Step up to the STAIRSM Integrative Residency Experience.
Integrative Therapeutics and the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians are proud to support hands-on knowledge that helps shape the future of naturopathic medicine. Since 2007, Integrative Therapeutics has funded two fully paid, truly unique residency experiences each year.
Naturopathic and integrative medicine practitioners are encouraged to apply to become a residency site to mentor the future of naturopathic medicine.
Upon graduation, naturopathic students are encouraged to apply for a chance to be the next STAIR Resident- all paid for by Integrative Therapeutics!

Are you interested in a real world residency experience?
The two most highly qualified naturopathic graduates will receive a scholarship to practice in one of the two sites awarded for an invaluable learning experience. Each resident will participate in the whole spectrum of clinic life, from patient care to the daily financial workings of the practice – a complete, well rounded, real-world experience.
