Nancy Scarlett, ND


Dr. Scarlett has been teaching in NCNM classrooms and clinics for 15 years. Her undergraduate studies were in biology and religion (not a lot of overlapping credits!) at the University of Puget Sound. She then studied bioethics on a graduate fellowship at the University of Tennessee. Searching for a profession that would pull together her interests and passions, Dr. Scarlett found a perfect fit with naturopathic medicine. 

Dr. Scarlett received her doctorate in naturopathic medicine in 1997 and then completed two years of family practice residency. She is currently an attending physician at InAct community clinic for individuals overcoming drug addiction.

Areas of interest and expertise:
•  Medical Ethics and Bioethics
•  Clinical and Physical Diagnosis
•  Urology
•  Essential Oils (aromatic botanical medicine)
•  Interprofessionalism

As one of the original Vanguard faculty members of the Helfgott Research Institute, Dr. Scarlett received training in, and consequently implemented, evidence-based medicine into the curriculum. She recently co-authored a pilot research study on interprofessional attitudes at CAM institutions.

In addition to teaching in the naturopathic program, Dr. Scarlett also teaches courses in the master's of research program and the classical Chinese medicine program.
