ACCREDITED NATUROPATHIC SCHOOLS OVERVIEW
Applicants for licensure are required to have graduated from an accredited school of naturopathic medicine. The Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME) accredits four-year, campus based doctoral programs in naturopathic medicine that qualify graduates for licensure in the U.S and Canada. CNME does not accredit online naturopathic programs, and these programs do not qualify individuals for licensure. Accreditation ensures schools are providing a standards-based education that combines traditional natural health knowlege with modern medical training. Schools are required to meet certain standards before being accredited and must be reaccredited at least every seven years. The complete list of Accredited naturopathic schools can be found under the Resources tab on the above menu bar. More information regarding the CNME accreditation process may be found on https://cnme.org
