Although only M.D.s are allowed to practice homeopathy, many lay-practitioners do so as well and this is tolerated. The two official schools only accept M.D.s, Escuela de Medicina Juan N. Corpas and Instituto Homeopatico Luis G. Paez. The National Ministry of Education now recognizes the “Fundacio?n Universitaria Escuela Colombiana de Homeopati?a “Luis G. Pa?ez” (FUNHOM)” as a university.
Fundacio?n Universitaria Escuela Colombiana de Homeopati?a, Luis G. Paez
This foundation is a very serious institution and has been doing rigorous provings in the last decade. It is controlled only by MD's and has no recognition from the Colombian State. (.....) Everyone in Colombia, practitioners and MD´s in a way are practicing homeopathy illegally. This institute goes to a postgraduate level only for MDs and veterinary doctors. There is no undergraduate program in Colombia in the present.
