Professional Education

A licensed naturopathic physician (ND) attends a four-year, graduate-level Naturopathic Medical school, as well as a required University undergraduate degree, and is educated in all of the same science programs as an Medical Doctor, but also studies natural approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. In addition to a standard medical curriculum, the naturopathic physician also studies botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, and various other modalities. A naturopathic physician takes rigorous professional board exams so that they may be licensed by a state/province or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician.
