There are a number of qualities that have been attributed to success as a physician and health care provider. When you look across the caregiving professions, while the expression of practice may differ, there is common ground in many of the core competencies needed as a successful practitioner. The naturopathic medical colleges promote these qualities in each of their graduates. But don’t take our word for it, read it in our graduates’ own words.
That which is not flexible, breaks.
Flexibility and resilience are the mantra for 2020 here at AANMC. One of the benefits of being a smaller professional community is our ability to implement changes quickly, assess what is working and adjust accordingly.
Addressing and resolving diversity, equity and inclusion issues on AANMC member campuses is vital to the short and long-term viability of our academic institutions and naturopathic-wide professional health. Systemic racism, and conscious and unconscious bias harm campus and healthcare communities and ultimately negatively impact the quality of patient care all doctors provide.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct health care profession that combines the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are trained as primary care providers who diagnose, treat and manage patients with acute and chronic conditions, while addressing disease and dysfunction at the level of body, mind and spirit.
A naturopathic medical degree from an accredited institution can be the springboard toward many rewarding career choices, including clinical, administrative, academic and entrepreneurial pathways. Whether practicing as a full-time or part-time ND, or in a non-clinical capacity, there are endless careers to explore with a naturopathic medical degree.
