AOMA is a national leader in acupuncture and Chinese medical education. Students at AOMA benefit directly from the school's strong reputation. The institution offers rigorous masters- and doctoral-level curricula taught by internationally renowned faculty, study abroad opportunities, demonstrated student success, and a supportive community in a dynamic city. The focus on integrative healthcare sets AOMA apart from other schools of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). AOMA was also the first stand-alone, single-purpose school of Chinese medicine to achieve regional accreditation, and the first school of its kind to be accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. This achievement is a testament to the quality of the school and its programs.

AOMA is committed to the success of our students and has gathered together a team of world-class faculty dedicated to creating a meaningful educational experience for them. The faculty are here to share their knowledge and expertise to assist the next generation of practitioners to help, heal, and transform the lives of their patients and communities.

AOMA has three degree programs in acupuncture and Chinese medicine, a certificate program in traditional Chinese herbal medicine, and an introduction to traditional Chinese medicine for those seeking enrichment but not a diploma.


Graduates of the Master of Acupuncture with Chinese Herbal Medicine Specialization from AOMA are qualified to take the four National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) board exams. Graduates of the degree who have passed the required exams, are eligible for licensure in all the states and the District of Columbia that have a practice act for the acupuncture profession. As of January 2021, only 3 states do not have an acupuncture act - Alabama, Oklahoma, and South Dakota. NCCAOM information on state
