National is also unique in that it is one of the few universities in the world that offer degrees in chiropractic medicine (DC), naturopathic medicine (ND), as well as master’s degrees in acupuncture and oriental medicine, on the same campus. This allows for collegiality and integrative clinical applications between the professions.

There are currently (2009) 839 students enrolled at National, making it one of the small elite colleges providing a top quality education.
