PART-V

Syllabus

*6 Syllabus for Graded Degree Course:- The following shall be the syllabus for the B.H.M.S. (Graded Degree) Course, namely: -
(i).Practice of Homoeopathic Medicine:- Homoeopathy has a distinct approach to diseases. It recognises disease neither by prominent symptoms nor by those of any organ or part of the body. It treats the patient as a whole and the totality of symptoms exhibited by him represents the disease. Merely the name of the condition from which he suffers is thus of no significance to a Homoeopath. Therefore, in the Graded Degree Course, the subject of Practice of Homoeopathic Medicine including Paediatrics, Preventive and Social Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gyneacology and Systemic Pathology has been introduced on an integrated manner.Medicine is essentially a practical science with stress on systematic disease diagnostic pattern of case taking whereas Homoeopathic Medicine has a variation with stress on constitution, liking/disliking, thermal reaction, mental set up (including behaviour) focusing individualization besides, systematic disease diagnosis. Therefore, practice of Homoeopathic Medicine becomes practical. Therefore the teaching and training at the bedside approach is introduced to inculcate such practical aspects in the mind of the students, to prepare them true Homoeopaths. The following is the course of study for Practice of Homoeopathic Medicine:A course of systematic instructions on the Principles and Practice of Homoeopathic Medicine inclusive of therapeutic prescribing.
The instructions may be given in following manner during 1-1/2 years of clinical course in Practice of Homoeopathic Medicine:
(A)course of General and Systemic Pathology;
(B)A course of Preventive and Social Medicine which includes communicable diseases its prevention, environmental and medicine and family welfare;
(C) Paediatrics: The emphasis should be laid on growth and development of child and common diseases of children;
(D) Surgery: A large number of conditions are amenable to internal medication in Homoeopathy. The scope of Homoeopathy is much wider in the case with surgical dimensions but as supplement to medicine, Surgery has definite place in Homoeopathy and should be taught accordingly with that orientation.
Therefore, a course of instructions on the principles of surgery shall be : -
(a)

Practical instructions in surgical methods including Physiotherapy;

(b)

Practical instructions in minor operative surgery;

(c)

Lectures and demonstrations on radiology;

(d)

Venereal diseases;

(e)

Orthopaedics;

(f)

Dental Diseases;

(g)

Surgical diseases of children;

(h)

Neurosurgery;

(i)

E.N.T.

(j)

Opthalmology;

Lectures and demonstration on surgical appliances and methods of Physiotherapy. Instructions in these branches of medicine should be directed to the attainment of sufficient knowledge to ensure familiarity with the common conditions,
their recognition and homoeopathic treatment.
(E)Obstetrics and Gynaecology: Students must be trained in special clinical methods of investigation for diagnosis local conditions and discriminating cases where surgical intervention, either as a life saving measure or for removing mechanical obstacles is necessary. In this context Homoeopathy adopts the same attitude towards medicine and surgery.A course of systematic instructions on the principles and practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Infant Hygiene with therapeutic prescribing should be given. Throughout the whole period of study, students should be directed towards the importance of diagnosis, prevention and management aspect of the conditions. The instructions in this branch of medicine should be directed to the attainment of sufficient knowledge to ensure familiarity with common conditions, recognition and treatment.In addition to the subjects mentioned above, instructions in clinical medicine may be given on the diseases of different body systems including common diseases of skin.
(F)

Homoeopathic Materia Medica

(a)

Homoeopathic Materia Medica: a) Homoeopathic Materia Medica is differently constructed as compared to other Materia Medicas. Homoeopathy considers that study of the action of drugs on individual parts or system of the body or on animals or isolate organs is only a partial study of life processes under such action and that it does not lead us to full appreciation of the action of the medicinal agent; the drug agent as a whole is lost sight of.

(b)

Essential and complete knowledge of the drug action as a whole can be supplied only by qualitative synoptic drug experiments on healthy persons and this alone can make it possible to view all the scattered data in relation to the psychosomatic whole of a person, and it is just such a person as a whole to the knowledge of drug action is to be applied.

(c)

The Homoeopathic Materia Medica consists of a schematic arrangement of symptoms produced by each drug, incorporating no theories or explanations about their interpretation or inter-relationship. Each drug should be studied synthetically, analytically and comparatively, and this alone would enable a homoeopathic student to study each drug individually and as a whole and help him to be a good prescriber.

(d)

Polychrests and the most commonly indicated drugs for everyday aliments should be taken up first so that in the clinical classes or outdoor duties the students become familiar with their applications. They should be thoroughly dealt with explaining all comparisons and relationship. Students should be conversant with their sphere of action and family relationship.

The less common and rare drugs should be taught in outline, emphasizing only their most salient features and symptoms. Rarer drugs should be dealt with later.

(e)

Tutorials must be introduced so that students in small numbers can be in close touch with teachers and can be helped to study and understand Materia Medica in relation to its application in the treatment of the sick.

