Academic Information:
CCNM's ND program is a post-university professional program requiring a Bachelor's degree for admission. We provide an intensive four-year program that includes more than 1,200 hours of clinical experience and involves more than 3,000 hours of classroom training. Our program covers three major areas of study: biomedical sciences, clinical sciences and naturopathic therepeutics. CCNM is accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME), the North American accrediting agency for naturopathic colleges and programs recognized by the US Department of Education.
Basics Sciences:
The biomedical sciences segment of the curriculum provides an in-depth study of the human body through lectures and labs. Students take courses in anatomy (including gross anatomy, prosection, neuroanatomy, embryology and histology), physiology, biochemistry, immunology, clinical pathology, environmental and public health (including infectious diseases), pharmacology and pharmacognosy.
Clinical Training:
The clinical sciences segment of the curriculum thoroughly prepares students to educate patients and the public in health promotion and disease prevention. It also prepares them to diagnose the causes of a range of primary care conditions and to effectively help patients manage their conditions using a broad range of therapeutics. Laboratory and clinical demonstrations are utilized to foster the development of practical skills. Diagnostics courses include physical and clinical diagnosis, integrated clinical pathology and differential diagnosis and diagnostic imaging. A range of primary care issues are covered in courses ranging from maternal and newborn care to pediatrics. Primary care management is covered in the study of botanical medicine, homeopathy, emergency medicine, nutrition, physical medicine (including naturopathic, osseous and soft tissue manipulative therapy, physiotherapy, sports medicine, therapeutic exercise and hydrotherapy), psychological counseling, nature cure, acupuncture and Asian medicine and minor surgery.
