AANMC Residency Cycle Timeline

In light of the stresses COVID-19 has placed on academic calendars and clinical education, below is the revised timeline for the 2020-2021 Naturopathic Residency Application Cycle.

The 2020 AANMC Residency Application Cycle opened November 15th. You can view participating residency sites in the AANMC application portal.

As you start looking at residency sites and put together your application, consider the following to build your resume:

  • Network and shadow with residency site directors and other professionals
  • Look for preceptorship opportunities during the holidays
  • Schedule a meeting with your school’s residency director or contact residency@aanmc.org to speak with a residency director at one of the supervising schools

Do you want to work at a clinic that doesn’t currently offer a CNME approved residency? Create your own experience! Email residency@aanmc.org to find out more.
