2017 NMSA Annual Conference

The 2017 NMSA Annual Conference presents

The Future of Medicine

Moving Forward While Maintaining Our Roots

Join the NMSA community in discovery of new and emerging topics across naturopathic medicine and healthcare. In 2017, the NMSA will bring experts to the table on new and exciting topics that extend beyond standardized medical education. This year’s theme, The Future of Medicine, will highlight current knowledge, specialized skills, and innovative resources that will deepen our traditional roots while celebrating the role of Naturopathic Medicine on the cutting edge of healthcare. The conference will take place at the beautiful Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix on July 12 – 15, 2017. Stay tuned for registration, program and accommodation information – you will not want to miss this conference!

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
