June 2012 – Finding a Calling – Specializing as an ND

While all naturopathic doctors (NDs) receive training as general practitioners, many NDs do find themselves drawn to certain areas of expertise once actively practicing. Oncology, pediatrics, women’s health, infectious diseases — these and more are all specialties on which NDs can focus, providing expert and often much-needed care to their patients.
