Naturopathy Schools in Wisconsin with Course and Program Info

Research schools that are offering naturopathic medicine programs in the Wisconsin area. Read an overview of the closest school option, located in Illinois, to decide if the program is right for you.

Wisconson Naturopathy Schools

There are no accredited naturopathy schools in Wisconsin, nor does the state have specific licensing requirements for doctors of naturopathic medicine. Students in Wisconsin should consider following the guidelines put forth in other states, which includes the completion of an accredited four-year program that blends naturopathy and traditional medicine. In the 20 states, as well as D.C. and two U.S. territories that do regulate naturopathy licenses, graduates are also required to pass a national exam (NPLEX) for board certification in naturopathic medicine. While there are many schools that will help you on this path, only six are recognized by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education, with one located over the Wisconsin border in Lombard, Illinois.

  • National University of Health Science is the closest school to Wisconsin residents that offers a naturopathy program. This Lombard, Illinois, school covers courses in traditional medical practices, such as chiropractic medicine, in addition to newer techniques in acupuncture, naturopathy and more.

National University of Health Science

National University has been in operation since 1906. The Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine program has held continuous accreditation since its inception in 2006. The program is also accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medicine Education, which allows graduates to qualify for the NPLEX exams in naturopathy. The school also holds North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools accreditation.

Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine

The National University of Health Science's Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine program covers the same basic sciences as in a traditional medical degree. Advanced courses, however, emphasize natural therapies and treatment of the underlying causes of disease versus treatment of the symptoms. Students must already possess baccalaureate degrees from accredited institutions when applying to this program. Typical courses for a naturopathy degree program include human biochemistry, neuroanatomy, nutritional biochemistry, pharmacology, botanical medicine and homeopathy. All students in this program must participate in a clinical internship which takes a year to complete.
