AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine Celebrates 20 Years

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 11, 2014
Updated: Saturday, March 08, 2014

AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine celebrated its 20th year on Friday, January 31st. More than 150 people attended the cocktail reception that also served as an occasion to celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year. Dr. William Morris, president and CEO, thanked people for coming and for supporting AOMA through the years.


 

Distinguished guests included Marilyn Allen, who serves as editor in chief of Acupuncture Today and marketing director of the American Acupuncture Council,Rich Goldstein, managing partner of Yoga Yoga, Wally Doggett,president of the Texas Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and Joshua Saul, acting president of the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

"I want to thank each and every member of the AOMA community. Our history encourages us. AOMA has achieved regional accreditation, acquired a new campus, introduced a doctoral program, expanded to integrative clinics, and recruited outstanding faculty and students," said President Morris.

Over the last 20 years, AOMA has grown by every important measure including its student body, faculty, accreditation, campus facilities, patients served, and community outreach. Student enrollment has continually been on the rise, from 18 students in the inaugural class to over 200 students today.

AOMA’s reputation as a national leader in the field of acupuncture and Chinese medicine education, healthcare and policy-making also continues to grow. Collaboration with the Seton Family of Hospitals began in 2006 with AOMA students offering acupuncture inside of the Seton Topfer Community Clinic and expanded in 2008 with AOMA becoming a key partner in the creation of the Seton Williamson Medical Center GoodHealth Commons Integrative Wellness and Education Center.

In 2009 AOMA became the first stand-alone, single-degree granting school of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in the nation to be regionally accredited, and the first school of its kind to be accredited by theSouthern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS).

AOMA developed a new graphic identity with the tagline "Graduate School of Integrative Medicine” in 2010. In 2011, the opening of its new 19,000 squarefoot headquarters campus filled specific needs of the college’s growing graduate program in acupuncture and demand for additional clinic space. The AOMA campus is now more than six times the size of the original office space in 1993.

Last July the first cohort of the doctoral program began the 74-credit, two-year program. The DAOM program clinical specialty is the care and management of pain and associated psychosocial phenomena. The program also has a focus on research and leadership.

"With one of only two regionally accredited doctorates in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, AOMA stands for quality and discipline in the medical arts and sciences," said Dr. Morris.

AAAOM-SO Students and The American Acupuncturist

Posted By Administration, Friday, December 27, 2013
As part of the Student Organization membership, (using username and password), AAAOM-SO student members can read each issue of The American Acupuncturist, AAAOM’s professional quarterly journal, online. This peer-reviewed journal, featuring scientific research, case studies, reviews of new AOM books, and much more, is a wonderful learning opportunity for master’s students to see their peers’ contributions as well as review articles by seasoned researchers. The journal publishes a variety of articles by first-time authors—a great number of them are recent DAOM degree holders whose submissions receive peer reviews from accomplished professionals in the AOM field and expert editing advice and review by the journal staff. In addition to online access, printed past issues are also available through school libraries if the school is a current AAAOM member. This is an excellent example of how the AAAOM serves students at all levels.

If you are a current AAAOM-SO member, take a look at the current issue right now.

Patient Outcomes and Experiences of an Acupuncture and Self-Care Service for Persistent Low Back Pain: A Mixed Methods Approach

Posted By Administration, Friday, December 27, 2013

Supported self-management, acupuncture, and information can help reduce the symptoms of low back pain. These approaches are currently recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in the U.K. as treatment options for patients with persistent low back pain. However, there has been no previous evaluation of a service providing them together for this common problem. The purpose of a service evaluation project by the Beating Back Pain Service (BBPS) was to report patient outcomes and experiences in a primary and community care setting, delivering acupuncture, self-management, and information to patients with chronic low back pain. The BBPS provided musculoskeletal pain management combining self-management with acupuncture, which was found to be highly effective by patients who completed a questionnaire about their back pain problems after such combined treatment. Further consideration of these methods is required regarding how to best engage patients in self-management.
