Improving Health in the Commonwealth

Improve Health in the Commonwealth

The Virginia Association of Naturopathic Physicians (VAANP), an affiliate of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), is the professional trade association for naturopathic doctors in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Our members are graduates of accredited four-year, graduate-level, in-residence naturopathic medical programs. While Virginia does not license naturopathic doctors at this time, all of our professional members maintain a license as a naturopathic doctor or naturopathic physician in at least one of the twenty-six jurisdictions, including the District of Columbia, that regulate naturopathic doctors. The VAANP is actively pursuing licensure of naturopathic doctors in Virginia.
