Founded as the John Bastyr Col­lege of Natur­o­pathic Medicine in 1978, the univer­sity was named af­ter a pi­o­neer and ed­u­ca­tor in nat­u­ral medicine who was a strong pro­po­nent of science and a men­tor to the natur­opaths who founded the school. Now with two cam­puses ( Ken­more, Wash., and San Diego), Bastyr trains natur­opaths and of­fers more than 20 other pro­grams at un­der­grad­u­ate, mas­ter’s, and doc­toral lev­els in nat­u­ral health dis­ci­plines, in­clud­ing acupunc­ture, Ayurveda, ex­er­cise science, mid­wifery, herbal sciences, nu­tri­tion, and pub­lic health.

In its 40- year his­tory, Bastyr has bro­ken many bar­ri­ers by be­ing the first school of nat­u­ral medicine to:

Es­tab­lish re­search fa­cil­i­ties to study and doc­u­ment nat­u­ral medicine. More than 100 stud­ies have been com­pleted or are un­der­way.
