The Department of Health, Health Systems Quality Assurance Division (HSQA) is accepting applications to fill vacancies on the Board of Naturopathy (board). This recruitment will be used to fill a current professional member vacancy and one professional member vacancy that will be available in 2022.

HSQA is looking for public-spirited people willing to study the issues and make decisions in the public’s best interest. Health profession boards, commissions, and committees operate under legislative mandate to:

  • Protect the health and safety of the public; and
  • Promote the welfare of the state by regulating the competency and quality of health care providers under their authority.

The Governor’s Office and the Department of Health seek diversity in board and commission members. We recognize the value variety brings in understanding and serving the people of Washington State. We need candidates with diverse backgrounds and those who provide geographic representation throughout the state.

To qualify for either of the two positions on the board, an individual must hold a current active license as a naturopathic physician in the state of Washington.

If you are interested in applying for appointment to the Board of Naturopathy, please see Governor Inslee’s Boards and Commissions Apply to Serve webpage. On the application, please select that you are applying for the Board of Naturopathy. An application along with current résumé must be submitted by December 1, 2021.
