Naturopathic physicians are trained as primary care practitioners at accredited naturopathic medical schools. Like conventional medical schools, these rigorous four-year doctoral programs provide a solid foundation in the basic medical sciences and in conventional diagnostic and treatment methods. Extensive coursework in naturopathic therapeutic approaches is combined with supervised, outpatient clinical training in comprehensive integrated health care. Naturopathic medical education is not available through online or correspondence courses. Learn more by browsing the sections below.
