What is a Naturopathic Physician?

Naturopathic physicians are licensed health care providers trained to provide primary care. A naturopathic physician’s techniques include both modern and traditional methods and incorporate the scientific and empirical with therapies ranging from the most fundamental (nutritional) to conventional mainstream treatments. Naturopathic physicians have a profound respect for the art of medicine, reverence for the wisdom of nature, and application of the latest scientific research, all of which are applied to promote optimal patient outcomes.

Education and Training

Naturopathic physicians undergo training that is similar in structure and scope to that of medical(allopathic) and osteopathic physicians. Naturopathic medical colleges are four-year graduate schools with rigorous admissions requirements comparable to other medical schools. The Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) degree is awarded after classroom, clinic and practical study.

Naturopathic physicians are trained in medical sciences including anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, pharmacology, cardiology, neurology, radiology, obstetrics, gynecology, embryology, pediatrics, psychology, pharmacology, minor surgery, dermatology and clinical and physical diagnosis.

The training also includes extensive study of naturopathic philosophy and therapeutics including therapeutic nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, ayurvedic medicine, hydrotherapy, manipulative therapy, and counseling. Because coursework in natural therapeutics is added to a standard medical curriculum, naturopathic doctors often receive significantly more hours of classroom education in these areas than the graduates of many leading medical schools, including Yale, Stanford, and Johns Hopkins.
Washington’s laws require graduates of naturopathic medical schools to pass rigorous board examinations in order to qualify for licensure.
