Careers in Natural Medicine

While the majority of graduates from NCNM enter practice as sole proprietors, opportunities for careers in research, integrative practice, corporate wellness, academics, and other fields are increasing.

Professional Opportunities

The Professional Formation and Career Services Center manages an online database of professional opportunities where practitioners and graduating students can search for job openings, practices for sale, space to rent, and other professional resources.

Residency Program

Some graduates from the naturopathic program choose to complete a residency program that assists in the transition from student to practicing physician.

Practitioner Surveys

In summer 2004, the Curriculum Committee of National College of Natural Medicine, in cooperation with the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment, surveyed NCNM alumni. The purpose of the survey was to obtain alumni opinion regarding success of the College in meeting its educational goals as well as to obtain information on the financial success of alumni. Review an analysis of data from the completed surveys [pdf file].

The Association of Accredited Naturopathic Medical Colleges also published a survey of practicing naturopaths. Click here for a summary.
