Author: Galhardi W.M.P.

Abstract: This study focuses on training for homeopathic physicians as one of the actions developed for humanizing medical practice. In Brazil, this took place outside of university-level teaching institutions until 2003, when the specialization course on homeopathy was established at Jundiai School of Medicine, with teaching practice and attendance for public health service users. This study aimed to assess the training for homeopathic physicians at Jundiai and the perceptions of users, health professionals, course teachers and tutors and the school's academic board, regarding homeopathy and the course. The study was qualitative and used interviews, focus group techniques and questionnaires. Three analytical categories emerged from the data: a) knowledge of reference points for homeopathy; b) homeopathy as a new paradigm for teaching and attendance within public health; and c) general course structure. It was concluded that teaching homeopathy in university-level institutions is viable as a public health-oriented clinical teaching activity.
