cbkent: "The Council on Naturopathic Medical Education had USOE recognition, but lost it. They
continue to accredit the four year residential programs."
John: And so did the prestigious AACSB (for business schools), the principal veterinary school accreditor, and others. Nothing whatever to do with their quality of work. CNME accreditation is still required by the 12 US states and 4 Canadian provinces that license naturopaths.
I heartily endorse the "nonwonderful" characterization of the ANMC.
