Continuing Medical Education (CME) for Naturopathic Physicians (ND)

We’ve been offering Naturopathic CME for Naturopathic Doctors (ND) for over 25 years. Audio recordings of our events offer Naturopathic CE for the latest clinical uses of botanical medicine at minimal cost. NEW this year! Videos on Vimeo from 2020 events for CME–details below.


Distance Learning for Naturopathic Physicians

The content is completely evidence based. It’s empirical from the perspective of the people who are actually practicing plant medicine within their communities. It gives one an opportunity to collaborate with leaders in the field, share ideas, and come to wholly different conclusions about what is effective for certain pathologies and certain conditions in people.
