The Boucher Institute is committed to attracting and keeping well qualified faculty that are both experts in their field and skilled educators.
Health sciences and professional development courses are taught by instructors with a terminal degree in their subject area (i.e., PhD, ND or other fully-qualified health-care professional such as MD, DC, PT, RMT etc.).
Naturopathic Therapeutic Modalities, Diagnosis and Assessment and Clinical Science courses are taught by naturopathic physicians or other fully qualified health-care professionals (e.g., MD, DC, PT, RMT etc.). Clinical expertise qualifies these professionals to present and demonstrate the specific knowledge and skills required in these courses of instruction.
Clinical Practice and Integration courses are taught exclusively by licensed, practicing naturopathic physicians. The academic philosophy as evidenced by the Boucher Institute's curriculum design strives to incorporate principles of both proven conventional academic wisdom and a mentorship program.
Our commitment to small class sizes - student to teacher ratio 3:1 - allows for maximum flexibility in incorporating various educational methodologies, including hands-on situational learning.
