Now in our 40th year, Bastyr is proud of our historical legacy and of the growth we have witnessed in the naturopathic profession. Our campus leaders and students continue to make great strides in our local communities.
In Seattle, we have forged a new Center for Integrative Medicine in partnership with Virginia Mason. With nine clinics and one hospital location, this Seattle-area health system has sought out the natural medicine experts at Bastyr Center for Natural Health to expand their continuum of care in a way that answers their rising patient demand for effective, holistic approaches to common health concerns, opening up attractive career opportunities for our graduates.
In San Diego, clinical training opportunities continues to expand for our naturopathic medical students through the addition of integrative oncology care at Bastyr University Clinic. Beyond our own campus community, San Diego County officials have designated Bastyr a Live Well San Diego partner; we now join over 300 organizations to support the vision of a region “Building Better Health, Living Safely and Thriving.”
With innovative advancements in clinical training initiatives soon underway in 2019, we look forward to a bright future for our graduates as they find their place as naturopathic physicians transforming the health care system!
