¿Qué aprenderé?

Naturopathic doctors are primary healthcare practitioners trained in all the same sciences as a doctor of medicine (MD) but they emphasize and practice holistic diagnosis and non-toxic treatment, and proactive prevention to promote wellness. In addition to the medical curriculum, a naturopathic physician studies clinical nutrition, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology, and counseling.

According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, NDs treat all medical conditions; conditions that are commonly treated include but are not limited to allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, respiratory conditions, heart disease, and cancer. NDs can perform minor surgery and are trained to utilize prescription drugs, though the emphasis in naturopathic medicine is on natural healing.

Portland State offers a strong pre-naturopathic medicine program that enables students to complete their prerequisite coursework, earn a baccalaureate degree, and obtain assistance in preparing for and applying to naturopathic schools.

Pre-naturopathic medicine is a professional track (not a major), but common majors for pre-naturopathic students include Science, Biology, Health Studies: Health Science, and Social Science. Students can choose any major while also completing their pre-naturopathic coursework.

Prospective students interested in PSU can meet with a pre-naturopathic advisor to learn about the pre-naturopathic track.

PSU has dedicated pre-health advisors to help students plan their coursework, support them in gaining relevant healthcare experience, and guide them through the process of applying to naturopathic schools such as the National University of Naturopathic Medicine (NUNM) or Bastyr University.

There are a very wide range of clinical and other volunteer opportunities available in the Portland area to help students better understand the role of naturopaths and other healthcare providers, gain exposure to different clinical settings, and boost their application to naturopathic programs in the future.

Incoming pre-health students seeking mentorship can apply to be matched with PSU's Ignite mentors. This is a one-year commitment (fall, winter, and spring terms) for mentors and mentees.

Student organizations on campus help students to connect with peers pursuing pre-health tracks or science fields, as well as many different multicultural, social, and community involvement focused groups. Examples of student groups include the Health Promotion Student Organization, Portland State Women in STEM, Science Outreach Society, Biology Investigation and Outreach, and the Neuroscience Club at PSU.

WHAT CAN I DO AFTER COMPLETING IN PRE-NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE TRACK?

Students who complete this program go on to complete school to become a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND).
