Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Curriculum
As a student in the naturopathic physician program at National, you will study the same basic sciences as an M.D., but you will learn holistic and natural approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness.
Following your undergraduate studies, you will complete four years of training in clinical nutrition, acupuncture, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology, and counseling so that you can encourage your patients to make lifestyle changes in support of their personal health.
