We are excited to announce that Keonie Moore and the ReMed team will be the first well-deserving caretakers of the ANS Seed Fund Internship!

The Australian Naturopathic Seed Fund (Seed Fund) is an expansion of the ANS vision. There is a need for more mentoring, internships, residencies and supervision opportunities for next generation Naturopaths. In answer to this need, the Seed Fund is a ground-breaking grassroots initiative to establish and fund new internship programs in a clinical setting in Australia.

The ANS seeded the fund by dedicating 15% of our event sponsorship from the ANS 2018 to the internship. Our vision is to offer this opportunity to all clinics Australia-wide, but first we had to understand what the ANS Seed Fund needs to grow and are therefore rolling out an initial prototype to support one subsidised intern for one year.

We released this offer to a small group of leading naturopaths to see who could provide a supportive environment for an intern. There were many strong applications and it was a tough decision, but Keonie’s clinic stood out as the best setting to undertake this internship.

We’re confident that Keonie and the ReMed team will offer an experienced, professional and diverse opportunity for a new naturopathic graduate to refine their clinical skills.

Potential interns need to apply for the position directly with ReMed via their website.

We're so proud to have made this happen! And it’s thanks to all of YOU who supported the ANS 2018.

Grow together

The Seed Fund is a community driven initiative aimed at growing and strengthening the Australian naturopathic profession from within. Together, we are reinvesting our knowledge, experiences, time and skills into next generation Naturopaths to help foster, nurture and nourish their love for Naturopathy and offer them leadership and guidance in order to excel.

Excellence

Our aim is for interns to experience the best of their profession. We believe there are many Elders and Practitioners with amazing skills and knowledge to hand on. The Seed Fund aims to provide quality internship opportunities that capture the nuances and needs specific to the naturopathic profession, best met by learning from within the naturopathic profession.

Lead

The Seed Fund is all about us, as Naturopaths, growing ourselves, leading ourselves and teaching ourselves. We are the torchbearers of our own solution toward a united, strong and skilled profession.

Upskilling

Through providing quality internship opportunities in a naturopathic clinical setting, the Seed Fund aims to increase the competence, confidence and skill of new practitioners. We hope to grow new Naturopaths who conduct their practice with satisfaction, pride and passion. We are growing our family.
