Find below the syllabus of 2nd Year Homoeopathic Materia Medica (HMM)

NAME OF COURSE: HOMOEOPATHIC MATERIA MEDICA YEAR/SEMESTER: IInd BHMS

  1. Homoeopathic Materia Medica is differently constructed as compared to other Materia Medica.
    1. The Homoeopathic Materia Medica consists of a schematic arrangement of signs and symptoms produced by each drug (symptomatology and drug proving), their interpretation & inter- relationship with each other.
    1. Essential and complete knowledge of the drug action as a whole can be ascertained only by qualitative drug proving on healthy persons and this alone can make it possible to elicit all the symptoms of a drug with reference to the whole of a person; and it is just such as a person as a whole to whom the knowledge of drug action is to be applied.
    1. 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 Homeopathic student to study each drug individually and as a whole and help him to be a good prescriber.
    1. Polychrests and the most commonly indicated drugs for every day ailments 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 homoeopathic medicine are to be taught under the following headings, namely:-
    • Common name, family, habitat, parts used, preparation, constituents (of source material)
    • Proving data.
    • Sphere of action
    • Symptomatology of the medicine emphasizing the characteristic symptoms (mental, physical generals and particulars including sensations, modalities and concomitants) and constitution.
    • Comparative study of medicines.
    • Therapeutic application (applied Materia Medica)

1.2     GOALS:

We are committed to empowering students with the basic knowledge of Homoeopathic Materia Medica and helping them in acquiring the skills to become a good Homoeopathic physician.

1.3     EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES:

  1. Comprehensive training in the theory of Homoeopathic Materia Medica (science, philosophy and construction).
  2. To simplify the understanding of symptomatology with the help of teaching a drug and develop students analytical abilities for the study of comparative materia medica.
  3. Knowledge and skills related to pathophysiology of homoeopathic drugs in order to apply it in day-to-day homoeopathic practice.
