One of the core tenets of naturopathic medicine is Docere, Doctor as Teacher. At Today Integrative Health and Wellness, we are very committed to our roles as teachers to our patients, the public, other healthcare professionals, and future naturopathic doctors. Each of the naturopathic physicians at Today has her own teaching projects outside of the clinic. Read more about our teaching projects here!
We are excited to announce that for the first time this coming fall, Today Integrative Health and Wellness will be taking on a first-year naturopathic medical resident. Each physician at Today will provide mentorship, teaching, and clinical pearls from their particular fields of expertise for the resident. The residency program is invaluable for burgeoning naturopathic doctors and helps them develop their own practice style, become strong diagnosticians, and succeed in the profession.
