The Board of Physicians published a report in October of 2013, based on the proceedings of the work group. The Board provided a strong argument for licensure of naturopathic doctors in the state of Maryland under and independent Board of Naturopathic Medicine. These findings were embraced by the MDANP, and they provide further momentum for our legislative activity in 2014!

MDANP LEGISLATIVE UPDATE
SUMMER STUDY 2013 & BOARD OF PHYSICIANS REPORTThe Maryland Association of Naturopathic Physicians, in cooperation with the Maryland Board of Physicians, was involved in a Summer Study to review the issue of how and under what conditions naturopathic doctors will be licensed in Maryland.
