CCH: 'No' to Allopathy subjects in Homeopathy

No Allopathy subjects in Homeopathy


On 7th January, 2014 the Central Council of Homeopathy (CCH) has made the final decision of not including Allopathy subjects in their curriculum. CCH is a statutory apex body that falls under the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.

This decision will curb the demands from the Homeopathy doctors who have asked the CCH to include few subjects from Allopathy in their course syllabus. The doctors made this demand so that in future, if they want to switch over to Allopathy then they can easily do so. Apart from this, CCH also turned down another demand of their doctors who requested the council to introduce a short term Allopathy course, for doctors who have completed their degree course. CCH chief, Ramjee Singh has declined this offer stating that it is impossible for the council to run such type of course.

Ramjee Singh says "The CCH strictly disapproved of allowing even an attempt of introducing the Allopathy related subjects in the study of homeopathy."

He put forth his query "How the council can allow homeopaths to practice Allopathy since they both are two entirely distinct branches of medicine."

He stated further "To regulate the functioning and operation of homeopathy colleges in the country and to standardize the homeopathic education in sync with the syllabus prescribed by the CCH, several measures are being taken."

Both CCH and Health Ministry has made the Minimum Standard Education Requirement (MSER) which needs to be implemented in all Homeopathy colleges of the country. However, the implementation couldn't be completed due to practical difficulties, so the authorities have postponed the implementation process until the next academic year.
