The School operates a small library. Students may borrow any book or books from the stock and may hold that book for study as long as they need it or until another student requests it. New Library books are purchased several times a year.
There is a 20-euro charge for joining the scheme to cover the cost of any books that might be damaged or lost. If no books are damaged or lost this 20-euro will be refunded when the student graduates.
The School has an arrangement with a specialist homoeopathy bookseller who attends frequently at our weekend seminars to sell and exhibit homoeopathic and other relevant publications.
Social contact between students and with staff is desirable but difficult on a part time course.
School supported events are:
- Monthly meeting between staff and students at a local hostelry close to the University campus
- Christmas party organised by student entertainment committee
- End of year picnic.
Lectures and Seminars – Continued Professional Development (CPD)
The continued development of feedback between staff and students seems to be encouraging reflection and action.
At ICHM we continue to support our students after they graduate. We recognise that new homoeopaths and indeed those that have been in practise for many years, need to continue their homoeopathic learning and personal development. Our Principal and Core Team are available for advice, supervision and support to all Graduates that request it. All Graduates are kept in touch with latest ICHM developments through regular e-mails, newsletters, our website and the post.
We run a series of CPD events during the year, ranging from peer supervision to workshops, lectures and special seminars. The program is not cast in stone and we consult with Graduates to identify what their CPD needs are.
Recent CPD events have included:
- Cases workshop with Miranda Castro
- Cancer Seminar with Ann Saunders
- Men’s Health workshop & Peer supervision with Mo Morrish
- Köpa Melatonin with Dr Backhaus
- Alternative Prescribing Methods Lecture with Anthony Bickley
- Acute Illness, it’s principles & management Seminar with Dr F Master
