Appropriate lab work required; general biology (science-major level): 2 semesters or 3 quarters. Must cover concepts in cellular biology and genetics. Appropriate lab work required. Individual courses in the biological sciences may count if the above competencies are met, i.e., zoology, microbiology, botany [...] unfortunately, there is currently a situation causing much confusion for lawmakers and patients. Some well-meaning individuals have attained the title naturopath through less than exemplary means and now call themselves 'traditional naturopaths' [...] they have not undergone rigorous study in the basic and clinical sciences, or completed a clinical internship [...] to qualify for a license, the applicant must pass the naturopathic physicians licensing examinations (NPLEX) which includes basic sciences, diagnostic and therapeutic subjects and clinical sciences";

WHILE centrally required within AANP naturopathy are supernatural articles of faith. Stating that the supernatural {naturopathy's vitalism, spiritism, teleology finalism, spiritual development and kind} is science-based and scientific, that naturopathy is a branch of medical science and a science -- to me -- is horsesh*t. His healthcare reform project is -- to me -- a project to unlimit the boundaries of science to allow for what cannot legitimately be scientifically-supported or -based. It's as simple as this: if you cannot reach the actual goal line -- evidence -- move it closer -- change the rules of the game -- so that the scientific is anything you want it to be {but then it's not the same; while naturopathy claims the game is unchanged, and it is the same}].

The clinical science examinations are taken following graduation after the 4th year of school. They include: clinical and physical diagnosis, laboratory diagnosis and diagnostic imaging, botanical medicine, pharmacology, nutrition, physical medicine, homeopathy, minor surgery, psychology and lifestyle counseling, and emergency medicine [...] applicants will apply to the NABNE to take the NPLEX Basic Science Exams [...] licensing boards need no longer be involved with the approval or administration process for the basic science exams [...] NPLEX will score the exams, NABNE will send score reports directly to the candidates, and will then send transcripts of the candidate's Basic Science and Clinical exam scores";
