Advanced Homeopathic Practitioner Programme

Gurukul is an ancient pedagogic system where the teaching learning process is imparted directly from the teacher to the student in a dedicated environment and focused manner for a certain period of time. Dr Rajan Sankaran , an internationally renowned homeopathic practitioner and teacher for more than four decades would like to re-invent the Gurukul system in facilitating young homeopathic practitioners enhance their practice.

The Gurukul-Advanced Homeopathic Practitioner Programme is a one- year programme (online and offline) aimed at empowering young practicing homeopaths to improve the quality of their practice. The programme believes that the utilization of traditional homoeopathic tools such as materia medica and the repertory (left-brain concepts) in combination with more modern homeopathic approaches such as sensation and kingdom understandings (right-brain concepts) generate the most success in clinical practice. While remaining grounded in basic homeopathic philosophies and methodologies, this programme invites the practitioners to explore a variety of contemporary homeopathic approaches.

Dr Rajan Sankaran will be personally supervising this course and will have periodic Q and A sessions and decisions with the students. Through his trusted co -mentors he will be keeping close track of each students progress and challenges and will guide the students on how these can be addressed. The student will get to witness Dr Sankarans live case taking . Students are also invited to bring in difficult cases from their practice following which they will receive guidance from Dr Sankaran on how best these cases can be managed.

During the in-person sessions with Dr Sankaran, the students will not only gain homeopathic knowledge but will gain insight into what motivates and inspires Dr Sankaran in his work. They will be able to see his very attitude and the perception from which all his innovations and discoveries have emerged. In this sense the student will be imbibing his spirit along with the knowledge he has to offer. This is the true essence of any Gurukul.


  • Access to The Sankaran Masterclass: This is a specially curated video series which has more than 185 hours of lectures and cases of Dr Sankaran. It has been very carefully designed and is divided into 5 modules covering all areas of practice from basic to advanced. This also includes the latest Superclass and WISE ideas and how to use them in the clinic.( Please check for syllabus details)


  • Participants of this programme will be given the opportunity to hone their skills in the Other Song Academy Mumbai, for nine to eleven days every six months. The Other song is one of the most advanced training centers for homeopathy world wide. The teaching here, mainly takes place through live cases. The students will be able to watch how Dr Sankaran receives cases, they can learn the skill of case taking and analysis directly from him. Besides this, the students will also get the opportunity to learn from experienced and internationally recognized teachers of homeopathy. 


  • Residential in person sessions with Dr Sankaran at the Hidden Oasis in Pune, for three to five days every 6 months where the students will get the opportunity to participate in the WISE retreat. (WISE -Witnessing Inner Song Experience). Dr Sankaran will be leading these retreats.

The course fees would be Rs. 1 lakh per student for the entire course.

A simple calculation will show that the various components of this course like the retreat, master class access, mentoring , homeopathic software , books by Dr Sankaran etc would be several times higher than what the course is being offered for. This is only possible because this course is supported by patrons of homeopathy due to which the fee is heavily subsidised.
