Bastyr University School of Naturopathic Medicine

Seattle, Washington

Bastyr University's School of Naturopathic Medicine is recognized globally for its rigorous curriculum and groundbreaking research. A fully accredited private university, Bastyr is an ideal place to live, study and play.

Its new eco-friendly Student Village is certified LEED Platinum and designed to fit into the campus' natural landscape. Located a short drive from both Seattle and the Cascade Mountains, the campus is set on 51 acres of wooded grounds next to Lake Washington and St. Edward State Park, offering miles of hiking, biking and running trails. Students experience a comprehensive clinical training program at the largest natural health clinic in the Northwest, the Bastyr Center for Natural Health. They also have the opportunity to engage in numerous research projects through the Bastyr University Research Institute.
