"NUNM offers two bachelor of science degrees - one in integrative health sciences and one in nutrition, which offer students the opportunity to complete the final two years of their program, while building a solid scientific foundation in pre-health / pre-med education [...] ND program prerequisites [...] science-major level [...] health sciences programs have a societal responsibility to train competent graduates, healthcare providers and scientists who demonstrate critical judgment, extensive knowledge and well‐honed technical skills [...] to be qualified for health sciences programs at NUNM, those individuals must be able to meet both NUNM’s academic standards and the technical standards [...] flexibility: adapt to changing environments, display flexibility, and learn to function within the uncertainty inherent to situations encountered within diverse health sciences programs [...] naturopathic medicine is a patient-centered primary care approach to health care that focuses on restoring and optimizing health. It is a distinct system of health care — an art, science, philosophy and practice of diagnosing, treating and preventing disease [...] in his report, Abraham Flexner, a high school teacher whose highest degree at the time was a bachelor of arts, eschewed all medical approaches that he deemed lacking in scientific research and validity, or did not advocate the use of treatments such as pharmaceutical drugs [...] the mission of the College of Naturopathic Medicine is to educate and train physicians in the art, science and research of naturopathic medicine [...] practice-based learning and improvement: appraise, assimilate and apply scientific evidence to improve patient care [...] the six philosophical principles of naturopathic medicine: the practice of naturopathic medicine emerges from six principles of healing.

These principles stand as the distinguishing marks of the profession [...] the NPLEX Part 1 Biomedical Science exam [...] basic and biomedical sciences [...] clinical sciences: all courses within the clinical sciences curriculum begin with a brief overview of structure, function, anatomy, physiology and whole-system wellness. The bulk of the courses are devoted to diagnosis, assessment and treatment of pathology. Within the context appropriate to that discipline, clinical science courses address criteria for referral to specialists and integration of naturopathic medicine with conventional medicine [...e.g.] CLS 7330, 7330T – Pediatrics and Geriatrics (Lecture - 6 credits, tutorial – 2 credits): students who successfully complete the CLS 7330 series will demonstrate knowledge and application of clinical sciences related to pathology, disease prevention and age-specific preventive services, diagnosis, assessment, and management of both acute and chronic conditions related to pediatric and geriatric populations [...] CLS 7332, 7332T – Psychology and Mental Health (Lecture – 4 credits, tutorial – 3 credits): students who successfully complete the CLS 7332 series will demonstrate knowledge and application of clinical sciences related to pathology, disease prevention, diagnosis, assessment, and management of both acute and chronic mental health conditions [...] NDEC 8430E – Advanced Gastroenterology Lab (1 lab credit): this lab covers techniques used in a functional gastroenterology practice: integrated abdominal exam, gastric pH testing, visceral release and energetic psychology techniques.

Develop an appreciation for traditional healing methods backed by scientific study and research evidence [...] IM 422 – Introduction to Botanical Medicine (3 lecture credits and 1 lab credit): many plant substances are powerful medicines. This course explains the traditional, historical and scientific uses of plants [...] IM 431 – Integrative Health Sciences Capstone (3 lecture credits): one of the definitions of the word 'capstone' is a crowning achievement. This course is meant to provide students an opportunity to perform a final research or community/service project that they consider the crowning achievement of their integrative health sciences program [...] the bachelor of science in nutrition (BScN) program features four core threads: nutrition, natural sciences, social sciences and critical thinking.[...] students take traditional pre-health / pre-med classes in the natural sciences thread [...] these provide the scientific foundation for an understanding of the human body and the basic principles of health and disease [...] throughout this sequence, students also learn the foundations of research, and scientific and professional communication [...] the social sciences theme focuses on the interpersonal and professional growth of the student [...] an important role in clinical and scientific decision making is the ability to critically evaluate information [...] program outcomes[...#4] research and information literacy: demonstrate comprehension and skill with research methods and scientific inquiry [...] NS 401 Biochemistry for Life Sciences [...] NS 421 – Evidence-Based Practice for Pre-Health Professionals (3 lecture credits): medical literature plays an important role in clinical decision-making as well as scientific careers [...] NU 311 – Introduction to Nutrition (4 lecture credits): this course covers the basic principles of nutrition science [...] NS 432 – Physics with Lab [...] applications to the life sciences are emphasized [...] NU 436E – Nutrition for Exercise and Sports (3 lecture credits): this course investigates the basic, scientific and applied concepts of nutrition and substrate utilization [...]  Bachelor of Science in Nutrition[...] Biochemistry for Life Sciences [...] Scientific and Professional Communication [...] Whole Food: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition [...] exercise science [...] BSiHS – Integrative Health Sciences";
