Homoeopathy has a distinct approach to disease. It recognizes diseases neither by its prominent systems nor by those any organ or part of the body. It treats the patient as a whole and the totality of the symtoms exhibited by him represents his disease. Merely the name of the condition from which he suffers most is thus of no significance to a homoeopath.
The basic principles of homoeopathy that it treats the patient and not his disease should be constantly impressed in the minds of students, and it is only when this approach is firmly inculcated in them that they will be true homoeopaths.
The subject of practice of medicine is taught in a homoeopathic orientation, so as to enable the students to treat the patient as a whole. A holistic approach of treatment is emphasized Medicine is essentially a practical science and can be more learnt at the bed-side than in a class room. Care should therefore be taken to impart an intensive clinical training to the students during the later part of their study in the college.
