Portrait of Joni OlehausenThe nation’s top school for natural medicine has named Joni Olehausen, ND, associate dean for naturopathic medicine at Bastyr University’s San Diego campus.

“I am honored to continue to serve Bastyr as the associate dean at Bastyr University California,” said Dr. Olehausen. “This position presents new opportunities for me to contribute to the tremendous growth and development of the new campus. I’ve really enjoyed working with students, staff and faculty at the Kenmore campus and look forward to building new relationships with the Bastyr community as I transition to San Diego.”

Dr. Olehausen currently serves as associate dean for clinical education and associate professor in Kenmore, Washington. She previously served as both the dean of medical education and the dean of clinical education at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Ariz.  In addition, Dr. Olehausen served for a decade as a commissioned officer with the U.S. Army Reserve, earning the rank of captain.

In her new role, Dr. Olehausen will help oversee Bastyr University California’s Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine program. This is an exciting time for the program, as it is poised to begin its second year of operation.  The San Diego campus is experiencing tremendous growth both in terms of student enrollment and square footage.

“We welcome Dr. Olehausen’s move to San Diego as we continue to expand our services to the community,” said Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church, PhD. “To have someone with Dr. Olehausen’s experience and reputation help lead our naturopathic medicine program will be a benefit to students, faculty and staff. I am confident medical professionals in the San Diego integrative medicine community will enjoy working with such a consummate naturopathic professional.”

Dr. Olehausen will begin her new role on September 13, 2013, just a day before Bastyr University California celebrates its one-year anniversary. The campus and its teaching clinic are located at 4106 Sorrento Valley Blvd., San Diego.
