Dr. David Scotten, ND, Scholarship for Excellence in Naturopathic Medicine
Dr. David A. Scotten, ND has distinguished himself as a visionary and cornerstone in naturopathic medical education in Canada. As the inaugural Dean of Academic Education at the ֱ̲ - Boucher Campus (formerly the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine) in Metro Vancouver, Dr. Scotten not only spearheaded the design and implementation of a comprehensive four-year naturopathic medical curriculum but also played an instrumental role in the institute achieving full accreditation by the Council of Naturopathic Education in 2004.
As we honour Dr. Scotten's retirement, we celebrate a luminary whose dedication shaped naturopathic medical education in Canada. The scholarship is a tribute to this achievement, and will award one enthusiastic third-year student whose leadership has positively impacted the ֱ̲ community. We invite the community to join us in continuing his legacy of furthering naturopathic education.
