Homeopathic Medicine Opportunities
Some students wish to further their knowledge in this area beyond the already solid curriculum. Each trimester, select interns can spend part of their week at the Center for Integral Health, near the Lombard campus. This clinic is staffed by medical doctors, as well as ND alumni of NUHS. The clinic provides primary care, with a very strong homeopathic focus. Interns can work intensively here, spending an entire day gaining experience in homeopathic treatment, and taking on more responsibility and more challenging case assignments as the term progresses. “It is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn from physicians who are experts in this field,” stated Lisa Krebs, ND, a National University alumnae who is now in practice at CIH. “Students will come away with the confidence and skills to accurately use this important modality in practice.”
Dr. Fraser Smith, assistant dean of naturopathic medicine, adds, “Homeopathic medicine is an area where expertise is built on mentored practice. We provide a solid foundation for students so that they can build their skill level having learned the correct methods of homeopathy.
