Scope of Practice (pdf)    
Current Membership    

The Oregon Board of Naturopathic Medicine (Board) is currently recruiting new Board members.  The Board is seeking both a public member and a Naturopathic Physician licensed in the State of Oregon.
The mission of the Oregon Board of Naturopathic Medicine is to regulate, through the Oregon Revised Statutes and Administrative Rules, the practices of naturopathic medicine in order to ensure protection of the public.  We promote excellence in the practice of naturopathic medicine by assuring quality education, regulating naturopathic practices, and fostering ongoing public outreach.  In this manner, the Board cultivates public trust and safety by ensuring the State of Oregon is served by naturopathic professionals providing the highest standards of care. 

To learn more about the Board, please visit: https://www.oregon.gov/OBNM/pages/index.aspx
There are seven members on the Board, five licensed Naturopathic Physicians and two public members.  The Board meets bi-monthly, the second Monday of all even months. Member responsibilities include, but are not limited to:  reviewing administrative investigations to determine if a licensed Naturopath committed a violation of an Oregon Administrative Rule or Oregon Revise Statute, monitor licensees on disciplinary probation, advise the Board staff on best practices, engage in rule making when appropriate, and communicate with the public and licensees on issues related to the practice of Naturopathic Medicine.
If you would like to apply to join the Board, please review the Governor’s instructions: https://www.oregon.gov/gov/admin/Pages/How_To_Apply.aspx

The attached application is due to the Executive Appointments Office on January 31, 2019 at 5pm.
The Governor and the Board are committed to ensuring that the Board represents the growing age, racial and gender diversity of the state. This is an amazing opportunity to pool our collective viewpoints, visions and hopes for Oregon—and all citizens are welcome and encouraged to serve.  You must be an Oregon resident and taxpayer to participate unless otherwise noted.
Please forward this message to members of your professional organizations and/or networks.  Please also provide my contact information to qualified/interested candidates who would like to discuss the position with me directly.
Thank you!
