Doctor of Natural Medicine
The Doctor of Natural Medicine or Doctor of Integrative Medicine or Traditional Naturopath are each equivalent to a PhD in credit hours. The DNM/IMD/TN each require clinical training or research in addition to the curriculum in place of a dissertation, as in the PhD. It can also be the initial curriculum for a Doctor of Naturopathy, if one chooses to proceed further in their graduate studies. It can provide the Doctor of Naturopathy candidate credentials to practice with this acquired knowledge and expertise while pursuing the more extensive training required in the ND program. Upon graduation the student can choose which title best serves them, as the requirements are the same for the DNM, IMD and the TN.
