What is Team Care?

At Bastyr, you’ll receive care from a team, combining knowledge to help you naturally solve your health issues and find a path to optimal health.

As the teaching clinic of Bastyr University, we offer a “Team Care” approach. You’ll benefit from the combined education, training, research efforts and experience of a licensed health professional (or clinical supervisor) and two to three advanced student clinicians. A clinical supervisor is intimately involved with each patient’s case and approves all diagnoses and treatment plans. 

Your health care team guides you toward optimal health while encouraging you to become an active partner in your health care, making decisions about treatments and lifestyle changes that are right for you. Our student/faculty teams prepare for and follow up on each appointment with a thorough case review, drawing on current scientific research and the best traditions of natural medicine. 

For consistency, we recommend that you schedule your appointments with the same faculty supervisor instead of student clinicians.
