AOMA’s biomedical sciences curriculum is clinically based and provides a practical foundation in the concepts and diagnostic techniques of biomedicine, enabling them to interface successfully with allopathic practitioners. It is intended to provide students with a biomedical foundation applicable to Oriental medical practice that enhances their ability to communicate with patients and other practitioners regarding biomedical diagnoses and treatment plans. Anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, and physical assessment provide a solid underpinning upon which to build diagnostic and treatment skills that integrate Western and Eastern medical practices.
