The University of Bridgeport’s Naturopathic Medicine Clinic offers team-based medical care with a focus on patient education and the use of natural and preventative diagnostics and therapeutics. Clinical supervisors are Connecticut-licensed naturopathic doctors (NDs) who, with the assistance of student interns, provide patients with comprehensive naturopathic care. Naturopathic doctors are trained in medical sciences, naturopathic philosophy, and the prescription of natural medicines, and are licensed to diagnose and treat disease. A naturopathic assessment will take into account the physical as well as mental, emotional, social, and environmental aspects of your health issues. Treatments are safe, naturally-based, and designed to meet each patient’s unique needs. The naturopathic team will take into account any relevant medical and pharmaceutical care and can collaborate with other health care providers as necessary.
Family Medicine for the 21st Century
Working as a clinical team, licensed Clinical Supervisors and student interns provide naturopathic medical care for patients of all ages, from pediatrics through geriatrics. The whole family can be seen for medical exams, including men’s and women’s yearly exams, well child visits (CT state school physical exams are NOT included), and orthopedic assessments as well as acute care for minor illnesses. Naturopathic medicine is optimal for preventative care and the treatment of chronic illness at any age. For patient convenience, we offer on-site Laboratory and X-ray facilities and a dispensary. Open to the general public, the Dispensary offers natural medicines, including professional line supplements, herbal medicines, homeopathics, and more.
Naturopathic Specialties and Services
In addition to basic naturopathic care, the Naturopathic Medicine Clinic offers specialty clinical shifts in classic homeopathy, mind-body medicine, and physical medicine. These services may require a referral, so please inquire about these at your initial naturopathic care visit. Additionally, the teaching clinic houses hydrotherapy and physiotherapy rooms, which may be recommended by your clinical team.
