Degree: Holistic Medicine
Graduation Year: 2018

This graduate program is a rigorous and science-based one that prepares students for work as naturopathic physicians. All the staff at Bastyr University (from Admissions to Academic Advising, to Financial Aid to the Faculty) has been incredibly helpful and welcoming.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2015

Bastyr University is a natural science based school that has a small population of about 1,000 students and is one of an even smaller community of accredited naturopathic medicine education programs. My education has been one-of-a-kind, which is exactly how I will dedicate my practice as a Registered Dietitian. My dream of practicing medical nutrition therapy has always included Bastyr and I am incredibly thankful to be a part of that community. The drawback from this program is the expense to complete this program. As a graduate program it is highly demanding thus limiting time available for working to support living expenses and tuition costs. I am proud to be a student at Bastyr University in the MSN/DPD program.

Degree: Holistic Medicine
Graduation Year: 2019

Bastyr University has the best Naturopathic Medicine program in the country! They come at learning from all angles and work to give all learning styles something to sink their teeth into. Bastyr is adaptive, responsive and highly receptive to its students wants and needs. If natural health is something you are interested in there is no better place to learn. The community is incredibly engaged and passionate about what they are doing!

Degree: Holistic Medicine
Graduation Year: 2014

Bastyr is the best Naturopathic Medical college in the United States. It has a great program and I feel like the education is a good preparation for my future career as an ND/LAc. Difficulties included being away from my family and finding the time to work, amidst all the studying. I wouldn't change my decision one bit if I were to do it all over again!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently in Michigan under enrollment for 2014; I have graduated from Clayton College of Natural Health with my first ND degree in 2008. Bastyr is highly regarded as one of the top ND schools and I am highly anticipating my attendance there. I wanted to explain my answers, with only the above to choose from I expected it didn't look quite honest. Thank You for your consideration.

Degree: Holistic Medicine
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Sets up students to sit for Boards. Great exposure to relevance of studies to real world applications. Opportunity to explore the cultural and historical roots of program. Amazing campus environment. "Small town" kind of feel- everyone knows everyone. Cons: Expensive city to live in means more loan money taken out to survive on. There is so much to do locally it can be a distraction from studies. "Program Isolation" or the blinders effect occurs- students from different programs don't tend to interact much.
