Enhance your education

A naturopathic residency allows clinicians a mentored and supportive environment to achieve their professional goals. Naturopathic residencies give providers an opportunity to gain clinical experience and confidence from working under the guidance of experienced physicians. Although not required to practice in all states, a residency is a perfect way to take your medical knowledge and clinical experience into practice in a mentored environment and to learn other aspects of being a practicing doctor. Residencies are overseen by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME) who require strict guidelines for sponsoring sites. All sponsored residencies must adhere to the same guidelines to assure a beneficial program. Through SCNM sponsored residencies, you have the opportunity to work with and learn from highly skilled, seasoned physicians. Those residencies within the SCNM Medical Center and the Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine are given the opportunity to see a high volume of patient cases. Last year, SCNM’s residents saw more than 3,500 patient visits as part of the program.
