Naturopathic Doctors must attend one of the 6 accredited Naturopathic Medical schools throughout the US and Canada. The first two years involve basic science courses, diagnostic work, and physical exams. The last two years focus on Naturopathic treatment modalities and patient care. Naturopathic Doctors are trained in a family practice clinic, are supervised by Naturopathic Doctors, and occasionally Chiropractors and conventional Medical Doctors.

Naturopathic Doctors must pass 2 sets of boards to become board certified doctors. The first set is before their third year and covers the basic sciences. The second set is following graduation. Currently 16 states  license Naturopathic Doctor and Minnesota Naturopaths have been licensed since 2008.
