Employment Prospects


Most naturopaths go into private or group practice. A few N.D.'s find positions in natural health clinics. Due to the small number of accredited doctoral programs, only a very small percentage of naturopaths become teachers. The federal government is encouraging research into the efficacy of alternative health care approaches.
