Alumni

About Alumni

Alumni are a vital part of the AMCH community, providing a rich source of guidance and leadership for students.  Alumni are involved in many college activities, including organizing and attending graduate-level seminars; organizing advanced study groups; mentoring current students; supervising student clinical cases; shadow supervision where students observe the alumni taking and analyzing cases; and providing general depth of perspective to students on their journey through their studies.  We have almost one hundred alumni from six Practitioner Program classes and several hundred of graduates of the Distance Learning Program I. Conferences and post-graduate study opportunities are regularly organized, many of which meet the Council for Homeopathic Certification Continuing Education Units. See the Calendar of Events and the Council for Homeopathic Certification requirements.

Malpractice Insurance for Alumni
