CCNM offers residencies across Canada

You are here

CCNM is committed to providing high quality postgraduate residency experiences for a limited number of qualified graduates from Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME) accredited naturopathic medicine programs. The residencies consist of increasingly independent clinical experiences, research opportunities, structured mentoring, and advanced clinically focused curriculum components.


Number of positions: 1

This two-year residency program provides a working and learning culture and environment of open communication, respect, patience, and compassion. Mentorship will be provided to the resident in general naturopathic medical care within a busy multi-disciplinary clinic, with a focus on women’s health, pediatric health, and acute naturopathic management. Key features of the residency include:

  • The resident physician is both a learner and a provider of naturopathic medical care.
  • The resident ND is involved in caring for patients under the supervision of a more experienced physician, namely the clinic director.
  • As their training progresses, resident NDs are expected to gain competence and require less supervision, progressing from frequent case reviews and supervision to more periodic and less frequent case support.


Deadline for application is Monday, December 31, 2018. The residency application package (PDF) consists of three parts. The following is a calendar overview of the resident selection process.
