Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine Off Campus Housing

The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM), founded in 1978, is a naturopathic medical school located in the North York area of Toronto, Ontario. The college's formal legal name is the "Institute of Naturopathic Education and Research" (INER), and it is one of seven accredited schools of naturopathic medicine in North America, and one of only two in all of Canada.

Application for admission is done via a centralized system, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Centralized Application Service (NDCAS). The admission criteria is based on GPA, letters of reference, curriculum vitae (autobiographic sketch) and interview performance. While admission requirements do not entirely mirror those of most Ontario allopathic medical schools, in terms of MCAT and minimum GPA cut-off, the ND program remains one of the most rigorous and challenging programs available to health care professional hopefuls.

Once accepted to the program, students are expected to attend all lectures, tutorials and labs (average of 35 hours per week) as well as all clinic shifts. While patient exposure takes place as early as first year, the bulk of it happens in the upper years, which incorporate a minimum of 1,200 clinical hours under the supervision of a licensed Naturopathic Doctor. According to the Office of Academic Affairs, for a student to remain in "good standing", the cumulative GPA must exceed 3.0 (4.0 scale) in each year of study. The passing grade for each individual class (practical and theoretical) is 65%, but an overall, cumulative grade of 70% must be maintained each semester.
