What Is a Naturopathic Doctor (ND)?

Naturopathic Medicine is a four-year professional College program which includes the medical science and health sciences courses common to a medical education, with the added benefit of learning botanical medicine, physical medicine, hydrotherapy, homoeopathy, counselling, acupuncture and clinical nutrition as treatment options.

During their final year at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ontario, students intern for one year in Naturopathic Clinics under the supervison of a Naturopathic Doctor registered with the Ontario College of Naturopaths. Following that internship, the graduate can be registered to practice in a Province as a Registered Health-Care Professional, entitled to use the professional ND designation.