(f)

While teaching therapeutics an attempt should be made to recall the Materia Medica so that indications for drugs in a clinical conditions can directly flow out from the provings' of the drugs concerned. The student should be encouraged to apply the resources of the vast Materia Medica in any sickness and not limit himself to memories a few drugs for a particular disease. This Hahnemannian approach will not only help him in understanding the proper perspective of symptoms as applied and their curative value in sickness but will even lighten his burden as far as formal examinations are concerned. Otherwise the present trend produces the allopathic approach to treatment of diseases and is contradictory to the teaching of Organon.

Application of Materia Medica should be demonstrated from cases in the outdoor and hospital wards.

Lectures on comparative Materia Medica and therapeutics as well as tutorials should be as far as possible be integrated with lectures on clinical medicine in the various departments.

(g)

For the Teaching of drugs the college should keep herbarium sheets and other specimens for demonstration to the students. Lectures should be made interesting and slides of plants and materials may be projected.

(h)

(I) Introductory Lectures:

Teaching of the Homoeopathic Materia Medica should include:
(i)Nature and scope of Homoeopathic Materia Medica,
(ii)Sources of Homoeopathic Materia Medica, and
(iii)Different ways of studying the Materia Medica.

(II) The drugs to be taught under the following heads:

(i)Common name, natural order, habitat, part used, preparation,
(ii)Sources of drug proving,
(iii)Symptomatisation of the drug emphasizing the characteristics, symptoms and modalities,
(iv)Comparative study of drugs,
(v)Complementary, inimical, antidotal and concordant remedies,
(vi)Therapeutic application (Applied Materia Medica).

(III)A study of 12 tissue remedies according to Schussler's biochemic system of medicine.

The list of drugs to be taught in BHMS (Graded Degree Course) are as per Appendix.
(G)Organon and Principles of Homoeopathic Philosophy: Hahnemann's Organon of Medicine is the high water mark of medical philosophy. It is an original contribution in the field of medicine in a codified form. A study of the Organon as well as of the history of Homoeopathy and its founder's life story will show that Homoeopathy is a product of application of the inductive logical method of reasoning to the solution of one of the greatest problems of humanity namely the treatment and cure of the sick. A thorough acquaintance with the fundamental principles of logic, both deductive and inductive, is therefore essential. The Organon should accordingly be taught in such a manner as to make clear to the students the implications of the logical principles by which Homoeopathy was worked out and built up and with which a Homoeopathic physician has to conduct his daily work with case and facility in treating every concrete individual case.

The Repertory is an index, a catalogue of the symptoms of the Materia Medica, neatly arranged in a practical form, and also indicating the relative gradation of drugs, and it greatly, facilities quick selection of the indicated remedy. It is impossible to practice Homoeopathy without the aid of Repertories, and the best repertory is that fullest.It is possible to obtain the needed correspondence between drugs and disease conditions in a variety of ways and degrees, and there are therefore different types of repertories, each with its own distinctive advantage in finding the similimum.Case Taking: Difficulties of taking a chronic case. Recording of case and usefulness of record keeping.

Totality of symptoms, prescribing symptoms; uncommon, peculiar and characteristic symptoms, general and particular symptoms; eliminating symptoms analysis of the case, uncommon and common symptoms, gradation and evaluation of symptoms; importance of mental symptoms, kinds and sources of general symptoms.

II GENERAL PRINCIPLES
3. Character of Medical Practitioner
The primary object of the medical profession is to render service to humanity with full respect for the dignity of man; financial reward is a subordinate consideration. Whosoever chooses this profession assumes the obligation to conduct himself in accordance with its ideals. A practitioner of Homoeopathy shall be an upright man, instructed in the art of healing. He shall keep himself pure in character and be diligent in caring for the sick. He shall be modest, sober, patient and prompt and do his duty without anxiety, and shall be pious and conduct himself with propriety in his profession and in all the actions of his life.
4. Standards of Character and Morals
The medical profession expects from its members the highest level of character and morals, and every practitioner of Homoeopathy owes to the profession and to the public alike a duty to attain such a level. It shall be incumbent on a practitioner of Homoeopathy to be temperate in all matters, for the practice of medicine requires unremitting exercise of a clear and vigorous mind.
5. Practitioner’s Responsibility
A practitioner of Homoeopathy shall merit the confidence of patients entrusted to his care, rendering to each full measure of service and devotion. The honoured ideals of the medical profession imply that the responsibilities of a practitioner of Homoeopathy extend not only to individuals but also to the entire society.

Solicitation of patients directly or indirectly by a practitioner of Homoeopathy either personally or by advertisement in the newspapers, by placards or by the distribution of circular cards or handbills is unethical. A practitioner of Homoeopathy shall not make use of, or permit others to make use of, him or his name as a subject of any form or manner of advertising or publicity through lay channels which shall be of such a character as to invite attention to him or to his professional position or skill or as would ordinarily result in his self-aggrandisement provided that a practitioner of Homoeopathy is permitted formal announcement in press about the following matters, namely :-

(2) Fees are reducible at the discretion of the practitioner of Homoeopathy and he shall always recognize poverty as presenting valid claims for gratuitous services;
(3) It shall be unethical to enter into a contract of “no cure no payment”;
