Hi Board, I have a friend that is still looking for an affordable option for a Doctorate in Natural or Alternative Medicine. I posted a while ago for feedback about the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines that is quite affordable but the feedback from the board was negative as the school is not accredited in India, it seems that is the equivalent to a state approved or non accredited in the US as the school is not listed in the UGC web site. It seems that my friend found that Empresarial in Costa Rica is also offering a Doctorate in Natural medicine that is quite affordable (about 6K) and the school is listed by the UNESCO and listed as a University in Costa Rica. Would Empresarial be good enough to train a natural doctor without the fear of being tagged as a fake Dr because the unaccredited degree? I think the issue here is credibility, my friend doesn't want to get a degree that later a potential customer might use to sue him because the lack of credibility. In Canada, Natural medicine is mainly unregulated so even Indian Board might do the trick but my friend is afraid that later if regulated, the degree would not be acceptable to practice Natural medicine due to its lack of accreditation. Can we trust an Empresarial degree to be credible enough so people will not accuse you of misrepresentation or a degree mill holder? I agree that Empresarial is not prestigious but this is not for a corporate job but for self employment and mainly to give you the right to use in a business "John Doe PhD in Natural Medicine" without the risk of being accused of being a fake Dr.
