Prepare for practice as a naturopath with hands-on learning and practical skills development.
Naturopathy helps people achieve optimum health using their body’s own healing mechanisms. As a graduate of ACNT’s Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy), you will apply a modern scientific approach alongside naturopathic principles – with the opportunity to work in clinical practice or in education, business or research environments.
Understanding the patient as a whole, naturopaths take into account their symptoms, emotional status, diet and lifestyle to treat the underlying causes of disease from a holistic perspective.
As a naturopathy student at ACNT, your study will focus on several core areas:
- nutritional and dietary therapy
- western herbal medicine
- naturopathic diagnostic techniques
This will be accompanied by subjects covering the biomedical sciences, essential for all healthcare professionals.
You will gain hands-on experience at the Think Wellbeing Centre under the guidance of experienced naturopaths, treating public patients. This will prepare you to confidently start practice in the community.
What you'll learn:
- Biological and Social Sciences
- Naturopathic and Clinical Studies
- Nutritional Medicine
- Western Herbal Medicine
- Flower Essences
