Innovative, hands-on learning for the future of naturopathic medicine 

The Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences is a leader in educating the next generation of naturopathic medicine leaders. Naturopathic medicine is a very personal form of medicine and SCNM purposefully maintains one of the lowest student-faculty ratios (6:1) among all naturopathic institutions. Even as a student, you'll be making a positive impact on your community.  That's an educational experience that's simply inspiring.

SCNM is a leader in naturopathic education

Over the past 25 years, SCNM has been a school of "firsts" in naturopathic medical education including:

  • Revised naturopathic medical education curriculum to reflect the best practices in medical education
  • Offering Natural Advantage, a medical school prep program for ND students to give a successful start to your journey
  • Supporting a Medical Center and The Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine on campus both focused on natural therapies and regenerative health
  • Implementing electronic health records (EHR) for patient care
  • Opened a 5,000 square foot library in a LEED platinum certified building with a focus on student study space
