When you graduate from Bastyr University, you'll be armed with current scientific knowledge and an in-depth understanding of holistic healing. Although that may be all the career preparation you'll ever need, some people may want extra help with the business side of launching their careers. This may include help with resumes, self-promotion, or practice management.

Fortunately, Bastyr University offers the resources students and alumni need to help them flourish. Over the past several years, the University has developed a strong Careers and Leadership Center that offers a variety of resources tailored to individual needs. Run by Tom Bull, MA, this office is committed to serving students with up-to-date, comprehensive career-related resources. "We are collaborating with experts locally and nationally to ensure we have the best tools to help our students," says Bull.

Services include the following:

  • An intranet (MyBU) career page with resume and cover letter samples, job postings, job-hunting tips and other resources
  • Brown bag lunch talks on career-related topics
  • Weekend workshops led by outside professionals on topics such as leveraging social media and running a successful business
  • A Facebook page with center updates, upcoming events and career tips
  • Personalized resume feedback
  • Mock interviews
  • MyBU career page access for alumni

Additionally, Bastyr has partnered with several outside organizations that offer career services, including Health of Business, Business of Health (HBBH), which offers business-management trainings to people in the health professions.

Beyond career services, Bastyr offers many other ways to help you launch your career. Graduate students choose from a database of a wide variety of practitioners with whom they can do preceptorships/internships. And Bastyr offers a number of residency positions for naturopathic medicine and acupuncture and Oriental medicine graduates. All of this outreach happens through the Office of Graduate and Community Medicine, which works to offer students a wide variety of training opportunities outside of school.

So, when you begin your schooling at Bastyr, keep in mind that we offer free help for advancing your career and maximizing your chances of a prosperous and healthy future.
