The following lecture, presented in a required course on nonprescription products, is given to students who are
in the terminal year of a Bachelor of Science program. It is heavily laden with facts whose goal is to achieve
cognitive learning. However, it also attempts to influence the studentsí attitudes, in order to facilitate their
growth as caring professionals who can retain a firm scientific and ethical grounding in their practice. The topic is
one seldom covered in nonprescription product courses(1). As a basis for the specific discussion of
homeopathy, the lecturer makes use of two articles which discuss the subject(2,3).
