Your Questions Answered
Could you recommend helpful classes or literature?
Q:I am a high school senior this year and my future plans include state college for six years with the goal of a physical therapy license or physician assistant certification. Naturopathic Medical school is the destination after that. I have sent for and planned according to the outlined course requirements therein.
Could you recommend any other classes or literature you feel would be helpful prior to my enrollment in the naturopathic physician program?
A: Thanks for your inquiry. You sound like you're off to a smart and early start planning for your future. The academic path you’ve described, with either of the licenses/certifications you mention, should well prepare you for naturopathic doctor (ND) studies. The courses you take along the way will give you the basic science foundation you’ll need. I commend your early thirst for knowledge of the ND profession!
