We were recently in New Delhi, and paid a visit to the Nehru Homeopathic College and Hospital, located in the city center. With only a short time before catching a train to other parts of India…..we had a brief, but informative tour. This hospital/college of homeopathy is completely government-funded, and completely free to the patients. They offer a 4-year training program in classical homeopathy, with 100 students graduating every year. There is a busy out-patient clinic, with specialities in skin, and ob/gyne being especially active.
Labs and Xrays are done in-house, as well as surgical gynecology procedures. The pharmacy prepares prescriptions for all of the out-patients, as well as hospitalized patients.
We were impressed with the detailed visit forms, as well as the attention to patient education, and general compassion for patients. Although homeopathy is making a strong comeback in the USA, we are far from having a strictly homeopathic hospital.
