International Bridge Delivery
CCNM offers the first-ever naturopathic medicine bridge delivery for international medical graduates (IMGs). The IMG bridge delivery enables foreign-trained medical doctors living in Canada to further their health care careers as naturopathic doctors. Graduates receive the Doctor of Naturopathy degree.
The six-term curriculum incorporates all of the competencies of the four-year naturopathic medical program and acknowledges previous medical education and experience. Required courses are compressed into a 24-month schedule.
