Naturopathic Training

Naturopathic Doctors are trained as primary care practitioners at naturopathic medical schools fully accredited by the US Department of Education. Like conventional medical schools, these four-year, graduate level, in-residence naturopathic medical programs provide a solid foundation in the basic medical sciences and in conventional diagnostic and treatment methods. Extensive coursework in naturopathic therapeutics is combined with supervised, outpatient clinical training in comprehensive integrated health care.
