  • Practice Management Field Work Program  Bridging the Gap between School and Career
    The Practice Management Field Work program is a voluntary enrichment opportunity, where students can assist local, successful acupuncture practices with their day-to-day operations, and thereby learn the business side of working in the health care field. AOMA maintains an updated list of Austin-based acupuncture clinics that offer paid and unpaid opportunities to work in their offices, doing various kinds of administrative work. As a student, you can use these opportunities to learn more about how an acupuncture clinic is set up and maintained. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities as a student, to enrich your own education in practice management. This networking opportunity to work alongside successful practitioners can help bridge the gap between being a student and working in the real world.

Job Opportunities

AOMA supports current students and alumni in their post-graduate endeavors.  One way we do this is by maintaining a list of acupuncture and Oriental medicine job listings and provide resources for finding job opportunities as a student.
