This school is small which is why I decided on attending, however it offers few bells and whistles about the aesthetics and perhaps this will expand if the student body grows and places more of a demand for expansion in these areas. I'm here mainly to learn the art of healing the school seems to excel in offering for its students in oriental medicine so as of now, I'm too concerned about this.

I've not used the schools' network and will know after fall classes begin.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I think due to the nature of the field there is a rather large lack of funding as it seems to be an emerging field in the US. Even though oriental medicine has been effective for thousands of years and practiced widely in Asia and amongst asian communities in the US, our medical system that is established today is very research based in its approach; however recent trends to integrate the east and west approaches is gaining, the funding is taking its time in the schools. I feel the cost of american colleges is hugely inflated as a rule and especially since most of us will graduate with substantial debt and no guarantee we will find work, it is somewhat of a gamble. However, looking at the gainful employment statistics, speaking with alumni I feel this is a great field to get into and am willing to accept the challenges with this.

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.

Our faculty is mainly trained in China so they are extremely valuable and knowledgable. We have several clinic locations available to give us more varied experiences,
Sorry, there are no reviews.
