Curriculum


The curriculum follows a sequential course of study in which students continuously build upon a deepening foundation of biomedical and clinical sciences. Concurrently, students are integrating naturopathic philosophy, principles, and therapeutics into their medical knowledge. Students are admitted as a cohort and are expected to follow the curriculum as it is structured. 

At the completion of the program, students will have met the following requirements for graduation:

  • Demonstrated competency in the didactic and clinical portions of the program

  • Satisfactory completion of a thesis paper

The naturopathic program, including all graduation requirements, must be completed within seven (7) years of matriculation.
