Taking Charge of Your Health

we’re looking for students who have a
fire in their belly this program is really intended for someone who is
already in practice but once to level up so the main difference between the
Bastyr DAOM program and DAOM programs in other parts of the country
is the the emphasis on research skill development writing and the very
comprehensive advanced pain management technique training Bastyr’s research
component is very strong and it’s very compelling for somebody who is
interested in learning about learning in order to work in any hospital setting
you have to have a doctorate you just can’t work at that level without it

our patients and I and I believe for the profession as a whole you
