This is an interesting article (put out by the Association of Accredited Natevaluating the differences in the education of MDs and NDs. A lot of people don't know just how much training NDs have!
"When examining a naturopathic medical curriculum, especially in comparison with that of a conventional medical school, remember this important differentiating factor: all future NDs are in training to become primary care physicians. In other words, a naturopathic medicine program is by definition a specialization in primary care – a field of medicine in extreme shortage in the USA today."
