The Boucher Institute is accepting resumes on an ongoing basis for consideration as teaching opportunities arise.


Qualified applicants should hold an ND or MD degree, or a terminal degree in their area of expertise.

Instructional roles involve planning and delivering the naturopathic educational curriculum in accordance with the Boucher Institute student learning outcomes. Faculty members will model professional behaviour and provide informal feedback and formal evaluation to the student and appropriate administration in a timely manner.

Faculty members are committed to continuous student learning and demonstrate passion and skill in effective teaching/learning facilitation. They are committed to on-going assessment and evaluation of their teaching and are competent in working with diverse student populations. The faculty member demonstrates commitment to the vision, mission and values of the Institute and to their continued personal growth and professional development. Finally, they demonstrate and promote high ethical standards and academic honesty.

In addition the ideal candidate will be:

  • Self-motivated and have the ability to motivate others
  • Able to meet deadlines and balance multiple priorities
  • Able to work well with diverse student, faculty and professional groups within and outside the Boucher Institute
  • Able to communicate effectively; both verbally and in writing.


The Institute is looking for instructors for:

  • Biomedicine: willing to teach single lectures on an “as needed” basis in the disciplines of Biochemistry, Physiology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Embryology, and Lab Diagnosis.
  • Emergency Medicine
    • This course will enable students to assess any emergency situation and respond immediately as a professional first-responder in order to provide basic life support and pre-hospital/pre-ambulance care. Emergency medical skills are developed with a focus on the balance between confidence in established competencies and the recognition of limitations in personal knowledge and abilities. A similarly balanced perspective is cultivated with regard to non-emergency situations through the development of referral skills. The scope of practice, anticipated interventions, and training of other health-care professions is reviewed in the context of conditions and situations where referral to another professional is in the best interests of the patient.
  • Gynecology
    • Gynecology thoroughly examines women’s health to help students develop a broad perspective on how to best provide comprehensive health care for women in all stages of life. Because many factors affect the health and overall well-being of women, this course takes a holistic, woman-centered approach to common gynecological concerns. The course examines typical pathologies, allopathic and naturopathic care, as well as factors such as socioeconomic status and cultural distinctions that may play an important role in women’s health. Students are also trained to perform Women’s Health Exams using a woman-centered approach.
  • Manual Therapies
    • The first six weeks of the course will be a focus on Hydrotherapy: the use of water as a therapeutic modality within the scope of Naturopathic Medicine. Students will be introduced to constitutional hydrotherapy, infrared sauna treatments, sitz baths, wet sheet wraps, castor oil packs, and acute hydro treatments for home care of patients. This second 6 weeks of the course will introduce students to the area of Electro-therapeutics. Students will learn the basic electrical modalities used during hydrotherapy and therapeutic treatments, and understand the differences between them.


Applications for all teaching positions should include a cover letter detailing the courses that the applicant wishes to be considered for, as well as an up-to-date CV highlighting any teaching experience. These should be emailed directly to [email protected] by November 10 th , 2017.
