"I started the program as a non-degree seeking student to get a feel for the school from the inside, as a student. I was very pleased to see the academic standards were high; the faculty are top of the line in their field and excellent teachers (those two don't always go hand in hand), and they seem genuinely concerned about meeting their curriculum objectives. Student services are very available and supportive; academic advising was very helpful with many options to accommodate my schedule and complicated needs. Registration was a breeze. The facility is always very clean and well maintained, the store is well stocked, and the store staff is friendly and well educated about all the products. The students and staff seem happy. I kept thinking it was a honeymoon period, but I am full-time now and I still find all of the above statements to be accurate. I love being a student at AOMA and am very excited about the career in acupuncture that is ahead of me." ~AOMA Student (2013 Student Survey)
