Naturopathic medical students training at Bastyr University Clinic (BUC) in San Diego now have expanded medical training opportunities with the addition of two clinical faculty members and two new specialty services being offered at the teaching clinic: Integrative Urgent Care and Integrative Oncology.
Joy Hardison, MD, MPH, joins the University as adjunct professor and medical director of Integrative Urgent Care services at BUC. Dr. Hardison graduated from the Mayo Clinic Medical School in Minnesota and completed her residency training in emergency medicine at the University of Arizona. She practiced emergency medicine at Kaiser Permanente and Scripps Health in San Diego before joining Bastyr. Dr. Hardison’s expertise, combined with the naturopathic medical training of the students, allows the clinic to offer unique integrative medical treatment for most urgent health concerns, such as minor infections and minor traumas.
Debrah Harding, ND, FABNO, joined Bastyr this January as the lead clinical supervisor offering Integrative Oncology Care at the clinic. Dr. Harding comes to Bastyr with over 20 years of experience in the field of naturopathic medicine, as well as expertise in integrative oncology from years practicing at Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Hardison and Dr. Harding as part of our clinical team,” said Dr. Ryan McNally, ND, PA, chief medical officer at BUC. “Their expertise will expand clinical training opportunities for our naturopathic medical students by increasing their exposure to a diversity of medical services and patient conditions. At the same time we will continue to greatly enhance the health and well-being of the San Diego community.”
