The progressive SCNM education model is interactive and built upon proven, effective education methods used by the world’s most prestigious medical schools. This cutting-edge curriculum, redesigned in 2010, prepares NDs with a broad education, extensive clinical experience and the knowledge to provide the best patient care possible.
Unique SCNM curriculum features include a body-systems approach based on the principles of adult learning theory, clinical student experience from day one, team-based learning and a field observation program for students to shadow practicing NDs.
SCNM has pioneered naturopathic programs in environmental medicine, women’s health and pediatrics. The SCNM Medical Center features classrooms equipped with room-to-room video and wireless internet, and also houses Arizona’s largest natural pharmacy.
