Admissions Representative Profile
Brandon Hamilton, Director of Admissions
Brandon Hamilton joined the NCNM staff in February 2013. Previously he served as assistant dean and director for admissions at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law in Kentucky. In this position he was responsible for providing leadership and strategic direction for recruitment, admissions planning, student selection, staff supervision and budget management for the Office of Admission and School of Law. Brandon feels that combining strong collaboration with faculty, students, alumni and community partners with current enrollment management concepts is the key to successful recruitment. Under his guidance, the Brandeis School of Law admissions office enhanced practices, policies and procedures, increased its applicant pool and expanded its geographic reach.
Brandon is a strong supporter of natural medicine and sees the enormous potential NCNM—and the medicine—represents.
