The Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians initiated a

credentialing process for naturopathic doctors in 2006. A separate and

independent board, the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (ABNO),

was established to oversee the process and work with the Board of Medical

Examiners to develop standards for credentials, including training

requirements, application process and board certification exams.

Naturopathic doctors who meet standards representative of advanced

experience and knowledge in cancer care are eligible for board certification

in Naturopathic Oncology. Qualifying doctors whose applications are

accepted must have completed a 2-year residency focused in naturopathic

oncology or have been in practice for at least 5 years with 5000 oncology

patient contact hours and submit cases for review by designated

examiners. All applicants must then pass a board certification exam in

order to be awarded the status of Fellow by the American Board of

Naturopathic Oncology.
