Study at the National Centre for Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine education in Australia has undergone considerable transformation over the last 200 years; transitioning from an apprentice-based training model in the early nineteenth century, to a Bachelor degree qualification in the twenty-first century. The establishment of the National Centre for Naturopathic Medicine represents a major game-changer for the field that will lead the way in advancing naturopathic medicine education in Australia and internationally. 

Leveraging from Southern Cross University’s expertise in online education and the creation of flagship learning experiences, as well as the extensive experience and knowledge of internationally-renowned leaders in naturopathic medicine education and research, NCNM has developed a suite of innovative post-graduate courses that aim to enrich clinical practice, enhance professional standing, and empower future leaders in the field of naturopathic medicine.

The courses delivered through NCNM are underpinned by a framework of critical enquiry, clinical reasoning and evidence-based practice. Patient-centredness, integration, interdisciplinarity and the principles of naturopathic medicine form an integral part of these courses. Graduates will be equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to work with diverse patient groups and teams across a range of professional settings.

Details of the courses available through the National Centre for Naturopathic Medicine are provided below.
