On behalf of AANMC and the naturopathic medical programs it represents, we are reaching out to you regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. AANMC recognizes that this is an extraordinary time for many, and that you may have questions or extenuating circumstances as a result of this illness and the international response. Our naturopathic programs would like to reassure you that coursework during this time can qualify as “special circumstances beyond your control.” Students wishing to apply to the coming fall term or for future intakes, please rest assured, accredited naturopathic medical programs will continue, will support you in meeting your healthcare career goals, and we will get to the other side of this together.
Please note the following now applies:
- Acceptance of online and/or distance learning prerequisites: All ND programs will accept Spring 2020 prerequisites that are delivered via online or distance learning from a regionally accredited institution.
- Courses taken as Pass/No Pass: All ND programs will review and give consideration to Spring 2020 prerequisites that are graded Pass/No Pass.
- In-person Interviews. Interviews may now be conducted via video-conference technology or other acceptable means. AANMC strongly recommends that interviews be conducted virtually until such time that social distancing restrictions are lifted.
Please reach out to the ND admissions offices for additional guidance on starting or completing an application. They are all working during this time to continue the legacy naturopathic medical students have to offer. Contact information the ND schools can be found here.
