Ontario Clinical (Practical) Exams

If you are not seeking registration as a registered, practising ND in another regulated Canadian jurisdiction, you must complete the College’s Ontario Clinical (Practical) Examinations in naturopathic Manipulation, Acupuncture and Physical Examination/Instrumentation. These examinations assess your hands on, practical skills and ability to practise naturopathy safely, ethically and competently.

The Ontario Clinical (Practical) Examinations Handbook provides detailed information about the examinations, including testable content, study references and a detailed blueprint of each examination.
