No Better Place to Become a Naturopathic Doctor!

We offer an outstanding educational experience in the perfect location. Beautiful British Columbia is known for its stunning natural beauty – with towering mountains, parks, beaches and more. The academic curriculum and clinical experience at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine (BINM) are designed to support the extensive scope of practice BC Naturopathic Doctors enjoy as primary health-care providers, including:

Clinical and laboratory diagnosis

Your BINM experience: Connected, intentional learning.

Recognized for small-class sizes (average of 30 students per cohort), mentorship-based learning, and an enriching cohort model, the BINM program is designed to offer maximum interaction with professors, peers and supervisors. Cohort models create better doctors. The Boucher experience fosters creativity, builds leadership skills, and encourages greater academic progress.

  • The cohort structure delivers an active, interactive, and dynamic setting for students to grow their knowledge and skills.
  • As students study together, they develop relationships —learning that transcends course material to life skill training. The Boucher cohort program more effectively trains students in the on-the-job skills they need to succeed as Naturopathic Doctors.

Become part of a vibrant campus life.

While we offer students the highest standard of education, we also strive to create a community that is safe, respectful, and grounded in integrity. Our policies and values support academic freedom, inspire and promote self-responsibility, strive for innovation, and support sustainability. BINM is a community that believes every member should feel heard, valued and supported on their journey of self-discovery and academic excellence.

DrLongHeadshotI am a BINM Graduate. I am a NATUROPATHIC DOCTOR.

“My experience was defined by my classmates. Over four years we experienced every range of emotion, from pure bliss to total defeat. But we did it together, as a group. And that shapes you. We entered as wide eyed and eager students, and transformed into professionals ready to tackle the rigors of the real world.”
Dr. Michael Long, ND.  Optimum Integrative Health Centre, Fergus, Ontario
