Membership of the GCRN is confined to those who had undertaken full-time training in Naturopathy, including graduates of the four year full-time course at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London, and graduates of accredited post-graduate courses in Naturopathic Medicine. Applications are also considered from practitioners who have completed full-time training overseas at colleges or courses in countries where their training is officially approved, and have obtained some years experience in professional practice. In addition, the Registration Committee is able to consider, and in some suitable cases accept, applications from practitioners whose qualifications may be different from those outlined above, so long as the practitioner meets the minimum levels of naturopathic competence described here.
It is important to remember that the GCRN is a British Register. Registration is confined to those practitioners trained and working in the UK, or trained overseas but resident in the UK. Practitioners trained and working overseas are not normally considered for registration.
