The SCNM Experience

When you visit our campus, you will get what our students call “the feeling.”

It’s the feeling that SCNM is the perfect fit. Maybe it’s the Arizona sunshine and endless blue sky, the welcoming faces of the faculty and staff, the excitement and energy of the students, or the profound passion for naturopathic medicine found in every corner of the campus. Whatever it is, it adds up to “the feeling” that is unmistakably the SCNM experience.

Imagine being part of this community with a shared purpose dedicated to the study and celebration of holistic health and healing. It’s exciting, isn’t it?

Our students are active members in extracurricular activities and organizations that further the field of naturopathic medicine. With a multitude of student-organized events and activities, your life outside of the classroom will be memorable and packed with fun.

The changes from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) mark the beginning of a pivotal time for naturopathic medicine. Health care is moving from a fragmented system towards a more integrated and patient-empowered model with fewer barriers for NDs. With our expanding campus, growing community presence and numerous educational and clinical partnerships, SCNM provides the education and “the feeling” you need become a naturopathic physician and lead the way in this emerging health care framework.
