Medicine Clinical and Academic Mentorship
Mentorship is key to successful learning. Our cohort-model of learning ensures small class sizes and honors the value of interpersonal relationships during the learning process. Through mentorship, students gain insight into new skills and knowledge through example and support.
Faculty, staff and student interaction is encouraged to help maintain communications throughout the Boucher Community. Faculty/staff and student contact is encouraged to provide role models for students; faculty members are expected to be available to students at regular hours for consultation regarding classroom material.
CCNM-Boucher Campus’ curriculum is designed to be an immersive, comprehensive experience of the naturopathic profession. Our modalities include botanical medicine, homeopathic medicine, nutrition, physical medicine, psychology and counselling and traditional Asian medicine. In addition to learning all six modalities, we offer classroom and clinic practice hours in traditional Asian medicine so graduates are eligible to practice acupuncture upon completion of the program.
Clinical training provides clinic interns with the opportunity to learn and develop the skill, knowledge, and attitude required to become proficient and effective Naturopathic Physicians. This includes integration and application of core principles, clinical problem solving and diagnostic skills, as well as expertise in ethical patient care and use of core modalities. Clinic interns observe, support, and manage patient care, giving them the opportunity to expand their knowledge and experience under the guidance of professional clinical faculty.
