Homeopathy is a medical approach fit to the principles that guide the Brazilian public health policy and agrees with the new paradigm in pharmaceutical education, with the focus on the human condition.Thence the importance of the teaching of homeopathy in pharmacy undergraduate courses. This study aimed to analyze the models for the teaching of homeopathy in three Institutions of Superior Education (IES) in the State of Goiás and to verify its reflection on the level of knowledge on homeopathy expressed by the students. The study programs of the IES were analyzed and questionnaires were applied to students who had already attended homeopathy courses. The results allowed to verify that mistaken ideas on homeopathy were mainly expressed by the students who learned homeopathy as a subtopic of another more general subject. This variability in the models of homeopathy teaching may lead to qualitative diversity in the homeopathic understanding of the pharmacy professionals in the State of Goiás.
