Strengths

Consider National University for its distinct advantages and be well-prepared for the career that awaits you.

Naturopathic Philosophy

We train students to focus on whole health healing and to treat the individual rather than the disease. This includes looking for underlying imbalances and supporting the natural healing process through holistic treatments.

Basic Science Curriculum
At National University, the rigorous basic science coursework provides a foundation for applying the biomedical sciences and becoming a well-versed diagnostician.

Clinical theory courses, early in the curriculum, aid students in applying the basic science knowledge they are acquiring to the understanding of the root causes of disease, and symptoms. A great example is our Basic Science Applications: Determinants of Health.

Homeopathy Instructors
Our homeopathy instructors offer some of the best instruction in homeopathy that you will find in North America. They combine their dedication to teaching homeopathy according to its basic principles along with a vast clinical experience, and a total commitment to mentoring students. In addition, you can choose a specialty rotation in homeopathic medicine during your clinical internship.

Collaborative Learning Opportunities
National University's institutional focus is on collaborative learning. Learn alongside first-professional students in our Chiropractic and Acupuncture/Oriental Medicine programs allows students to view each other as colleagues rather than competitors. 

Geographic Location and Diversity
National University is conveniently located 15 miles from the city of Chicago with easy access by car or Metra train.

Students come from across the country and internationally, creating a diverse student body.
