DOCTOR OF Naturopathic Medicine National University of Natural Medicine
Licensed naturopathic physicians earn a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) degree, which includes over 4,100 hours of total instruction with 1,200 hours of hands-on clinical training. N.D. degree programs must meet the Council's standards on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME), a governing body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
