Toronto, Canada, January 19, 2023 – International collaboration highlights reach and depth of naturopathic education around the world.
The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) and the National Centre for Naturopathic Medicine at Southern Cross University (SCU), Australia have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that enables discussions regarding potential high-level areas of collaboration which may include research collaborations, academic exchanges of faculty and students, joint international projects, Masters and PhD pathways, interprofessional opportunities, continuing education and professional development.
“The global strategic partnership between the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and Southern Cross University will allow for future growth and development opportunities,” says Dr. Rahim Karim, President and CEO of CCNM.
“CCNM is playing a key role in naturopathic education, research and clinical services as it continues to make a global impact.
“The Australian and Canadian naturopathic professions have been global leaders in advancing naturopathic research and education, and the two countries share a common commitment to universal health care, equity and diversity, not to mention having some of the highest public use and support of naturopathic medicine globally. These commonalities are a strong foundation for collaboration between our two institutions, and I can’t wait to see what this new relationship can bring,” added Professor Jon Wardle (PhD), Foundation Director of National Centre of Naturopathic Medicine at Southern Cross University.
