AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine


AOMA Celebrates 20 Years


AOMA Celebrates 20 Years

With an internationally renowned faculty, strong leadership, regional accreditation, demonstrated student success, and a new campus opened in the spring of 2011, AOMA’s reputation as a national leader in the field of acupuncture and Chinese medicine education, healthcare and policymaking continues to grow.

Since its founding in 1993, AOMA has grown by every important quantitative and qualitative measure including its student body, faculty, accreditation, campus facilities, patients served and community outreach. 

In 1993, Dr. Stuart Watts started the Texas Acupuncture Institute (TAI), with an inaugural class of 18 students crammed into 3,135 square feet of office space. The school later changed its name to The Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin (AOMA) and in 2010 the school rebranded as AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine.

As AOMA grew, so did its reputation among other schools in the acupuncture and Oriental medicine arena. In 2000, the Traditional Chinese Medicine World Foundation honored the academy as one of four schools that provided the best clinical training in the profession. In 2002, AOMA received the same honor from TCM World for its clinical training, and an additional honor for the quality of its faculty.
