Recent Graduates

NDO Graduate Assistance Program

The OAND Graduate Assistance Program (GAP) has been initiated to fill the GAP between being a student of naturopathic medicine and becoming a naturopathic doctor.

To assist you through these first tumultuous months of obtaining liability insurance, becoming a registered ND and establishing your practice, the OAND is offering you membership from October 1st until December 31st of the following year which is 3 months of free membership where you are given the title of complimentary recent grad. During the renewal process all recent grads will receive information about joining the OAND at the subsidized Active 1st year practitioner rate. You will begin the cycle with all other professional members at that time. During the months of October, November and December, you will be able to access the full benefits of membership (see membership policy for restrictions while your membership is “pending”).

We look forward to working on your behalf to advance the profession and champion your success!

Student Membership

The OAND offers a unique membership opportunity for students attending a recognized college of naturopathic medicine. Students from naturopathic colleges across North America are welcomed to join the OAND. Please contact student services at CCNM for more information and to join as a member.
