A message from our president

November 2017 

My personal thanks to you for visiting AOMA’s website. We welcome you and hope you have an enriching experience as you browse and discover who we are, and how we work to incorporate integrity, compassion and service in achieving our mission and vision.

As AOMA concludes 2017, we enter the third year of our five-year strategic plan, a plan fully focused on realization of our mission to Transform Lives and Communities through Education, Patient Care, Leadership and Research in Chinese and other Integrative Medicines.

In our work, we are very much a mission-driven organization. 2016 and 2017 saw expansion of our efforts to explore affiliations with other educational organizations, strategically intended to enhance research capabilities, grant opportunities and fund raising for scholarship. We identified a potential affiliation opportunity with Bastyr University and spent most of 2017 exploring this opportunity.

After much work and discernment, both AOMA and Bastyr concluded that it is in each of our best interests, as two top-rated educational organizations known for excellence in our respective fields of medicine, to not continue affiliation efforts. We continue our strategic search for organizational relationships that will further our mission and we are very excited to explore other growth opportunities for AOMA in the upcoming year.

2017 has been a sentinel year in our development. We have been privileged by an increasing number of prospective students inquiring into our programs and touring our campus, with a 31% increase in school enrollees. We also had our ACAOM master’s degree programmatic site visit and received a full seven-year approval for the program. 2018 will be AOMA’s 25th Anniversary and we hope you will join us as a friend of our community, helping us to realize the mission that drives each of our students, faculty and staff in their work at AOMA.

-Betty Edmond, M.D.
