2. ADVANCE FELLOWSHIP COURSES:
ADVANCE FELLOWSHIP COURSE IN CHILDCARE
COMPREHENSIVE STUDY IN DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY
As Nelson rightly mentions: Paediatrics is concerned with
the health of infants, children & adolescents; their growth
& development; and their opportunity to achieve full potential
as adult. As physicians who assume a responsibility for children's
mental, physical & emotional progress from conception to maturity,
paediatrician's must be concerned with social & environmental
influences which have major impact on the health & well being
of the children & their families, as well as particular organ
systems & biologic vulnerable or disadvantaged in society
& thus their needs require special attention. Unfortunately
none of our institutes inculculate holistic perspective which
is must for any paediatrician. They are reduced into busy
prescribers. For Homoeopathic physician / paediatrician this
perspective is crucial for his evolution & efficient functioning.
For the comprehension of Homoeopathic paediatric portrait
(constitutional type) perspective helps him. It also enlarges
range & depth of materia medica keeping all these applied
aspects in the mind, we have evolved FELLOWSHIP programme.

Advance Fellowship Programme in HIV Disease.
TITLE: Spandan's advance fellowship
Programme in HIV Disease.
HIV disease is a complex sinister illness, which has deep
impact on various organs and systems.
The number of persons getting infected with HIV is alarming
and worth thinking about. In India the HIV epidemic is now
18 yrs old. It has emerged as one of the most serious problems
for the nation. At the same time therapeutic management of
HIV in modern medicine is deficient. Hence it is a challenging
task for Homoeopathic to evolve proper approach and rational
therapeutic guidelines to manage the illness. We have 10 years
of experience in managing the HIV disease. On that basis we
have evolved comprehensive guidelines for holistic management
of this illness.
Based on these clinical experience to help homeopathic physicians,
we have designed fellowship programme.
