Continuing Education Requirements
Connecticut General Statutes licensed naturopathic physicians are required to participate in continuing education (CE) activities. Please note the following:
Number of Hours
A licensed naturopathic physician shall earn a minimum of 15 contact hours of qualifying continuing education during the 1 year period commencing on the first date of license renewal on and after October 1, 2009. One contact hour means a minimum of fifty minutes of continuing education activity.
Continuing education shall be directly related to the practice of naturopathy; and reflect the professional needs of the licensee in order to meet the health care needs of the public.
Qualifying continuing education activities include, but are not limited to, courses, including on-line courses, offered or approved by the Association of Accredited Naturopathic Medical Colleges, regionally accredited institutions of higher education or a state or local health department. The Department does not pre-approve CE offerings. It is incumbent on the practitioner and the provider to determine if the course meets the requirements.
Each licensee applying for license renewal will be asked to attest that the licensee satisfies the continuing education requirements. Certificates of completion should not be mailed to the Department at the time of license renewal unless a licensee is specifically directed to do so.
Renewal Application Fee $570
