UPDATE: REGARDING RESIDENTIAL SCHOOLS OFFERING NATUROPATHIC PROGRAMS

 

American Naturopathic Medical Association (ANMA) has received a substantial number of complaints from students enrolled in naturopathic programs taught at current residential schools.

To date ANMA has offered no comments regarding these complaints. However, due to the number of complaint letters received, and the serious allegations contained therein ANMA believes not speaking out, could have an adverse effect on future students attending these schools.

THEREFORE, IF YOU ARE A NEW STUDENT CONSIDERING A RESIDENTIAL NATUROPATHIC PROGRAM, ANMA RECOMMENDS THE FOLLOWING:

DO NOT CONSIDER ATTENDING

  • NATIONAL COLLEGE of NATURAL MEDICINE (NCNM)- PORTLAND, OR

  • FURTHER, ANMA RECOMMENDS TO THE CURRENT NCNM ACCREDITING AGENCY that they suspend approval of the Naturopathic program at NCNM until a complete review is conducted.

 

NOTICE:
If you have a complaint about any residential school offering the naturopathic degree program you have attended, or are currently attending, email the complaint to – admin@anma.org. All correspondence is strictly confidential.

When considering a school you should consider the length of time in operation, the success of their graduates and approval from the State or an Accreditation Board. The ANMA suggests you visit the American Naturopathic Medical Accreditation Board -www.anmab.org- for schools that have been granted Accreditation. ANMA knows these Accredited programs will gain the knowledge needed to be a successful. Some Accreditation Boards are created by the owners of schools for the purpose of promoting their programs. The ANMAB is not affiliated with any schools. 

 

NOTICE:
If you have a complaint about any residential school offering the naturopathic degree program you have attended, or are currently attending, email the complaint to – admin@anma.org. All correspondence is strictly confidential.

Naturopathic Facts/History

 

Caution Naturopathic Medical Education
Let's examine the misguided rhetoric written about accredited four year resident Naturopathic Medical schools teaching surgery, drugs and pretending to produce primary care physicians.

New Hampshire Government Cavalier Response
In the following letter the deputy attorney general is responding to the fraudulent licensing. He states he is speaking on behalf of the governor. ANMA was not aware of those individuals seeking licensure until after they were already granted licenses. It appears New Hampshire is not willing to license credible and knowledgeable individuals from correspondent schools, but would rather license individuals pretending to be from four year resident schools.

NCNM Student Remarks

Letters from students who attended National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM)

NCNM Student Report, June 1992
The following is a NCNM student survey report produced in June of 1992 shortly after a company by the name of Sorenson had revealed their findings and recommendations to National college. ANMA received the report from the Oregon Office of Educational Policy and Planning as part of a Freedom of Information request. This report was produced by a substantial percentage of the National College student body shortly after National College of Naturopathic Medicine was accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education

Licensing Vs. Certification
A license is a permission to do something that otherwise is forbidden. In most cases, a license is required or mandatory for engaging in that activity. For instance, a drivers license is considered mandatory to drive a car on the public roads. An exception is that a house may be built by someone who is not a licensed contractor.

Naturopathic Legislation

 

Naturopathic Legislation

For over three decades, we have issued many critical legislative alerts to the Naturopathic community. ANMA’s tremendous success in winning legislative support over the years is well known to many throughout the industry, and with your support, ANMA will continue to do so. It is urgent that you stay involved. If you have not already done so, now is the time for you to get acquainted with your representative(s). Your representative will be far more attentive to the way he or she cast their vote, if they know your concerns. 

We recommend you become familiar with your representative telephone number, legislative address, and e-mail address. Be ready for quick action as this is imperative at crucial times.
