THE STUDY PROGRAMME IN NAPRAPATHY
The Study Programme in Naprapathy (naprapatprogrammet) is a specialist education within the field of manual medicine. After completing the four-year, full-time programme students receive a degree in naprapathy (naprapatexamen) as well as the right to the international title “DN – Doctor of Naprapathy”.
Accreditation Bodies and Professional Status
Since 1994 naprapaths in Sweden are licensed by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) and since 2006 “naprapath” is a protected occupational title. Naprapathy thereby constitutes a part of the Swedish health and medical care system.
In order for naprapaths in Sweden to be able to apply for a licence to practice from the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare, they have to complete a year of full-time internships, partly with a certified naprapath and partly with other registered health care providers.
