I cannot find words enough to thank Lou Klein for the profound effect his teaching has had on my skills and confidence. Before the HMC course, I used to take reams of copious notes to the point where I completely lost sight of the case, and would repertorise madly while my panic level rose. As a result of Lou’s approach to focussing on the disposition, and his exploration of remedy themes and families, my case-taking and analysis are far more effective, and my selection of remedies more confident. Lou’s insights into remedies have been invaluable in broadening my understanding of them, and providing me with a far wider range to draw from. His analysis of the direction of cure has helped me better evaluate my prescribing. Lou is one of the most generous teachers I have ever come across.
