residency opportunities. To qualify as an applicant for the CNME

has been accredited, or has been granted accreditation status, by
the Council for Naturopathic Medical Education.
- Successful completion of the NPLEX I & II and the ability
to secure a license or its equivalent to practice naturopathic
medicine for the appropriate licensing jurisdiction.
- Applicants must pass appropriate add-on boards for the state
they intend to be licensed in. Failure to pass all board
examinations, as required by each state for licensure will
effectively disqualify applicants from consideration for this
