March 18, 2008 — National University of Health Sciences’ (NUHS) naturopathic medicine degree program was granted candidacy by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME) on March 9.
Candidacy is not accreditation and does not ensure eventual accreditation, but it is a status of affiliation with the council that indicates the naturopathic medicine program is progressing toward accreditation.
“This not only puts NUHS right on schedule for meeting important milestones in the accreditation process,” says Dr. Fraser Smith, assistant dean for naturopathic medicine at NUHS, “But will also allow our first N.D. graduates to sit for important licensure exams.”
