Supporting Naturopathic Medical Students Across North America

Our Mission

The Naturopathic Medical Student Association (NMSA) is an international, student-governed, non-profit organization established to support naturopathic medical students at accredited Naturopathic schools in the USA and Canada. 

We provide educational resources and increased access to information on how to succeed in our future careers as healthcare professionals. 

The NMSA acts as a unified, sustainable, ethical and professional voice for naturopathic physicians-in-training across North America. 

The main emphasis of the NMSA is to function as an advocate for naturopathic physicians-in-training and to create educational and community-building initiatives that prepare students with the tools, experiences, and connections necessary to become successful physicians.
