The Naturopathic Medicine program at National University achieved another milestone this year, earning re-accreditation for a six-year period from the Council on Naturopathic Medicine Education (CNME)–the longest period of accreditation the program has ever received.

CNME, the national accrediting agency for programs leading to the Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND), positively noted National University’s ND program’s emphasis on naturopathic principles and engaged faculty. CNME also highlighted National University’s unique interdisciplinary environment and its Learning Resource Center among its strengths.

“National University is proud to receive this level of accreditation and we are looking forward to continually improving the ND program,” said Randy Swenson, DC, MHPE, Vice President for Academic Services.

As in previous years, the university continues to work with CNME to improve other aspects of the program in order to provide students with the best education possible.

“Our insight into how to deliver the best clinical education has grown and it is an exciting time to be an intern,” said Smith. “We are on the threshold of new growth and many new achievements in teaching, patient care, scholarship and research in the next 10 years.”
