Dr. Alfred Hauk, N.D. was born in Greifswald, Germany, and raised in Alberta, Canada. Dr. Hauk was introduced to the power of Naturopathic Medicine in his childhood. After a career change in the 1980s, he completed his pre-med program at the University of Alberta. In 1990, Dr. Hauk graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto. Later that year he wrote and passed the Ontario provincial licensing exams.
Until his busy practice made it impractical, Dr. Hauk taught Nutrition and Nutritional Biochemistry at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. He continued to work at the college teaching and supervising 4th-year clinicians for many years.
Dr. Hauk was on the board of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors for 9 years and was the Chair for over 4 years. He has also served as one of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Naturopathic Association, and the Board of Governors of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.
He is a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND), and is a professional member of the Institute of Naturopathic Education and Research (INER, the institute that operates CCNM and the Schad Naturopathic Clinic, the on-site teaching clinic at the college).
His years of experience in family practice have been an educational and fulfilling journey that has allowed him to help others with the tools of Naturopathic Medicine. Dr. Hauk lives in Brantford with his wife Paulette, where he is an active volunteer in the community.
