Ontario Clinical (Practical) Examinations 

Applicants for registration to practise naturopathy in Ontario, who are not transferring their ND registration from another regulated Canadian jurisdiction, must first successfully complete the College's Ontario Clinical (Practical) Examinations in naturopathic manipulation, acupuncture, and physical examination/instrumentation. These clinical examinations assess an applicant's entry-level competencies to practise the profession safely, ethically and competently. 
The Ontario Clinical (Practical) Examinations Handbook (below and in our Resources Centre) provides detailed information about the examinations. Exam candidates should read through and keep a copy of this handbook for reference throughout the examinations process. Please e-mail us at exams@collegeofnaturopaths.on.ca  if you have questions about the Ontario Clinical (Practical) Examinations.
