Allopathy subjects will not be allowed to be introduced in the syllabus of homeopathy colleges in India, said the Central Council of Homeopathy (CCH).
There has been a demand from homoeopathy doctors for the introduction of an integrated course on allopathy that will enable them to practice allopathy as well. There has also been demand for short-term allopathy courses to be allowed for those who have completed homeopathy degree course. But CCH has clearly stated that it will also not allow any attempt to introduce the subjects related to allopathy in the study of homoeopathy. The council had rejected the demand following a meeting in September 2013. CCH is a statutory apex body under the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare. Speaking on the issue, CCH chief Ramjee Singh said, “How can we allow homoeopaths to practice allopathy as they are two completely different branches of medicine.”&nbs
