Sonoran University of Health Sciences (formerly Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences) is a fully-accredited university dedicated to a comprehensive team approach to natural health and nutrition. Complementing patient care with innovative research and natural medicine backed by science, both Sonoran University students and graduates are using a uniquely different mindset to change healthcare. Sonoran University’s on-site Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine degree program blends unique opportunities for learning like the Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine with an evolving curriculum that keeps pace with changing medicine. Sonoran University’s College of Nutrition offers the online Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition and online Master of Science in Nutrition Business Leadership programs. These two fully virtual master’s programs combine flexible online access with the clinical and scientific knowledge to become an advanced nutritional professional.
Sonoran is accredited by the Council of Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME) and the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Both accreditations are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
