In the winter of 2015 BINM sent a survey alumni with at least one year’s employment experience to gather data on licensure rates, career satisfaction, income, income satisfaction, practice ownership, practice setting and location, and patient contact hours. For the most part the survey results were extremely positive and reflect a high level of job satisfaction in the field of Naturopathic Medicine. The full survey results can be found here.

Complete the alumni survey: As alumni, you are leaders in the field of naturopathic medicine. For patients, students and the general public you represent a valuable resource with a wealth of experience in health care and insight into areas of opportunity and growth.
Though naturopathic medicine has been a regulated profession in BC. for 75 years, there remains a lack of solid information on the profession with respect to opportunities for employment, income, the transition from student to professional and more. Every three years we put together an alumni survey that we send out to all Boucher graduates. Your feedback will help potential students make informed decisions when it comes to evaluating the profession.
