What is ND Mini Camp?
ND Mini Camp is an immersive look into naturopathic medicine. In the program we explore the modalities and principles of naturopathic medicine, and give a taste to the experience of going through Bastyr’s ND program. Each day is designed to mimic the curriculum covered in the corresponding year of Bastyr’s ND program, from an introduction to naturopathic medicine to clinical education and research.
Who can participate in ND Mini Camp?
Anyone who is interested in pursuing a career in naturopathic medicine is welcome to register. Participants must be 18+ years of age.
Do I have to stay on campus?
No. You may choose from two options – overnight or day camp. Day camper registration does not include a room on campus. There are many hotel, Airbnb, and other housing options located nearby.
How do I get to campus from the airport?
Seattle has many public transportation options, including buses, trains, the Link Light Rail, and rideshare services. Find more information about getting to campus here. A shuttle will be provided on the last day of camp that returns to the airport. The shuttle will arrive around 2:00pm to Sea-Tac airport.
