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.
