Homeopathy has a very rich history here in the U.S. The oldest medical organization in the U.S. is the American Institute of Homeopathy, which predates the formation of the AMA by several years and is still active today. At its peak in the late 1800s, there were 22 homeopathic medical schools and over 100 homeopathic hospitals. The Albany Homeopathic Hospital once stood on North Pearl Street. It later moved to the current location of Albany Memorial Hospital, which was originally a homeopathic hospital, before it eventually became an allopathic hospital. My grandfather graduated as an M.D. from New York Homeopathic Medical College in 1928. By the mid-1930s, the school dropped its homeopathic designation and became New York Medical College, which now resides in Valhalla, N.Y.
