Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine
National University of Health Sciences, the nation’s premier institution for complementary and alternative medical education, offers a doctor of naturopathic medicine program (ND), which will prepare you to practice as a licensed naturopathic physician. National University’s ND program provides you with a rigorous curriculum that blends thorough scientific foundation with comprehensive training in traditional naturopathic treatments.
As a student in the naturopathic physician program at National University, you will study the same basic sciences as an MD, but you will learn holistic and natural approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. You’ll study alongside students from other professional degree programs and thereby have the opportunity to share perspectives and experiences.
Unparalleled Career Preparation
You will spend a full year in the clinical internship component of your program. NUHS offers naturopathic clinical internship opportunities that allow students to complete a full-fledged naturopathic internship on our main campus. Our ND internship program is conducted in a framework appropriate to a university setting in our state, and provides experience in high quality naturopathic care. Not only that, you’ll spend your internship in our on-campus integrative medical clinic, learning how to collaborate with professionals from other medical specialties.
For entry to practice in the naturopathic profession, you will take rigorous professional board exams. Demonstrating proficiency through these exams is a necessary step to being licensed in any jurisdiction that regulates the practice of naturopathic medicine.
