Bastyr University California has named Erica Oberg, ND, MPH, as the director of clinical services at Bastyr University Clinic, gaining an influential leader in integrative medicine. As a researcher and professor at Bastyr University in Seattle, Dr. Oberg led groundbreaking research into naturopathic medical care for chronic conditions such as diabetes, attracting research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
In San Diego, Dr. Oberg will lead Bastyr University Clinic, an integrative primary care clinic that has grown faster than expected since opening in Sorrento Valley in fall 2012. She will help the clinic develop its focus on chronic disease, women's health, and treating the underlying causes of disease.
"We're able to offer patients a place where they can learn more about prevention and wellness and how to feel well in their day-to-day life," says Dr. Oberg. "I'm thrilled to be contributing to the preeminent clinic for integrative medicine in Southern California."
"We are training students in the best of evidence-based medicine as well as the ancient wisdom of healing traditions," says Dr. Oberg. "I'm happy to be working toward that vision."
Dr. Oberg graduated from Bastyr University in Seattle in 2003 and completed an accredited residency at Bastyr Center for Natural Health. She completed a master's in public health from the University of Washington in 2007 and an NIH-awarded post-doctoral fellowship in 2009. Her current research includes an investigation into biological markers of homeopathy and a clinical outcomes study of naturopathic care.
