The Utah Association of Naturopathic Physicians (UANP) is the professional organization for Naturopathic Physicians licensed in the State of Utah. The Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing regulates licensure of naturopathic physicians (NDs). In the State of Utah, NDs are classified as primary care physicians. When compared to licensure requirements by other states, Utah law holds NDs to the highest educational standards in the US by being the only state that requires NDs to complete one year of post-medical education (internship after graduation from naturopathic school) before full licensure is granted. In addition to conventional medial training (drug prescribing, health screening such has Pap smears, blood screening, xrays and ultrasound evaluation, and minor office procedures), NDs are trained in acupuncture, botanical medicine, nutrition, spinal manipulation, and homeopathy.
