Bastyr University San Diego Campus Opens This Fall

After months of preparations, Bastyr University recently learned it received regional accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) for its new California campus in San Diego. “To be the first and only accredited naturopathic medicine university in the State of California is an accomplishment of which we are immensely proud,” said Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church, PhD.  “Accreditation ensures that we will provide the same quality educational experience at our San Diego campus as we do at our main campus in the Seattle area.”

Bastyr University’s Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine program is also accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME), a specialized accrediting board recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

“Accreditation sets us apart from myriad other institutions who focus on natural health,” added Dr. Church. “It gives Bastyr University credibility that other schools do not have and solidifies our standing as the place to go for students interested in becoming licensed naturopathic primary care physicians.”

Bastyr University, located north of Seattle, Wash., is internationally recognized as a pioneer in natural medicine. As the largest university for natural health arts and sciences in the U.S., Bastyr offers more than 17 degree and certificate programs in fields such as naturopathic medicine, acupuncture and Oriental medicine, and whole-food nutrition.

Bastyr University California is scheduled to open in fall 2012.

Admissions for Bastyr University California are ongoing. Prospective students can contact the Bastyr University Office of Admissions at for more information.
