This program is a Doctorate. To be admitted, a student must have a Bachelor’s degree related to Science and Health, and a Master’s degree in Holistic, Alternative, or Natural Medicine or an equivalent degree recognized by a nationally recognized accreditation board.

Please Note


A Doctorate in Alternative Medicine is NOT equivalent or comparable to a Doctor of Medicine (MD) or a Doctor in Naturopathy (ND) or a Doctor in Integrative Medicine (IMD). Only Medical or Naturopathic Doctor University with residential education can issue MD or ND degrees. In addition, for Doctor in Integrative Medicine the ‘I-MD’ is a professional designation only granted to licensed doctor, nurse or practitioner.

The title of ‘Doctor’ or ‘Dr’ creates confusion in states and provinces, where the practice of naturopathy is regulated or where the designation ‘Doctor’ or ‘Dr’ is protected by professional boards or the government. In advertising, a practitioner should have a PhD Degree in order to professionally use the appellation ‘Doctor’ or ‘Dr’ and must state their level of education such as “John Smith, DNM, PhD, Doctorate in Natural Medicine”.
