The process of becoming a Fellow to the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (FABNO) is available to all Licensed Naturopathic Doctors interested in this area of medicine and who wish to obtain additional training in Oncology for Naturopathic Doctors. On the website [www.oncanp.org] you will find the information for becoming an FABNO credentialed Naturopathic Doctor.
Becoming board certified in Naturopathic Oncology requires all applicants to meet the standards for advanced training and expertise as set by the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (ABNO). This specialty is meant only for those who focus a majority of their practice on oncology. In other words, those who have at least 65% of their practice made up of oncology patients. In order to qualify for this portion you must first be a member with the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians (OncANP), and then fulfill the ABNO requirements to apply for and pass an exam. This exam process happens every 18 months. Naturopathic Doctors who complete a two-year oncology residency program or who are published in naturopathic oncology research also are eligible to apply.
