Student Services

AOMA recognizes that life balances includes both intellectual and personal growth during the course of a student’s development.  The health of the whole person constitutes a significant foundation for successful professional development and preparation for eventual acupuncture and Chinese medical practice. In support of a healthy life balance in its student community, AOMA offers a wide variety of opportunities for learning beyond classroom and clinic. Social events like Chinese New Year, the annual Halloween party, and fun, healthy off-campus pursuits, like kayaking on Lady Bird Lake, help students balance their challenging academic pursuits with restorative extra-curricular activity.

Student Clubs & Organizations

Student life at AOMA includes the AOMA Student Association and other student-led clubs and organizations that add to a substantive and enriching campus experience. To start a new club or find out more information about existing clubs, contact Student Services at

Health and Counseling

In order to support the health and well-being of the community, AOMA offers health services to students through discounts at AOMA student and professional clinics.

As a current student of AOMA, you have access to discounted rates for counseling with both C2 Change and the YWCA for 12 sessions per calendar year.  After 12 sessions have been reached, your rate will increase by $10, with the exception of female veterans utilizing YWCA.

YWCA reached a major milestone,  celebrating 100 years of service in 2007.  YWCA of Greater Austin is, and always has been, a service organization that focuses on the health and human service needs of women and girls most whom are low to moderate income. 

C2 CHANGE is a non-profit mental health agency dedicated to providing quality mental health treatment to youth and their families, regardless of income. We help families proactively address the challenges they face. Our techniques are evidenced-based and tailored to meet your unique needs. We offer our services on a sliding scale to keep treatment affordable.

Acu-tools Lectures

Several times a term, student services offers Acu-tools events.  These are free lectures and workshops that range in topic from professional development to new healing modalities.  They are mostly held on campus at lunchtime.

Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program helps new students from any background acclimate to the culture of AOMA’s student and academic communities. Feel free to reach out to Student Services at any point in your academic career if you want to match up with a mentor. Mentors also host occasional community events on and off campus.
