At AOMA, there are no athletic teams, although we do have Taiji and Qi Gong classes. For these classes we meet in the Dojo, which provides us with a serene place to learn and meditate. Our library is well stocked with books from all over the world and our librarian, David, is wonderful.

Our new campus lay out flows nicely and has amazing Feng Shui. AOMA is a small school and we have just what we need. The grounds are well kept by our maintenance man, David (ha! lots of Davids employed at AOMA). Right in the middle of the main courtyard is a lovely koi pond with bamboo, lotus flowers, koi (of course!) and turtles.

There is a nice student lounge with tables, chairs, couches, microwaves, sink, filtered hot or cold water, free green tea, and a refrigerator. It's usually really clean and well maintained.

The Academy of Oriental Medicine of Austin is a school which specializes in acupuncture and herbs. Our program is constantly evolving and being perfected so students get the most education for a reasonable cost. Our teachers are wonderful...many of them are M.Ds or N.Ds as well as licensed acupuncturists.

Every year AOMA organizes the Southwest Symposium, which is a continuing education conference for acupuncturists or other health care professionals. There is always a wonderful line up of presenters that give excellent lectures to enrich our learning experiences and bring new knowledge to our practice.

Every other year there is a 5 week trip to China. During this trip, students are shown many historical monuments and temples in Beijing and Chengdu. Students are also given the opportunity to observe in hospitals and learn even more about how acupuncture and herbs are used traditionally. Finally, students are taken to Emeishan (the tallest of the 4 sacred Buddhist mountains) for meditation, Taiji and Qi Gong practice. This year students may stay an extra week to go to Tibet.

I have been researching colleges and universities of oriental medicine in the US for the past two years. Academically speaking this is a sound accredited through national and regional boards of colleges and institutions which was a must for my specific requirements and the curriculum offered according to the multiple alumni I'd spoke with offers students a very sound base in the field of oriental medicine. I'm impressed with small class sizes so the student/ teacher ratio offers a lot of time to pose questions, the hands on approach to learning really appeals to me and so do the experience of the faculty. My only major concern is that there are very few scholarships in this field in the US as of now since it seems to a recent emergence in mainstream US medicine and awareness of the effectiveness of oriental medicine. As an student with substantial undergraduate debt, I do have reservation since the loan rates are increasing each year it seems and there is no 100% job guarantee. However I am looking to the future of it's expansion and the Academy of Oriental Medicine seems to be doing the same, developing its doctoral program in research based evidence which seems necessary to integrate into american systems of health and popular culture. I'm very excited about the primary goals to offer preventive and cost effective health care for people that oriental medicine can provide, especially since we will have a growing aging population that will be needing this and many still are uninsured or receiving less than adequate solutions to their health needs.
