Education

After completing a pre-med degree, naturopathic medical students attend a four-year, accredited naturopathic medical school. The curriculum includes:

    * basic, medical, and clinical sciences
    * interpretation of lab tests (blood, radiology, etc.)
    * naturopathic therapeutics such as clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, hydrotherapy and lifestyle counseling
    * clinical internship

Upon graduation they must pass 2 sets of international board exams to obtain a license to practice naturopathic medicine. The extensive training develops unique skills making Naturopathic doctors knowledgeable advocates who can help patients make informed choices about their health.
