Naturopathic Physician is a Federally Recognized Occupation

Back in October 2009 the U.S. Department of Labor approved a new definition for naturopathic physicians. So the federal government, through its program O*NET, officially recognizes naturopathic medicine as one of 965 recognized occupations, and defines its key features using a standardized, measurable set of variables. The report details are here.
