Expert Reviewer

Minimum Qualification for Expert Reviewer for the Naturopathic Medicine Committee

The Naturopathic Medicine Committee (Committee) is recruiting qualified naturopathic doctors to prepare written opinions and possibly testify at administrative hearings as an Expert Reviewer.

The Committee does not pay its Expert Reviewers and does not reimburse costs associated with travel in cases of mandatory attendance at an administrative hearing. Review of a complaint does not require the personal attendance of the Expert Reviewer at the Committee. A copy will be made of a complaint, the copy redacted, and then faxed or mailed to the Expert Reviewer for a short, written opinion. The Committee will use that opinion in determining if further investigation is warranted.

If you wish to provide this service to your community and be considered an Expert Reviewer, please verify you meet the following criteria:

  • A current and active California license as a Naturopathic Doctor.
  • Five (5) or more years combined experience as a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in the State of California, licensed Naturopathic Physician in another state, or practicing naturopath in California prior to January 1, 2005 (first date of licensure in California) having already completed the educational and board examination requirements for licensure in California.
  • No prior or current charges or discipline against any health related license in California or any other state of licensure.
  • No criminal convictions, including any that were expunged or dismissed.

If you qualify, you may apply by completing and signing the "Application for Expert Reviewer". Send the completed application and a resume to:
