Dr. Greenwood is a true Naturopathic Physician in Springfield, Missouri. As a true Naturopathic Doctor (ND), he received his degree from National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM, Now National University of Natural Medicine) the first of seven accredited naturopathic medical colleges in the US and Canada. An NCNM naturopathic doctor's education begins with two years in basic medical sciences (just like those taught in allopathic (MD) medical schools). The following two years emphasize clinical training in naturopathic therapeutics, diagnosing and treating patients with a wide variety of health conditions. This training prepares a true ND to be primary care provider.
Dr. Greenwood maintains his licensing as a Naturopathic Physician in Washington State, which has rigorous licensing requirements. (There is no licensing for naturopathic physicians in the state of Missouri.*) Dr. Greenwood practiced as a primary care physician and as an adjunct professor of NCNM in Washington state.

*Since there is no formal licensing in Missouri, some people obtain "ND degrees" from brief correspondence courses, short seminars, or from schools that give credit for life experience but which do not require rigorous clinical instruction that is demanded by states that license naturopathic physicians.
