What during and after BHMS” – a two hour interactive session for the first BHMS students of Govt. Homoeopathy Medical College Calicut.

“A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning” Brad Henry

GHMC Calicut conduct these type of orientation classes regularly for the UG & PG students – because – in order to succeed in homoeopathy, students must know what they are doing, like what they are doing and believe in what you are doing.

Moreover it is the desire of every student that their teacher will give some meaningful learning experience that will help them to fight the challenges in life.

I have a request to all homoeopathy college authorities – please conduct these type of orientation classes to every first BHMS batches, so they may get an idea about the scope of limitations of BHMS.

Teaching in a professional college is not merely what is in the textbook. But a practical application of various aspects of clinical practice and homoeopathic philosophy. Guidance and counselling that is an un avoidable thing in this era.

  1. This is a very constructive enlightenment from the part of senior homoeopathic practitioners that they can hand down to the beginners. Most of them feel disheartened esp.when they start practice. It is a huge challenge to stay optimistic during the initial years. It is certainly the need of the hour that the budding homeopaths neither lose hope nor focus in treading the road to professional accomplishment and career satisfaction.
