Thank you for taking the time to visit the Association of Accredited Naturopathic Medical Colleges (AANMC) for resources to assist your students on their journey to becoming a naturopathic doctor (ND). We strive to make this process as user friendly as possible, but please feel free to contact us if there are additional resources you would like to see, or if you had trouble finding what you were looking for.
Are your students highly motivated, qualified, and excited by the possibilities natural medicine has to offer? Future ND candidates want to make a difference and by studying to be a naturopathic physician, they will be combining the best of natural therapies and evidence-based medical science. NDs practice primary care and address the causes of disease, restore deficient determining factors of health and always attempt to support the body’s ability to heal. They use therapies such as nutrition, botanical medicine, physical medicine and more.
Together, with your expertise as a pre-health advisor and our resources, we can help students who would be fulfilled in a career in naturopathic medicine navigate the journey to enter into their training.
We invite you to learn and share what it takes to become an ND – a rewarding career path offered at accredited naturopathic medical schools across North America.
Naturopathic medicine will appeal to those students who see the tide of poor health – rising incidence of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, dementia and mood disorders – and want to do something to impact the health of their community. It is a people-focused field that requires a lot of entry knowledge and skill. A naturopathic medicine career can be satisfying across many areas – remuneration, quality of life, flexibility and career satisfaction – that is what our alumni tell us.
Please join us in helping to define the future of health care by introducing promising young doctors to the field.
