The Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences is a fully-accredited medical school dedicated to a comprehensive team approach to natural health and nutrition. Complementing patient care with innovative research and natural medicine backed by science, both SCNM students and graduates are using a uniquely different mindset to change healthcare. SCNM’s on-site doctoral degree program blends unique opportunities for learning like the Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine with an evolving curriculum that keeps pace with changing medicine. SCNM’s new fully online Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition and Master of Science in Nutrition Business Leadership programs combine flexible online access with the clinical and scientific knowledge to become an advanced nutritional professional.
SCNM is accredited by the Council of Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME) and the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Both accreditations are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
