A few new things in 2017

  • No need to plan 3 trips this year… The NMSA Conference is co-locating with the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) and the World Naturopathic Federation (WNF) to expand perspectives, enhance networking, and encourage community building between students and doctors.
  • The NMSA Cup is back and better than ever! Watch each chapter prove their academic prowess to our entire naturopathic community. The stakes are high and alumni can now cheer teams from their alma mater on throughout the entire competition. Can the SCNM Chapter Team hold their title, or will another chapter unseat the 2016 Champions?

  • Exciting speakers from a variety of medical backgrounds
  • Free social events exclusively for NMSA Conference registrants
