THE NATIONAL COLLEGE OF NATURAL MEDICINE CLINIC AT INACT
NCNM is the oldest accredited naturopathic medical college in North America, which blends naturopathic medicine, classical Chinese medicine and modern science in its curriculum. In partnership with VOA's InAct, we operate the NCNM InAct Clinic. Located in southeast Portland, this clinic provides care via a comprehensive outpatient program for first time offenders with drug and/or alcohol addictions. We provide primary health care to the community as a whole. In InAct's new facilty, the Clinic has three, private exam rooms, with clinic equipment made possible by a generous grant from the Borchard Foundation. Fifty NCNM medical students in addition to two licensed physicians volunteer over 2,200 hours each year at the clinic. Our partnership supports the trend of an increasing number of patients who are seeking preventive, non-invasive, and low-risk health care. This college’s graduates are among the best trained physicians for the delivery of such care.
