|Bastyr University in Kenmore|
Seattle-area Bastyr University announced August 12, 2011 that it will open a new campus in San Diego, CA, with plans for the first class to begin in Fall 2012.
"We are thrilled to secure a location for our California campus," said Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church, PhD. "To become the first regionally accredited naturopathic medical institution in California is a tremendous honor and we look forward to providing the same quality education as our Kenmore, Washington, campus does. Now students in California and throughout the southwest will not have to travel as far to receive a degree from the best University for natural medicine in the United States."
After many months of scouting, planning and research, the news comes as a welcome step forward in the future for Bastyr University, a pioneer in science-based natural medicine since 1978. San Diego was selected because of its strategic proximity to a significant number of prospective students, faculty and patients in Southern California who are interested in the natural health arts and sciences. The Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree program will be offered when the school first opens, with other degree programs expected to be offered in the future.
