It Is A Great Time To Be An Australian Naturopath
2016 is a perfect time for any Australian school leaver to embark on a career in Naturopathic Medicine. Over the past decade researchers have clearly vindicated the position of naturopaths as leaders in health. Today there is an academic career in Australia for Naturopaths who want to move into mainstream areas of medicine such as Psychiatry, Psychology, Epidemiology, Lifestyle Medicine etc. Forty years ago this was impossible, today it is common, and the future for Australian Naturopaths in clinical practice is the same as it is for all other health practitioners – evidence based medicine led by researchers. Naturopaths in Australia should be registered doctors as they are in 17 states of America and in Canada.
