Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) Degree Program

The 21st Century Physician

There has never been a more exciting time to become a naturopathic physician. With increasing recognition that preventive care is essential to good medicine, naturopathic physicians are a natural fit for healthcare delivery that is sustainable, cost-effective, and effective.

The University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine is committed to training physicians for the 21st century: doctors who are leaders in the emerging paradigm of healthcare, blending research and innovative technologies with the art of healing and natural therapeutics to provide patient-centered care.

In an intimate setting of small class size and experienced faculty, students are challenged to bridge tradition with innovation while being mentored to explore the healer they are becoming. Come to UB and discover the 21st Century Physician you will become!

Principles and Practice

Steeped in traditional healing practices, naturopathic medicine emphasizes holistic, preventive care. By focusing on prevention, optimal health and wellness, and diet and lifestyle as first-line interventions, naturopathic physicians educate and empower patients to take responsibility for their health.

As a naturopathic physician and graduate of UBCNM, you will not only help people optimize their health, you will change the way they think about health – for themselves, their families, and the planet.

Program Overview

Since 2001, the College of Naturopathic Medicine has been graduating physicians who are revolutionizing healthcare in the Northeast and across the country.

Our curriculum combines traditional biomedical sciences with the latest developments in genomics and molecular biology to deepen your understanding of health, disease, and therapeutics. A semester format of 18-week sessions allows you to immerse yourself in the material and take the time to fully integrate concepts.

You will benefit from course content that is integrated across the curriculum and reinforced with case studies for in-depth understanding of the application to clinical practice. Throughout your four years of study, you will learn and practice natural therapeutics, applying them to patient care under the guidance and supervision of experienced naturopathic physicians.
