We're happy to confirm that the California campus building will include a teaching clinic, Bastyr Natural Health Clinic. It will offer three treatment rooms and Bastyr faculty supervisors. The plan is to start small and expand the clinic in the coming years. The 2012 opening allows students to begin clinical observation in their first year, a feature of the redesigned naturopathic medicine curriculum.
Student orientation for the naturopathic medicine program will begin on Tuesday, September 11, 2012, at both campuses. Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church will be at the California campus to mark its opening. ND classes at both campuses begin on Monday, September 17.
We will have two forms of tutoring at the San Diego campus. For many classes, on-site local tutors will be available to help students. For some specialized course topics, we will have tutors from the Kenmore campus available via Skype/webcam.
Good news for prospective ND students: We are now accepting all applications to the Bastyr University naturopathic medicine program for fall 2012. We are offering the naturopathic medicine program at both our current location in Kenmore, Washington, and at our new location in San Diego, California.
Will international students be able to study at the San Diego campus?
We do not have federal approval to enroll international students at the San Diego campus in fall 2012. We continue to welcome international students to apply to our Kenmore campus, and we anticipate securing approval to enroll international students in San Diego in fall 2013.
The Bastyr San Diego building encompasses approximately 19,300 square feet divided into two floors, with ample classroom space. The building’s design and zoning allow the University to carry out laboratory and clinical education in the future without major infrastructure investments or extensive permitting.
