Why NCNM?

Situated in the heart of the regional hub for natural medicine, the National Centre for Naturopathic Medicine is located at Southern Cross University’s Lismore campus. With a proud history in plant science and naturopathic medicine, the University was the first to offer a naturopathy degree 25 years ago.

The National Centre for Naturopathic Medicine is well suited to carry out a range of contracted research projects, including clinical trials and studies. Our on-campus headquarters provides a comfortable, modern and collaborative space for students, professionals and staff to meet and work from.

The campus occupies 75 hectares of lush, sub-tropical grounds including landscaped gardens and rainforest walkways that are home to a variety of native wildlife. At the heart of student life is the Learning Centre, a state-of-the-art facility with individual and collaborative learning spaces and library resources, including an historical archival collection of naturopathic texts.

The SCU Health Clinic provides allied health services to the general public, students and staff, and clinical experience for students in allied health disciplines. Science labs cater for studies such as anatomy and physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, manual therapies, and nursing with state-of-the-art equipment.

Lismore's vibrant arts, culture and music scene includes signature Byron Bay events such as the Byron Writers Festival, Splendour in the Grass, Fall Music and Arts Festival and Byron Bay Blues Fest.
