About Dr. Joseph Boucher, ND
Dr. Joseph “Joe” Boucher, ND, was a well-loved naturopathic doctor who lived and practiced in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. He taught and served for years as President and Secretary of National University of Naturopathic Medicine (NUHM) Board of Trustees. Dr. Boucher, ND, served as President of the Association of Naturopathic Physicians of BC and was Secretary for many years. He was a paragon of holistic health and fitness, blending psychology with natural medicines and exercise. While Joe did not live to see this institute’s inception, his example is one we hope our students aspire to uphold.

Team Approach to Your Health Care
 
We educate future naturopathic doctors. Under the supervision of licensed naturopathic physicians, our clinic interns provide an unparalleled standard of care for our patients.

After a thorough assessment, naturopathic treatments are selected using a holistic approach based on the needs of each patient.
Scope of Practice
Naturopathic doctors in British Columbia:
• Have prescribing authority
• Are licensed to perform minor surgery
• Are trained in medical assessment and diagnosis
• Have similar legal responsibilities as a conventional medical doctor
• Complete a pre-medical bachelor’s degree followed by four years of naturopathic medical education
In BC, naturopathic doctors are authorized to prescribe drugs (with the appropriate certification) and perform minor surgeries that do not involve anesthesia or respiratory assistance.
Regulation
In British Columbia, naturopathic doctors are regulated, as primary health care providers. The College of Naturopathic Physicians of BC regulates naturopathic doctors, and oversees standards of practice.
