This full-time four year program includes approximately 4,800 hours of class and preceptor time and including approximately 1,200 hours of clinical training, which culminates in the professional Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine designation.
While we offer students the highest standard of education, we also strive to preserve a community that is founded on the principles of inclusion, integrity, safety, respect, academic freedom, self-responsibility, innovation and sustainability. In short, we strive to ensure that each member feels heard, valued and supported on their journey of self discovery and academic exploration.
Clinical and Academic Mentorship
At BINM we believe mentorship is the key to successful learning. Faculty and student mentors help our students reach their learning potential by guiding and encouraging them to excel and grow. Through mentorship, students gain insight into new skills and knowledge through example and support.
BINM does not offer any electives. We have carefully planned our curriculum to ensure every graduate is equally strong in all current standard naturopathic modalities: botanical medicine, homeopathic medicine, nutrition, physical medicine, psychology and counselling and traditional Asian medicine. In addition to learning all six modalities, we offer sufficient classroom and clinic practice hours in traditional Asian medicine so graduates are eligible to practice acupuncture upon completion of the program.
