Doctor of Chiropractic (DC)
Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine
The doctor of naturopathic medicine (NMD) program at University of Western States (UWS) prepares students to take a holistic and individualized approach to health and healing.
Graduates learn to consider the whole-person including the patient’s diet, lifestyle, environment, genetics, physical, mental and emotional health, as well as other factors that influence health and well-being.
The inclusion of functional medicine principles in the UWS naturopathic program distinguishes it from other naturopathic programs. Naturopathic medicine and functional medicine are science-based, patient-centered approaches to achieving and maintaining health by addressing the root cause, not just suppressing symptoms.
SPORT AND PERFORMANCE PSYCHOLOGY (SPP)
CLINICAL MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING (CMHC)
Both degrees can be completed fully online with consistent and meaningful contact with faculty and instructors. One of the unique features of these programs is the standardized patient component, which allows students to apply their knowledge in simulated “real-world” scenarios with specially trained actors.
