Dr. Brons grew up in Southern California and obtained a PhD in Anatomy with neuroscience research in 1978. He has lived in Portland since 1979, and has been teaching at NCNM since 1981. From 1989-2002 he took a hiatus to do neuroscience research at OHSU and obtain a degree in Chinese medicine from OCOM. Dr. Brons had an acupuncture practice for a few years in the mid-nineties, but then decided that he still preferred an academic career, and now teaches at NCNM in both the ND and CCM programs. His areas of teaching are anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, and developmental biology.
