Office of Naturopathic Doctor Registration: Continuing Professional Competency

Michael Reynolds, Division Wide Programs Manager

Pursuant to section 12-37.3-108, C.R.S., all active registered naturopathic doctors shall maintain and demonstrate continuing professional competency in order to renew, reinstate, or reactivate a registration to practice naturopathic medicine in the State of Colorado. Continuing professional competency requirements began July 1, 2015, and were created to help registrants assess their professional work, identify areas of growth and stay current with the profession. A detailed explanation of continuing professional competency can be accessed in the Continuing Professional Competency Manual found in the "Resources" section of this page.

Effective upon the completion of the first renewal of a registration, naturopathic doctors in Active status must demonstrate compliance in order to renew by one of the following methods:

  1. Participating in the CPD Program;
  2. Qualifying for Deemed Status; or 
  3. Receiving a military exemption.
