Rockwell is a distance-learning provider for various types of holistic medicine.

We currently do not have a campus, but we are considering opening one where students and graduates can gather for yearly clinicals and local residents can attend classes and workshops. 

What do Rockwell Grads Do?

Each program has its own page and fact sheet. Please read through the program FAQ for information on our programs, board certification, accreditation, and tuition. 

Please read the general FAQ here, as well as the individual program FAQ for your doctorate of interest. Once you've familiarized yourself with that information, and asked any questions you have in advance, we can then encourage you to apply. 

In theory, anyone can learn and apply the principles we teach, but we do have a screening process to make sure we're a good fit for your unique needs.

You can read all about accreditation below.

Accreditation in Depth

We offer 5 different tuition payment plans and 3 different income-based scholarships to those who qualify. Scholarships are for the full Rockwell Tri-Doctorate. Students can complete one or all of the programs in the RTD. See the Tuition tab in the navigation menu above for more info!

Students learn from a complete repertoire of materials including our beautiful handpicked textbooks that students will use as desk references throughout their entire career. Additional learning materials range from periodic journals, video lectures, anecdotal theory from personal experience across the globe, and evidence-based studies in natural medicine.

Students are responsible for purchasing their own required textbooks and course materials just like at a regular university or community college. 

Each of our 5 holistic medicine programs comprise 8 interchangeable learning modules which vary depending on your focus of study. For more information on program curriculums, please see the Module tab in the navigation menu above. 

Our testing consists of multiple-choice and essays, or both, depending.

Unlike most natural health and herbal studies programs, Rockwell students have lifetime access and continuing education at on additional cost to ensure your knowledge stays current on trends in evidence-based natural medicine.

It takes 40-50 hours to compete Module 1. We are currently testing remaining modules for approximate completion times. A student working 10-12 hours per week should have no trouble completing a program with 9 months to 1-year. Students who can dedicate more time can complete programs much faster. Most students complete one program at a time within the coursework of the Rockwell Tri-Doctorate (RTD). 

Are you ready to develop the skills you need to become an expert in your field? Our programs help prepare the most highly-trained and in demand holistic medicine practitioners in the world. Students want a school they can be proud of and a name they can trust. That name is Rockwell.

How can you tell if Rockwell is right for you? Do you absolutely love the quality of our programs? Do you appreciate a quick response to any concerns? Do you want to go to a school where your voice is heard and your opinion matters? Does Rockwell resonate with your ideas of what a holistic medicine school should be?

These are the biggest deciding factors for those who choose Rockwell. 

Admissions Note

We love and welcome vegans, who are always more than welcome to study our Advanced Holistic Nutrition Program or our Rockwell Tri-Doctorate, which are the two programs that contain the Advanced Holistic Nutrition Doctorate core curriculum Module V.

We have an entire section that makes a compelling case for veganism, and we have an entire section that presents a case against it.

Please be aware that while you will learn about veganism, raw foods, and vegetarianism, you will also be required to learn about AIP (autoimmune paleo), keto, and Weston A. Price, as Rockwell graduates must have full working knowledge of all traditional and therapeutic diets.

We apologize in advance for any conflict of interest. Please consider this when applying.


In Module VIII, students learn about bedside manner and holistic business practices, which helps prepare them to better serve their communities. 

Graduates receive custom designed certificates of completion with any program they finish.

Certificates of completion include a unique Rockwell identification number for public verification which helps ensure responsible practice above all else.

Our graduates may not treat disease, diagnose medical conditions, prescribe pharmaceutical drugs, or in any way pretend to be a licensed medical doctor or physician. This includes the use of needles, unless the graduate is also a licensed medical professional, and only then if done in an appropriate setting.

*We reserve the right to revoke a Rockwell Registration ID# and alert the public via any inquiries if a graduate is found to be practicing outside of our ethics and standards, per the above guidelines.

Board Certification

Most people are surprised to discover that board certification is always optional for both licensed medical professionals and holistic medicine practitioners.

While some people feel absolutely no pressure to have board certification and feel it is too mainstream, others may feel that it gives them an extra boost in confidence and affects how they are perceived professionally in the public eye.

Those individuals can seek board certification through any or all of the following organizations which include the American Naturopathic Certification Board (our first choice), the American Naturopathic Medical Certification Board, and the American Association for Drugless Practitioners.

Please note that even though we do not seek "professional accreditation" from the ANCMB or the AADP, they still accept our students for their version of "board certification".
