Continuing your medical career in Canada
If you are an internationally trained medical professional, you have significant training that is valuable to the Canadian health care system and to the health of Canadians.
The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) offers bridge delivery of its naturopathic medical program, developed specifically for international medical graduates (IMGs) as an opportunity to further their health care careers in Canada. Required courses are organized into a compressed period of 24 months. The six-term curriculum incorporates all of the competencies of the four-year naturopathic medical program, acknowledges previous medical experience and education, while providing additional supports to address the unique needs inherent to an IMG cohort. Graduates receive the naturopathic doctor (ND) designation.
Many foreign trained medical doctors feel that the nature of a naturopathic doctor’s practice is much closer to their experience as a medical doctor. Modalities associated with naturopathic medicine are used world-wide: clinical nutrition; lifestyle management; traditional Asian medicine and acupuncture; botanical (herbal) medicine; physical medicine, and homeopathy are used the world over and are delivered at CCNM.
CCNM's bridge delivery for IMGs will begin on May 1, 2017. The priority application date is December 2, 2016. Apply now for the next intake (PDF).
