courses like BEd or MEd. We may have good clinical skill but less teaching skill. Remember it is a skill that can be mastered only through practice.

Technology now open up new opportunities, making education more attractive, effective and result oriented.
