National University of Health Science
In operation since 1906, National University was granted accreditation candidacy in 2008 by the Council on Naturopathic Medicine Education, which allows graduate to qualify for the NPLEX exams in naturopathy. The school also holds North Central Association of Colleges and 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, with higher GPAs being given greater precedence. Typical Courses for a naturopathy degree program include human biochemistry, neuroanatomy, nutritional biochemistry, pharmacology, botanical medicine and homeopathy.
