The American Naturopathic Medical Accreditation Board (ANMAB) has provided to the International Quantum University for Integrative Medicine (IQUIM) a private accreditation that is not recognized by the United States Secretary of Education. However, accreditation for an institution of learning represents a “validation” that the school programs have been thoroughly investigated and found worthy of recognition. This investigation is conducted by a qualified group of professionals familiar with the naturopathic programs offered. Students and institutions of learning have come to rely on decisions from ANMAB as a reliable source for determining quality in education.
