When student enters third year, he has already grasped basic Sciences of Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology and has been introduced to Clinical Medicine, Surgery, Gynaecology and Obstetrics.
Organon including Philosophy is the subject which builds up the conceptual base for the physician. It illustrates those principles which when applied in practice enable physician to obtain results which he can explain rationally and repeats them in practice with greater competence. Focus of the Education & Training should be to build up this conceptual base. This can be delivered effectively if there is proper integration of various disciplines, various knowledge throughout the subject of ORGANON-PHILOSOPHY.
(I) HAHNEMANN’S THEORY OF CHRONIC DISEASE
Proper emphasis should be made on the way in which each miasmatic phase evolves and the characteristic expressions which are thrown off at various level. This will bring out characteristic PATTERN of each miasm. Definite attempt should be made to understand theory of CHRONIC MIASM in the light of our knowledge of basic sciences of ANATOMY, PHYSIOLOGY, PATHOLOGY & MEDICINE. This would demand CO-RELATION OF HOMOEOPATHIC PHILOSOPHY with allied sciences.
Teacher should bring out clearly therapeutic implications of THEORY OF CHRONIC MIASM in practice. This will demand comprehension of EVOLUTION OF NATURAL DISEASE from miasmatic angle. This will require to be correlated with applied Materia Medica. Here you demonstrate how various drugs would come up in Psoric, Sycotic and syphilitic state of the clinical diseases.
Thus ORGANON & PHILOSOPHY will bring out effectively integration of Anatomy, Physiology Psychology, Pathology, Clinical Medicine, Materia Medica and Therapeutics. This would demand greater interdepartmental co-ordination.
