Thinking of a career in healthcare?  Thinking of becoming a doctor?

Are you interested in what makes a person healthy?

Are you interested in getting to the root cause of illness?  Treating the illness rather than the symptoms?

Are you interested in how to help a person achieve wellness and improve their health?

Are you interested in primary care, family medicine, and integrative or functional medicine?  Then you might be interested in naturopathic medicine and becoming a naturopathic physician.  If so, you can learn more about this growing practice of medicine at The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
