We Are The Florida Naturopathic Physicians Association

Founded in 1935, the Florida Naturopathic Physicians Association (FNPA) is the official statewide professional organization representing Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) in Florida. It serves as the active, unified voice for all those who support access to naturopathic medical care provided by licensed ND’s in the state of Florida. We believe a thriving naturopathic patient-centered medical profession will benefit Florida’s citizens. To this end, we invite professionals and citizens alike to join us in pursuit of our goals.

Mission Statement

  • To advance, promote, and protect the science of Naturopathic Medicine and the Naturopathic Medical profession, and to evaluate the standards of Naturopathic Medical knowledge and practice in the state of Florida.
  • To educate the public as to the merits of Naturopathic Medicine.
  • To create and maintain legislation that supports the qualified practice of Naturopathic Medicine.
  • To support and restrict licensure of Naturopathic Physicians to those who have graduated from programs of Naturopathic Medicine recognized by the Council of Naturopathic Medical Education and/or the federally recognized accrediting body for Naturopathic Medical education programs.

Join us at this exciting time as we work together to establish regulation for NDs in the state of Florida.
